British Athletics League Division 2, Match 3

Kingston, July 2nd 2016


After a spirited display in Bedford that brought a 4th place finish with a depleted team, the prospect of a home match in a period with few exams was a welcome one for K&P’s British Athletics League squad, with Kingsmeadow the venue for Match 3 of the season. The build-up was certainly an easier one for Team Manager Chris Hall, with a settled squad being assembled relatively early and only one eleventh-hour dropout spoiling an otherwise stress-free preparation for the match.


The weather on the day itself was, to put it politely, awful. What started as ‘just’ an irritating swirling wind turned into random torrential storms, with the track resembling a pond at times. As such, performances in some events were nowhere representative of our athletes’ full potential, and positions were more than ever the thing to concentrate on.

Lily B Match day 2 – Croydon

04th June 2016

It was always going to be difficult to match our performance of the first Lily B meeting of the season. However, despite notable absentees due to half-term and exams, we were only narrowly denied victory by 5 points!!!


The weather was warm but overcast. The first part of the battle was to fight through the traffic to get the track on time. This time around we only had 30 point scoring athletes compared to the massive team of 39 we had for our first match at Kingsmeadow. Given this fact, coming second was pretty amazing, so well done to everyone.

Good 2nd place for U13/U15 YDL team


Bolstered by the away win in Guildford, our U13/U15 YDL team went into the home match with high hopes. Unfortunately, the team was already weakened by a clash with a major schools’ competition. Bad luck on the day in some of our strongest events cost us further points, and half way through the match we were down in 4th place. Yet, a remarkable fight back from the athletes and the commitment of many helpers to work as our officials got the team back into a well-deserved 2nd place.
