The team again claimed a comfortable 2nd place behind Epsom & Ewell and are on course for a return to Division One but,though the turnout was just short of the 50 mark,one hopes for a marked increase in numbers for a home match. Sadly,though there were some 20 'new faces' from the Perivale match,a near-identical number(20 plus,mostly boys) failed to appear. Perhaps we should try and be charitable and put it down to exam revision.
On the girls side,there were winning A string performances from Harriet Lester(U15 LJ 4.62/75H 12.4),Phoebe Haynes(U13 70H 12.7 - a chunk off her pb),Mary Iheke(U15 300 42.4 which won her the Match Award for track),& Jenny Davies(U17 DT 23.54),whilst Roseanne Mackay,Emily Kneebone,Amy Simmons,Lucy Jones,Jenny Steinitz,Alberta Skinner & Natalie Olivo all picked maximum B string points.The U15 sprint relay squad were only 0.2 outside the existing club record with their 52.9.
On the boys side,A string maxis came from Jan-Dominik Vogel(U15 PV 2.20 & HJ 1.40),Matthew Field(U17 SP 11.68 & HJ 1.65),Chris Hall(U17 LJ 5.71) & newcomer Callum Burke(U15 JT 33.20) with full-point B string points being collected by Tim Sagar(back after a long injury),Andrew Chan,Alain Ashford,Jasper Skinner & William Trimble.
