Stand-In TM,Frank Schubert's report from Sutton Arena. Full results on Noticeboard at Kingsmeadow.
For the last Ebbisham match, the clash with the London Youth Games, where several of our athletes were in action, and other commitments reduced our scoring numbers quite a bit. Yet, the three U13s and six U15s did very well, achieving one PB after the other. In the end, the team remarkably held on to third place on the day.

For the U11s, Gian Hobbs and Nicholas Rilett made their debut for the Club, both with very promising performances. Gian ran a strong 75m (12.2s), but his highlight was his 2nd place over the 150m in 23.9s. Nicholas did well in the sprints (75m 12.5s, 150m 24.7s), but probably enjoyed the 600m even more, where he finished a very good 4th in 2:06.3. Rory Vassall this time shone in the sprint, clocking the fastest time of our boys with a new PB of 12.0s in the 75m race, and still achieved 6th place in the 600m race. Harry Robinson produced another very fast 600m run, running to 2nd place with a time just a fraction over his PB. On the other side of the non-scorers, Ali Kokaz (100m), Frank Johnson (200m) and George Corcoran (1500m) had very good runs against strong competitions, the high point being Ali’s win of the 100m with new PB of 11.5s.
Our U13s made up in spirit what the team lacked in numbers. Isaac Henriquez not only made it to the top of the U13 Club rankings with his first competitive Discus throw (9.98m), but also got new PB’s in Javelin (17.86m) and 200m (31.9s). Tim Robinson in his second outing improved his 100m PB (16.7s) and also got further in the Long Jump (3.26m) than he had anticipated. Nick Osman had a fantastic day with new PB’s in all three events: 100m (14.3s), 200m (30.8s, improved by 1 second), and Long Jump (3.77m). An excellent performance by our U13 team!
The U15s boosted the point score further with a number of top placements. The best result came in the Triple Jump, won by James Khan (10.34m) and Aidan Fahey (10.29m) with new PB’s. Ashley Leach came 2nd in the High Jump with new PB (1.41m), while James Khan despite injury clinched 1st place in the B string (1.30m). Matthew Stevens with another solid performance got 2nd place in the Javelin B string (17.91m), adding to his 4th place in Shot Putt (7.03m). Nikolaj Schubert won 3rd place in Javelin with a massively improved PB (18.31m) and 1st B string in the 800m (2:35.0). Further on the track, Ashley Leach shot up the Club rankings in the 800m with a new PB of 2:24.4. Sam Vassall came 3rd in the 1500m (5:05.3) and also hugely improved his PB for 100m (14.2s). Aidan Fahey again improved his PB for 100m (12.6s) and also ran to 3rd place in the 200m (26.4s). Plenty of PB’s and many good results - well done!
Many thanks to Brenda Ford, Susanne Dietrich and Sharon Henriquez, who officiated in track and field, and to Gill Broderick who helped our U11s to find their way in their first match.
This was the last match in the 2009 Ebbisham League. The result on the day sealed third place overall for the K&P team. League winners for this year, despite their defeat on Sunday, were Croydon, while Guildford & Godalming just managed to leapfrog us to clinch second place. Holders Herne Hill finished well behind us in fourth, while Wimbledon and Aldershot, Farnham & District were relegated to Division 2. Sutton and Dorking & Mole Valley move up.
