Two fine days produced many fine performances from K&P athletes;there were a host of pbs and five club records,all of no mean standard.Camilla Thrush(32.53DT 3rd),Sarah Harris(40.71 300) & Dominique Blaize(6.01 LJ) all improved their own marks with Matthew Field taking his 100H time down to 14.51,only to lose his U15 record to a rampant Stuart Price(11.67 80H).Significant advancement,too,from elder brother,Craig,whose 51.73/1.57.07 bronze double highlights the influence of coach Wayne Martin.

Pride of place again to Sasha Gordon's Girls with a nigh-on perfect score of 59/60 points.Another DT W35 record for Camilla,a useful pb 400 from Rachel Burbridge(63.9) and a promising first appearance from sprinter Emily Harriman highlighted the female proceedings. On the mens side,we were indebted to 2nd claimer,Steve Cotton,for a large batch of points and we sort-of-limped into 3rd place and could do better. Res:W-K&p 59,E&E 35,Walton 15 and M-R&T 49,BA 46,K&P 36 etc

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.

A very close match resulted in K&P being shunted into 3rd of the 4 teams,partly because of the ludicrous points for officials rule but also because of late no-shows in the Boys U17 group. Nonetheless,Anna Field(in only her 2nd year as TM) and Fiona Whatley(debuting) can be well-pleased.
