Joseph English won the AAA steeplechase title in 1907 and 1910 and was the Northern Counties champion eight times (1906-10, 1912-14). As the Northern title was then decided over the¾mile distance, it provided a good grounding when he made a successful switch to the 440y hurdles. He won the AAA title in 1914 and was runner-up in 1919.
Personal Best: 440yH – 59.6 (1914).
