After winning the Lily B League two weeks ago, it was time to re-group for the final team event of the 2014 Athletics calendar.  There was a very good turnout with 39 K&P athletes in the team competing for the cup.  Through the earlier events of the summer we knew it would be a tough ask to win the cup as we were competing against the likes of Croydon Harriers, Herne Hill Harriers and Guildford & Godalming AC.

With lots of girls away on holiday and only 6 U17’s we were worried it would be a struggle to beat Croydon to win the league title for the second year in a row.

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.

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!

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.
