Blyth relay team.

The team achieved selection after running a qualifying time earlier in the year and will line up alongside some of the fastest teams in the UK on August 18.

The squad is entirely made up of girls in the first year in their age group, which makes selection even more impressive.

Sadie Parker, Hannah Wilson, Millie Wilkinson and Maya Turner, along with reserve Faye Haynes, are the team that will travel to Birmingham and will compete in the main programme before the likes of Dina Asha-Smith and Kendra Harrison take to the track.
