Superfast Ryan on fire in first outdoor event

AMBLE lad Ryan Green was on fire at the weekend, notching a superfast time for his age group.

The 13-year-old set the ninth-fastest time in the UK this year for U15 boys over 800metres, with the clock stopping at 2m 6.18sec.

His run, which saw him beat rival Henry Johnson, came on Sunday during The Anne Marie Memorial track meeting at Shildon, County Durham.

It was the first outdooor track event of the new season.

A great year could be in store for the young Morpeth Harrier.
