It looks the strongest Sheffield team of the season. Ben Shields does the 100 and 200 metres and Sheffield have a strong 400 metres pair of Tim Burn and Rick Yates whilst f Rhian Hastey should do well in the 800.In the field events the javelin is a particularly strong event for Sheffield with Lee Doran and Joe Dunderdale setto gain maximum points. Doran, with a throw of 75.60 is the top ranked UK thrower this year with Dunderdale, 73.97, ranked second. Jamie Williamson should also score well for Sheffield in the shot and discus.
