DEPENDABLE Brendan Greene was the fastest finisher for Queen's Park Harriers as the host club took fifth place in the Liddiard Trophy at Kingsbury.

Greene worked his way through the field to complete the course in 24th place overall with a time of 28 minutes 52 seconds, hotly pursued by QPH team-mate Wayne Roye in 36th (29:51).

Justin Lock, making a rare appearance, came 44th (30:55), followed by Joe Sinclair in 48th (31:07) and Kevin Basset, returning after a two-year absence in 51st (31:13).

The scoring eight were completed by Joao Diogo in 55th (31:22), Simon Brotherson in 57th (31:30) and Andy Angus in 60th (31:40), with debutant Bertie Miller just behind in 62nd place (31:44).

Two other new faces - Blair Murray (36:36) and Kevin O'Halloran (40:39) - also finished for QPH, in 95th and 104th places respectively, along with seven more club representatives.

They were: Frank Nolan (66th, 32:16), Damian Bastick (83rd, 33:55), Andy Holmes (97th, 36:50), Trevor Bycroft (101st, 38:56), Bill O'Connor (109th, 44:56), Alex Brodie (110th, 45:23) and Doddridge Benjamin (113th, 58:24).

And QPH's ladies went one better than the men as they claimed fourth place, led by debutant Jacqui Young in 18th (22:06).

Sixteen-year-old Naomi Wakeham made her way to the front of the pack, but was forced back by an asthma attack and had to settle for 20th place (22:33).

Mary O'Connor was next home for QPH in 21st (22:52), followed by Christine Bycroft (24th, 23:05), team captain Tania Roye (28th, 25:28) and Phyllis Sannoh (31st, 28:48).

n IT was a good day for the Goodhart family as all three picked up points for Thames Valley Harriers in the North West London Young Athletes League.

Eve Goodhart, who has just stepped up an age group, won the under-11 girls' 2,000m at Saturday's match in Loughton with a time of seven minutes 21 seconds.

Brother George was running third in the boys' race before TVH clubmate Alex Hamilton outsprinted him at the finish, while Sarah Goodhart was just outside the top dozen for the girls.

Chiara Kafero-Roberts was in the top six, while Aneta Jaskulska started quickly and dropped to seventh over the course of the race, finishing in 14:28.

TVH's Joe Cooper took seventh place (7:08) in the under-13 boys' race while, in the under-15/17 event, Zewede Hamid thrived over a lengthy course of 5,400m.

He finished ninth in 22:22, while Sadik Rashid, running his first cross-country event for the club, took a steady 10th place in the under-17 section (24:09).
