Promising young athlete Charlotte Williams is in action for Lancashire at Sportcity in Manchester on Sunday at the Aviva Regional Counties Final.

The 12-year-old multi-eventer, a year 7 pupil at St Augustine’s, Billington, will enter three events on the day.

A hurdler and high jumper, Charlotte also turns her hand to the shot putt, discus, long jump and triple jump.

Last year she was ranked 14th in the discus in the North West, and top 20 in all other disciplines, but this season is on target to be in the top three or four in the region.

The Blackburn Harrier, 5ft 7ins, also competes for her club in cross country and on the track, where she has raced at 100m, 150m, 200m and over two laps in the 800m.
