id729-SVL SWLondonDiv M2 Croydon May 19th 2008 Report

Written by DB   

The traverse across South London mirrored its recent low appeal,though the few that did travel made a decent fist of the matches.The 4 ladies shone brighter than the dozen men.

Nicki Murphy & Susanne Dietrich worked their ways through the track card,trebling competitively at 200/800/3000 and picking up the bulk of our night's points,with Nicki adding the Long Jump,whilst Clare Nelson took near-maximums from the field(SP/PV/JT).The only win of the evening,though,came from Joan Trimble(31.1) in the W50 200.

We were 3rd on the day and we remain 2nd overall behind Epsom & Ewell.Full results on the NB at K.

The Men missed several leading performers and had some inevitable gaps on the track,but the field team 'played well' in contrast.Andy Arbour(M35 3k) & Chuck Isetts(M60 200) both took 2nds,with John Simmons & Frank Schubert busy;in the field,both Geoff van Klaveren(M35 JT 34.19) & Maurice Joyce(M60 PV 2.30) scored full wack,with Graham Huntley,Rob Lowe & John Simmons also significantly troubling the scorers.

We finished 4th,and narrowly hold 3rd overall. Again,results on our Kingsmeadow NB.
