IMG_6354Here’s John’s match report following a great day at Solihull on Sunday for our senior team:

Hi Everyone, Please find the provisional results of yesterdays meeting. RESULTS – MATCH 4  You will see we won the meeting by the smallest of margins so I am delighted that I was able to persuade several of you to fill in events where we had gaps.

If you remained to see the last event (the Mens 4x400m) I am sure you were enthralled by the running of the last leg by Nick Pryce. Wow!!! I cannot recall ever being more excited when watching an event in this League before. He made up a very large deficit going from 5th to 2nd and ran his leg in 47.0secs . I have never seen him so exhausted after a run. What a way to finish the League for this year.
Thanks to all your efforts – athletes, officials, coaches, parents and supporters. We have avoided relegation and discovered some new talent and I look forward to 2016 with excitement.
As a result of everyones great performances yesterday there were many pbs and six new club records. Wow!!!
  • Sherri Smart – Senior Women Hammer (4K) 30.16 beats Sharon Ralph’s record of 25.08 set in 2009. This was also Sherri’s first competition.
  • Liam Goodall Under 17 Hammer (7.26K) 35.83 beats his own record of 33.02 set this year.
  • Andrea Deathridge W40 1500m 5.15.0 beats Rita Hinds record of 5.17.9 set in 1986. Rita and I were part of the same training group.
  • Sharon Ralph W35 Triple Jump 8.01 beats Mel Woodward’s record of 7.29 set this year.
  • Sharon Ralph W35 High Jump 1.30 beats Sandra McDonald’s record of 1.28 set in 1997
  • Nick Corker M40 3000m Sch 10.20 beats his own record of 10.36.6 set earlier this year.
All the best .  John T
