Not sure there is anything printable that can be said.
It would be better/nice/sensible if someone were to offer to do some work encouraging(coercing) some attendance at the SML matches this(or indeed any) summer.
I would have thought one official(Maurice Joyce) and 2 athletes(Jason Bernard & Rob Smith) would be embarrasing enough for some of you to do something about it.
Even those unable to travel to BAL matches,could at least make an effort to compete(even non-scorers are welcome) - this sort of turnout will,eventually,scupper the first team.
However,Rob won the A Hammer at 39.72 and threw a PB shot at 10.29,whilst Jason clocked 52.3 over 400 for a further improvement. So good for them.
The scorelines tell their own story - E Grinstead 177/Crawley 163/Fleet &C 158/Horsham BS 137/Poole R 122/Bracknell 58/K&P 18.
We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.
Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
We cater for runners, jumpers, throwers and multi-eventers on the track, in the field, on the roads or over the country and are based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston-upon-Thames (KT1 3PB). We'll be very happy to help you with your sport – so please just get in touch and we'll do all we can to assist.
