ANOTHER MEDAL FOR BOB’S COLLECTION Ilford AC life member Bob Dobson, a former European & Commonwealth ganes Representative, belied his veteran status to slog it out for 25 circuits of Garon Park Track on a hot, humid and windy Saturday morning to clock 71 minutes and 3 seconds to take a silver medal in the Essex 10,000 Metres’ Walk Championship, beaten only by another former GB Commonwealth Games athlete, Dan King of Colchester Harriers.
