British Athletics League Division 2, Match 4

Bath, August 9th 2014

Kingston & Poly’s Men finished our outstanding 2014 season in Bath, where strong winds and torrential rain failed to dampen spirits, but our unprecedented promotion push finally ran out of steam. The run-up to the match had already seen our expectations fall, as a late rescore of the PV at Derby saw our 2nd place finish there get revised down to 3rd by only 1 point behind 2nd placed Notts AC. This meant that we now not only needed to beat Basingstoke, but also needed another club to come between us, and them, if we were to win promotion. In the end it all proved academic, as Basingstoke fielded their strongest team to win the match and our lack of depth on the track saw us slip back to 7th place, once again narrowly losing out to Notts, this time apparently by only 0.7 of a point!

On a good evening at Wimbledon Park on 14 July we finished 3rd in the match which means we finish the season in 3rd in the SW London division. We covered every event except the m60 discus, where the athlete was caught out by the closure of Putney Bridge that day. The team manager also made the mistake of only putting Mark Reed (making his season's debut in the league) to score in one event and choosing the wrong one. He did ok in the m40 800, but running as a non scorer won the 5000! It made no difference to our final finishing position however.

Other commitments and injuries meant that there was a team of five women for the final SCVAC at Wimbledon Park Athletics track last Monday evening. However, with the team participating in several events we gallantly finished 2nd place on the night to Epsom and Ewell Harriers. Both Nicki Murphy & Susanne Dietrich (both multi-event athletes) covered five events each, plus the 4 x 200m relay. In fact Susanne agreed to compete at short notice having been injured all season.

Four K&P members ran in the Elmbridge 10km on Sunday 20th July. The course was flat and was run mainly on  gravel along the towpath in cloudy, calm but humid conditions. I am pleased to announce that Molly Renfer was 3rd senior lady  37.34. This was her first 10km.  I finished a disappointing for me 47.26, David Greenfield 49.57,  and Mike Edwards first 10km 59.55.


Caroline Jeffcote, returning from injury ran in the National Lottery Anniversary run an finished roughly, Caroline quotes in 52.20 which she is pleased about.

A completed team sheet with 100% attendance on the day helped the Kingston and Poly team secure a fantastic win over all the clubs!  The weather was breezy but fine for the day and athletes went out of their comfort zone to fill the much needed gaps to earn us big points.  Both our U13 and U15 team won their own age group and when the points were added together we were clear winners.   While watching the athletics on the day we could all sense a feeling that we were doing well despite no match scores were giving out!
