Weekly Update 24th May 22
Last weekend saw both the U15/U13 track team in action along with the Seniors. The U13/U15’s had their second YDL match of the season and finished second again to Woodford leaving them nicely in the top two in the division and so in line for promotion. The seniors went one better winning their first Southern Athletics League match of the season, albeit by a small margin, from Dartford
Youth Development League
Loads more PB's on a hot sunny day at Woodford. Stand out performances from some of our middle distance stars including Sam Scrase-Field 2:09 800m and Iris Williams and Josh Wellings with great wins in the 1500's.

Southern Athletics League
Great to have Brandon Sikity, Luke Moore and Craig Lacy back competing for the team and a combination of quality and some gap filling enable us to triumph at the end of the day over Dartford.
New team managers Richard Lewis and Sophie Fenner had a busy afternoon but were rewarded with the win.
On the women's side Doyin Aderinto won the 100m in a huge PB of 12.11 whilst Faith Assah tried her hand at 400m for the first time and showed her promise with a 61.06 debut. Holly Dixon, Megan Marchant, Lucy Marlow and Julie Backley cleaned up in the distance events whilst Natalie Mann, Sophie Fenner and Katie Marsh dominated in the throws.
On the men's side our sprinters all did well. Omari Markland-Montgomery won the 400m and again we were strong in the distance events courtesy of Chris Louden, Ed Adigwe, Neb Jovanovic and Luke Ford. Craig Lacy won all four throws showing his value to the team and we got good points in the hurdles care of Fuad Busoir, Reuben Chandler and Brandon Sikity
