Back to back fixtures at Norwich tested the resolve of the Seniors but they were well up to it and we finished a slightly surprising but rewarding 4th of the 8 teams - one place better than our opening BAL match in our first season in 2003. With 3 'heavies' unavailable,more onus was on Messrs Owen,Cook & Roberts but with excellent assistance from new javelin signing,Nick Surtees,we scored pretty well again.

Wins for Stuart Price,Gordon Lester,Richard Smeaton,William Trimble,Stephen Tutcher,Tim Sagar,Thomas Francis,Tom Stottor,Adam Wicks and a likely-looking 4x200 U15 squad of Price,Stottor,Sagar & Douglas Dick paved the way.Res:K&P 182,AFD 120,Croydon 107,Walton 104,G&G 76,S&D 15. The Div 2 matched featured Herne Hill as debutants who will surely challenge the Div 1 teams in 2005.

Maurice Joyce's SML team was a little threadbare but there were some useful marks. Under 17 Luke Wheeler opened his season well with a 11.8/24.4 double B win;Mike Maranzano proved he is over the injury which knocked him out for most of last season by winning over 3kSteeple(10.01.4) whlist our young javelin pairing(120 years plus) showed little respect for their fellow competitors. Res:HHH 148,Tonbridge 99,K&P 52.

After a slow start,Michele Wicks' team pulled clear to emulate last year's opening success in the first of this summer's SWL matches. Dominique Blaize with 3 A string wins,aided by similar successes for Rachel Burbridge,Sasha Gordon & the sprint relay team(Club Record at 50.3) piled up the points in the senior events whilst Harriet Lester & Lucy Jones(still U13) and their 4 x 100 colleagues kept the ball rolling in the U15 section. Camilla Thrush celebrated veteranhood with a complete set of W35 Club records in the 4 throws. Res:K&P 194,Colchester 173.5,Thurrock 172,Bournemouth 156.5,Southampton 91. Most abiding memory was a fine solo 800 by international Charlotte Moore(2.03.7).
