Kyle Langford helped his senior men’s team to a second place finish in the latest round of the Premier Division of the British Athletics League.

The Watford-born athlete took part in two events to help secure Shaftesbury Barnet’s 304 point finish.

It was just a mere four adrift of the eventual winners Birchfield Harriers.

The 21-year-old smashed his personal best by mire than three seconds as he finished runner-up in the A-string 1500m crossing the line in 3:48.65 seconds.

He finished just behind James Gormley who won in 3:48.51.

And along with Sam Hazel, Jamal Rhoden-Stevens and Matthew Pagan, the team finished fourth overall in a time of 3:15.62 seconds.

Hazel also set a new personal best on his way to coming third in the A-string 400m in 47.49 seconds.

The field events proved to be particularly successful for the club as they enjoyed three double victories.

Zane Duqemin won the shot in the A-string with 60.26 metres and Angus McInroy won the B-string with a season’s best of 53.25m.

Unfortunately, it was Birchfield who prevailed as they finished ahead of Langford’s team in the last few events.

However, his teammates, of Rhoden-Stevens, Ossai Nengi, Lewis and Sean Lodovica did managed to cross the line third in 42.21 in the 4x100m event.

Their fine result last Saturday at the Lee Valley Athletics centre saw the team climb up to fourth in the table on 10.5 points - half a point adrift of second-placed Newham and Essex Beagles and third-placed Woodford Green with Essex Ladies.

Langford continued his good form of results this month in this competition.

The runner stormed home to victory in the 800m at the British Milers Club event in Brighton last week.
