Ward (pictured) first won the 3,000 metres. There, he sat in on Epsom College pupil Ed Prickett until 600 metres to go, when he unleashed a powerful finishing burst, covering the final lap in 58 seconds, to cross the line in 8 min 35 sec, 10.3 seconds ahead of Prickett.

The Wallington High School youngster adopted similar tactics in the 1500 metres on Sunday morning.

Allowing Prickett to set the early pace, he struck just before the bell, and came storming home with a 57-second final lap in 3:53.2 to beat his lifetime best as well as the championship record - 3:54.1, set by Epsom and Ewell's Dave Warren in 1975.

Two other Sutton junior men winners were hurdler Dominic Savan (16.6) and triple jumper Dave Wellstead (13.50 metres), who also took the silver in the long jump (6.23 metres).

Walton's James Rowley won the discus (47.35 metres), Epsom and Ewell's Chris Mangham the javelin (47.35 metres), and Belgrave's Tim Abeyie the 200 metres (22.4).

Walton's Matthew Cook won the boys' under 13 shot, while Richmond and Twickenham's Stephen Robinson took the discus title.
