&P’s final SCVAC meeting was on Monday 13th July at Croydon Arena. The weather remained dry until the close of the meeting despite a strong wind down the home straight. I am glad to say that again the ladies team worked well together to fill as many events  as possible and in doing so was rewarded by another excellent 2nd place finish to Epsom & Ewell Harriers.

A good turnout and lots of mucking in by all concerned ensured we covered all but one event and came a comfortable third in the match and secured third place in the division for the season.

We had only three scoring wins (Adam Bellis in the 100 and 400 - also did m35 Javelin and was in 4 x 100 relay - and Renzo di Libero in the m50 shot), but Matt Hyatt (who scored in the m35 2000m walk) front ran the non scoring 1500 and held on to win.

However we got a lot of 2nd places (Mike May m50 100m - also did 400m and Long Jump - Chuck Isetts m60 100  - Geoff Reed m70 1500m - and David Barrington m70 Long Jump and m60 High Jump). Other multi eventers were Ollie Oladele (400, High Jump and Relay), Frank Schubert (High Jump and Long Jump), Andy Arbour (1500 and Shot) and Ed Paxton (non scoring 100 and relay), while Cashel Riordan (2000m walk, returning from injury) , Graham Huntley (3rd in the m60 javelin) and David Greenfield (1500) rounded off the team.

Well done all

Our U13 and U15 Boys’ Athletic teams surpassed my already high expectation to win as they stormed home with 176 points with both U13 and U15 winning their respective age group. Team Result: 1st K&P 176, 2nd Herne Hill 155, 3rd Dorking Mole Valley 125, 4th = Croydon, Walton 120, Epsom & Ewell 53. The final match on Sunday was exhilarating and thrilling with K&P taking a high percentage of double A & B wins. From the first event of track hurdles and Triple jump, we deservedly took our lead and were never caught, albeit Herne Hill were only about 9 points behind two third of the way through, before 200m, 1500m, discus, 300m and relays were added. We had U13s Michael Webb-Bourne and Theo McChesney (from Kestrels’ group) stepping up to hurdle for the first time and filling in the 1500m B gap was Sebastian even though he had an injury in his thigh. This showed the spirit and the future champions of Kingston.

After great first match-day win it was always going to be difficult to match those heights and with many athletes out (hockey & netball trials, injuries and also the YDL the following day) those who made it, to Walton, did their best to fill in events and help out the team.
