The veiled threats,the 'spin' worthy of Alistair Campbell and the orwellian,totalitarian nature of UKA's Competition Structure plans and questionnaire failed to impress the K&P General Committee on Monday night.For the most part but by no means completely,the plans were rejected.

If you are a visitor to our website from another club/organisation in athletics,you are urged to find out whether your committee has seriously addressed these matters -  before it is too late.The non-completion and return of the questionnaire will be undoubtably assumed by UKA to be agreement with the proposals - you have been warned!

As forecast - and you read it first here! - Swindon,with Adrian Hemery in full flow, and Southend,continuing a roll started when winning the SML Division Three title in 1999, were the two teams who made it into Division Four of the BAL for 2005.They now join K&P,Norwich,Derby,Team Solent,Medway & Maidstone and Swansea for next summer's campaign. Scores: Swindon 389,Southend 373,Leeds 293,Highgate 287.5,Bolton 283,Winchester 230.5,Yeovil 224,Deeside 116. With the exception of Medway,all the teams in Division Four next summer have promoted BAL matches either in 2003 or 2004 so the 2005 venues will be reasonably familiar,if nothing else.

Along with co-hosts,Epsom & Ewell,Michele Wicks' squad completed their 2004 season with a resounding victory but finished in 9th place overall,some 50 points short of promotion to Division One.

Once Rachel Burbridge & Charlie Gale had grabbed maximum points in the opening track event,the 400 hurdles,K&P were always in the box seat,and were comfortable winners from local rivals,Walton. Almost customary multiple wins for Dominique Blaize(100H/HJ/LJ),Sasha Gordon(LJ & TJ),Camilla Thrush(DT/JT/HT) and,most pleasingly recently,Jenny Davies(SP/DT) ensured a regular flow of points from the senior section;the senior middle-distance squad again loyally spread themselves around,not least mesdames Nicky Atkins, Rachel Burbridge & Liz Richardson; Sarah Harris & Dani Ayres mirrored that in the U17 hurdles events and the 4 x 100 also had an easy win.In the U15 group,Roseanne Mackay & Harriet Lester were 5-pointers and,again,the sprint relay emulated their older colleagues. Final scores were:K&P 211/Walton 188/Swindon 146/Luton 129/Barnet 109 and the final league table saw us comfortably in upper mid-table with 1076 points.
