Chilly Bank holiday weekend for the first UAG YDL match 2019


The first U17/U20 match this season was quite a cold one, as there was a slight breeze blowing all throughout the day.  Unfortunately, mainly due to the upcoming exams and some late injuries, we had only 25 K&P athletes competed at Harrow.  This was 10 athletes down on our first YDL UAG last season.  In order to be competitive as a team in this league we need a turn out ideally of 40+ athletes. We have more than enough athletes at the club, so we need a big rallying cry from all of us, including the athletes that competed, to get more members involved at the remaining 3 matches. Not unsurprisingly, we struggled to fill lots of the events, notably the longer distance runs and many of the U20M events. Notable events on the day were the AAA Grade 1 performance by William Hobson throwing the Shot 14.51m, the U17W & U20W relays who both smashed the club records with a 50.20s (previous 51.1s U17W) and 52.60s (previous 53.4s U20W), a PB in the Pole Vault for Flora with 2.90m and we had two 1st places, three 2nd places and one 3rd place in the 200m races! There were a few other PBs on the day, please look at the full results on the Power of 10 (link provided below).  But it was not enough to compensate for the low turnout of athletes and we finished up 6th. If everyone who is not already up to the maximum number of events would fill one more event and with more of our athletes joining in, we may be able to get the points needed to avoid relegation. The next match at Hillingdon on 26 May will give us every opportunity to get everyone out, fill even more events in track and field, and go for a higher finish.

SCVAC Report by Nicky Atkins


Monday 29th April 2019 was the first meeting of the SCVAC (Southern Counties Veterans Athletic Club) league. This meeting was held at Wimbledon Park Athletics track, hosted by Wimbledon Hercules. Seven clubs attended this first meeting. Walton AC did not show.

Unfortunately at this first meeting the team was extremely depleted on the night due to other engagements and injury. Even the team manager was unable to compete having completed the London Marathon only the day before.

However, Susanne Dietrich, Nicki Murphy and Jo Richardson were able to compete and worked their socks off raking in the necessary points.

I am pleased to announce that with just three athletes we finished third (80 points) on the night to Epsom and Ewell Harriers (151 points) and Wimbledon Hercules (107 points).

The date of our 2nd meeting is Monday 20th May at Ewell Court with Epsom & Ewell Harriers hosting

Lily B Match Report: 22nd April 2019


The first Lily B match of the season was at Epsom and Ewell on the beautiful Easter bank holiday Monday. The girls showed a great team spirit throughout the day. One athlete even rushed all the way to the match after a transatlantic flight to make it just in time for her events, what a great effort! 

We had a few last minute changes due to illness/injury but special thanks to those people that stepped up to fill an event when it was needed. This made a huge difference, as we gained those extra points which meant we enjoyed our 1st win of the season by 13 points. As new team managers, we felt very proud of all the girls and really enjoyed the day.
