This year's Finals were held in gloriously warm conditions at Kingsmeadow and the K&P squad collected the expected Plate Trophy.Having won the overall Cup in 2003,early season turnouts were not great and we missed the Final qualifying by a few match points. Our U15 'stars' were again generally far too strong for the opposition and the U17 turnout was low,allowing our small contingent to mop up good points.Yet again and,sadly,for the last time,Dominique Blaize won maximum points - over the years,she has scored an enormous number of points but,just as important,has used the competition sensibly and has now developed into a class athlete in her own right. We wish her well as she,hopefully,moves on to greater things and builds on the international status she has achieved this summer. Sadly,also moving on is her mother,Clare,who has been Team manager for almost as long as Dominique has been in the team - she has overseen the winning of several trophies for which we are all extremely grateful - so who's going to follow in her footsteps,then???? Most promising mark of the day was probably Jenny Davies' further improvement in the Discus to 29m83 and it is hoped her recent county vest and steady progress will encourage her to use the winter months to enhance her skills ready for an even better 2005.Plate results;K&P 288.5,DMV 244,RSB 129,F&C 121.5,HW 89. The Cup was won by Bracknell.
