New EA Guidance – Seniors Take Note

Hi all. Updated RA guidance.


❗Seniors, please note: Over 18s living in Tier 3 cannot travel to another Tier 3 to train or compete (unless for individual training – so if a senior is training alone, they can cross to another Tier 3.) Over 18s who are disabled and coaches can cross to another Tier 3, inline with rules for u18s.

For U18s, training is the same as before Lockdown 2.

Matt Stenson

To all of you involved in DIY…

Matt is a well respected and long standing member of the Senior men’s squad. Yesterday, he was doing some DIY work at his house, which involved being up a ladder. Very unfortunately, he fell and ended up in Heartlands Hospital with 3 broken ribs, 3 fractured vertebrae and damage to pneumothorax. The things people will do to avoid cross country running!

We all wish Matt a very speedy recovery.

Weekend Roundup

British Champs Manchester:

Nicholas Pryce put in a great run in the televised heats of the 200m to finish in 4th place with a time of 21.74 into a negative head wind of minus 0.9. This is his best legal outdoor time for the year but not quite good enough to qualify for the final. Incidentally on July 1st he was voted Scholar of the Year at Staffordshire University for his athletic achievements. Well done Nicholas.

Masters Meeting at Nuneaton:

Two new Club records were set at this meeting both of which are very close to the British Records.
Janice Pryce set a new W60 Club record in the Triple Jump with 8.83m. (The British record is 9.09m) . She also recorded 16.41 in the 100m . This was Janice’s first meeting of 2020.
Kevin Brown threw the 1.5Kg Discus 48.74m which is a new M55 Club record beating his old record of 41.93m and is also superior to his M50 Club record of 47.76m. It is also very close to the British record of 50.15m set in 2003.
Lorna Foster (W55) threw the 3Kg Hammer 30.41m for a Seasons best . On checking this result I have found the Lorna set a new CLUB record on the 21st Sept 2019 at Sheffield of  33.20m. Additionally at Nuneaton Lorna recorded 24.57m in the 1 Kg Discus and 8.13m in the 3Kg Shot.
Well done to Janice ,Kevin and Lorna.

Trafford Meeting:

Frederic Tremblay (M40) set a Seasons best in the 800m with 2.01.90.  Well done Frederic. 

A great weekend for our athletes.
All the best. John T
