There will be a packed programme of events as the county's finest gather for the Norfolk track and field championships at Sportspark in Norwich this weekend.

The first event tomorrow will be the hammer, which gets under way at 10am, and there are likely to be some outstanding long throws.

In the shot, at 2pm, Sophie McKinna, from Great Yarmouth will be making an attempt to achieve the world championship qualifying distance from her favourite circle.

The men's long jump should see a battle between Scottish international James McLachlan and Schools international Wesley Matsuka Williams.

In addition, the first of the Quadkids events for young athletes will be incorporated into the meeting.
