There was a surprise package at the Final - and it was Herne Hill(the favourites) & K&P(the holders) who caught it!! A resurgent Hercules Wimbledon,quite unexpectedly,fielded a stronger team than even their team manager expected and they finished strongly to win by a clear 8 points. We performed well enough with wins for Nic Owen(SP 14.49),Victor Nwagbara(100 11.2) & Sean Kelly(400 51.1) and there were splendid personal bests for both our U20 competitors - Humphrey Waddington & Michael Huntley. The former took three excellent 2nds(pbs in the HJ at 1.70 and TJ 12.85 and a near pb in the 400H - 60.7) whilst Michael reached his season's target by taking several seconds off his previous 800 to clock 2.09.8. With both these two,plus fellow U20 Craig Price,now eligible for the Surrey CC League Senior race,our return to Division 2 in the winter will be well bolstered.Final scores; HW 83,K&P 76,HHH 70,R&T 56,Serpentine 52,Croydon 50 & BA 11.
