On a very pleasant evening at rural Ewell,both our Mens & Womens teams performed up to expectations but were no match for the hosts.In the Womens,Joan Trimble,Jane Searle,Nicki Murphy & Nicky Atkins improved their own Club vets 4 x 400 record to 5.00.7,with Camilla T(3 inc LJ!!) & Nicki M(2) contributing wins to our 3rd place.
Scores-E&E 123,Croydon 99,K&P 69,DMV 54 etc and overall,at the halfway stage,E&E 16,CRoydon 14,DMV 11(147),K&P11(136) etc. On the mens,we welcomed back John Ratcliff after a long competitive absence to augment an extensive response to Mike's exhortations.We did not actually have any winners pointswise but everyone was a winner! Horace Nelson & Les Hatton(JT), Roger Bartlett(DT) & your scribe(200) scored 7 and Pat Logan & Maurice Joyce ploughed round 3000 and,subject to checking,we were 2nd= on the night. Scores-E&E 135,Croydon/K&P 105 each,DMV 100 etc and overall-E&E 16,Croydon 13.5,K&P 11.5,DMV/Crawley 9 etc.
