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.

K&P win at Kingsmeadow to top UAG YDL group

K&P’s U17 and U20 athletes put in a great performance at Kingsmeadow on 29th May to win the UAG YDL match and leave the team topping the league division South/West 1A by 3 points. If we can keep this going over the next two matches, K&P will be in the paper match with the winners of S/W 1B and N/E 1 for promotion to Southern Premier League 2. We have the athletes to compete at this level so we really hope to get a good turn-out for match 3 in Woking on 26th June. A big hand should also go to all those helping officiate on the day which made sure we got the full 55 officials points – something only 4 out of the 7 teams competing managed.

Veterans League 13 June Wimbledon Park - men's report

A frustrating result at this match where we missed 3rd place on the night by half a point, and sank to 3rd overall in the division. We need a reasonable turnout at the final match to hold onto that place (or improve if Hercules Wimbledon or Epsom stumble).

On the track we had one win (Matt Atkins in the 5000m) and some second places (Draco Mkpa (m45) in the m35 200m and David Bell in the m50 2000m Walk, plus the 4 X 200 relay (Draco, Mark Roberts, Cameron Barlow and Andy Gordon - afraid I can't remember running order).
Otherwise it was multitasking point gathering by Cameron (200 and 800), Graham Huntley (welcome back - in 200m and 5000m), Mike May (walk, 800 and 200 in that order), and David Barrington (800m and m70 Javelin and m60 discus)

We were rescued by the field events where Mark Roberts and Chris Smale both won their Discus events, while Mark also came 2nd in both High Jump and Javelin. Mike Darcey making his debut in the league got second in the triple jump, and joint 3rd in the High Jump, and Frank Schubert and Rob Lowe got third each in their respective M50 triple jump and Javelin.

Website Notification of Clubmark assessment

Clubmark Assessment: June 30th

A few years ago the Club made a decision that they would apply for England Athletics Clubmark Accreditation. ‘Clubmark’ forms part of the only national cross sports quality accreditation scheme. It is built around a set of core criteria which ensure that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards. We wanted to prove that we have a club that is nationally recognised as providing an ‘active, accessible and accredited’ environment for our members.
