Have a go in September comps!

After a quiet period in the August holiday period, the track and field competition season picks up again with the Trafford Medal meeting on August Bank Holiday Monday (25th). September is busy, with the two traditional Blackpool Wyre & Fylde Open Meetings, and Wakefield's popular Sptember Medal Meeting.

Let's see more of our young athletes joining Gina, Tom and co and having a go in some of these comps. Your coahces will be able to advise on which events to enter, costs, transport etc, and give you the entry forms. See Ian, Janet, Steve or Tim at training or give them a ring.

Fun in the sun at Barnsley

Our young athletes were in great form at the recent Young Athletes Open Meeting at a sun-drenched Barnsley AC.

A five-strong team included debutant Liam Knox, who finished 2rd in his long jump and performed very well in both the 200 and 800. Tom Kramer recorded a PB of 27.3 in his 200, whilst Jack Walsh also PB'd in a strong 800 race with a time of 2.29. Naomi Richardson reached the semi-finals of the 100 and performed well in both the long jump and 800. Team captain Gina Thornton continued her good form with 2nd in the 800 in a time of 2.31.

Well done to all our athletes.
