Under 15 Jack Westley and under 20 William Gwynne represented Surrey in the SEAA  Intercounties Meeting on a very rainy day last Sunday at the Allianz Stadium (Barnet Coptall). They both did well in very difficult conditions in the pole vault.

In their different age competitions, Jack came 2nd with a new pub of 3m and Will was 5th, equalling his PB with 3.80m. I think they could improve on these heights soon, maybe at a big pole vault event on 20th September.

Great weekend for female athletes Nicole Kendall and Pippa Wingate gaining PB's in their individual events.

Nicole ran a PB of 54.83 breaking the 55 second barrier for the first time in Antwerp (Belgium).  Which ranks her 7th in the U20 age group and 38th in the UK 2015 rankings.

Pippa threw a huge PB in the Hammer of 58.69m on her last throw of the season which places her 13th in the UK and moves her to 26th on the UK all time list.

Other great successes this season have come from European Junior Team selections for Phoebe Law and Nicole Kendall and rankings in Senior lists are: Mary Iheke, Mae Thompson, Chris Dack and William Trimble.

The future is also looking positive with great successes at the English Schools, YDL leagues and Ebbisham.  The Lily B team have won the league and are fighting fit for the Final match this weekend so please come down and support our final home match of the season

Four Club Records and a 5th Place for U13/U15 YDL Print

The K&P U13/U15 YDL went into the last match in 4th place overall, but shortages in nearly all age groups reduced our chances of a top half finish. Rather surprisingly, the first announced score placed us 3rd, but thereafter we quickly dropped to 5th place. Top performances by our U13 boys’ team, including three club records for Thomas White (200m), Olly Wilson (1500m) and the 4x100m relay team, and a stunning win for our U15 girls’ 4x300m relay with new club record were enough to hold off hosts Thames Valley Harriers, but overall we had too many gaps to threaten our main competitors Hillingdon and Camberley this time

I'm pleased and proud to announce that K&P have won all three Rosenheim titles: Western Mens, Western Womens and the Final!

I would like to thank everyone who helped along the way. Be it athletes, coaches, officials or athlete transport (mums and dads), everybody showed great commitment with many stepping into events that may not have been their 1st choice, 2nd choice or 5-6th choice but ground out the all important points for the team. True team spirit!

I would also like to remind you that the season isn't over with still a massively important final SAL fixture this Saturday at Kingsmeadow. By winning this fixture, we'll also take the southern league title. The SAL team managers are short of athletes, especially girls, so if you can help out email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or visit

Great work and lets retain these next season!

World Masters update - Lyon Print

On day 2, Mark Roberts came 5th out of over 50 starters in the m45 decathlon
picking up several season's bests in his international debut at the world masters athletics champs.

In the 100m on days 3 and 4

m50 Mike May got a season's best of 14.35 in the first round (best since 2011), but was never going to progress as there were 14 heats trying to find only 24 semi finalists

W60 Joan Trimble progressed from the first round to the semi final and then to the final before coming a magnificent 4th. Her best time of 14.78 came in the semi final.

Camilla Thrush is competing out here and did the weight throw at the stadium where Mark did his decathlon on day 1.

Chuck Isetts has travelled here but an injury to his knee three weeks ago had not cleared up enough for him to race in the individual events.

Joan and Mike go in the 200m on Sunday 9th and Mike will go in the Long Jump qualifying on Wednesday 12th.
