Since June 30th Andy’s done Wimbledon, Chris has won the Tour, the football has been forgotten, England and Pakistan are still ‘batting’ it out ….. and K&P have been Clubmark Accredited!

On Thursday 30th June we were assessed by England Athletics on our training programmes, risk assessments, health and safety policies, training and child protection policies, our equity in member recruitment and the general running of our organisation. We passed all of that with flying colours. Thanks to our Welfare Officers-Gillian and Cashel also Susan, Beverley, Les and the many other committee and non-committee members who played their part on the night and for many months beforehand.

What this means is that we have a nationally recognised award for OUR sports club.

Lily B Match day 3 – Guildford

02nd July 2016


So to our third and final Lily B league match of the season and nothing else but a win could guarantee us the

league win. In the week following up to the match we had a number of withdrawals due to injuries and other

reasons. This meant that those who came had to push hard and in some case compete in events they weren’t

used to, in order to keep the points coming in. However, despite notable absentees, we won the match by a

reasonable margin of 20 points!!!

The weather was fairly warm but interjected with major downpours. This was our lowest turnout with only had

26 point scoring athletes compared to the massive team of 39 we had for our first match at Kingsmeadow. This

just shows the effort that the athletes put in.

The final SCVAL meeting was on Monday 11th July hosted by Croydon Harriers / Striders of Croydon. The afternoon consisted of heavy downpours and another damp evening of competing was expected. Fortunately the rain held off until the competition was almost over.


There was only four ladies in the K&P ladies team, all of us helping to scoop up the points by doing multi-events. Susanne Dietrich – 100m, 2000m walk, discus, triple jump, javelin, high jump and 4th leg in the 4 x 100m relay. Susanne also felt unwell on the day and unfortunately suffered an injury during the walk but still carried on. Liz Richardson – 400m, 1500m, high jump and 2nd leg in the 4 x 100m relay. Liz had also ran 800m & 1500m in the Rosenheim league the previous Wednesday and 5000m, 1500m, 1500m S/C and a leg in the 4 x 400m at the SAL on the Saturday. Caroline Jeffcote – 100m, 400m, 1500m and 1st leg of the 4 x 100m relay. Nicky Atkins – 100m,2000m walk, 400m, 1500m and 3rd leg in the 4 x 100m relay. I must mention that this was an evening meeting and all of the events took place from 6.30pm field / 7.10pm track to 8.45pm relay, resulting in very little recovery time between each event.
