The 4th match of the series was set to be hosted at the home ground of Kingsmeadow, giving a great opportunity for Kingston athletes to get a local race in with a highly supportive environment. Holidays and unavailability somewhat plagued the official and team sheets, but no matter Kingston pulled through with a competitive team and excellent team of officials to help run the match as smoothly as possible. Many thanks to all the officials and volunteers who helped on the day, without your help this match simply would not have run – I won’t name them out of fear of missing someone out but thank you.

Anyway… the results:

Women’s team


We had some excellent performances in the sprints; Lucy Atkins and Katy Lord winning both the 100m and 200m. In the 400m, Imogen Busa and Emilia Chittenden both picked up PBs (62.6 and 66.9 respectively). Emilia also got a PB win in the 800m alongside Isabella Sheperd-Evans, who also picked up a PB. Also, congratulations to team manager Izzy Hatton for a huge PB in the 1500m, knocking 39 seconds off her previous PB – 7:01 from 7:40! An inspiration to us all.

Arriving at the Guildford track in wet conditions was not ideal after the sunshine we have become used to. We had to wait well into the afternoon for the sunshine we had ordered to emerge! It was an uphill struggle for the 3rd Lily B match as we were missing athletes as well as graded officials. Both team managers had to double up as officials for the high jump, as well as trying to manage the team. This meant we had to leave the base for quite a while and hoped everyone knew what they were doing, not really ideal and an issue that needs to be addressed.

 

We would like to thank all of the parents who stepped in to help as officials – this was a great help and we really hope that some parents will consider going on the officials course. Special thanks to Bryony again for helping with the warm ups. 

 

Kingston & Poly came 3rd overall in this match, which is a good result, especially considering that we had a lower turnout than usual and weren't able to fill all of the events. However, we were 137 points behind the home team and 46 points behind Croydon AC on the day, so we will need all hands and feet on deck for the Lily B final to be a success at home at Kingsmeadow.

British Athletics League Division 2, Match 2

Kingston, 6thJuly 2019

 

The second match of Kingston and Poly’s British Athletics League season was a home one, at a sunny and warm Kingsmeadow, which has proven to be a lucky charm in recent years. Following the Chelmsford match in which we were pipped to 3rdat the last by the smallest of margins, the team were looking to come back with a bang, and where better than at the familiar surroundings of the Weir Archer Centre?

It appears to be customary now for the BAL to take place on the sunniest of days, and this was no exception. What is increasingly becoming an unwelcome one, however, is a horrible headwind on the home straight, which is something that our sprinters had to contend with today. Nevertheless, sunglasses, caps and shorts were in abundance on a wonderfully bright day.

Unfortunately our 3rd match, 10th June, at Walton Athletic Hub was cancelled due to very heavy rain.

 

The ladies 4th and final match was on 8th July at Croydon Sports Arena where a small team of K&P athletes competed to finish 3rd place to Epsom and Ewell Harriers and Wimbledon Hercules.

 

Every member of the team worked hard to bring in the points competing in several events:

 

Nicky Atkins: 100m, 2000m walk, 400m, 1 mile, 100m relay

Caroline Jeffcote: 100m, 1 mile

Susanne Dietrich: 100m, 400m, 100m relay, Discus, Triple Jump, Javelin

Liz Richardson: 2000m walk, 400m, 1 mile, 100m relay, High Jump

Nicki Murphy: 100m relay, Discus, Triple jump, Javelin

 

Sadly Nicki Murphy missed out on running the 400m and jumping in the high jump due to the over running of another field event.

 

Liz and Nicky walked in the 2000m walk and could have crossed the line hand in hand as we were both awarded the same time!

 

After the three matches I also believe that we finished 3rd overall but I haven’t received any information confirming this.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the athletes who ran, walked, threw and jumped and to all the officials and volunteers who made the SCVAC possible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 
UAG YDL match 3 Kingston 30 June 2019 Print

After coming in last place in our first 2 matches, we were hoping to bring some home advantage with our 3rd match at Kingsmeadow.  This time round we had a much better turnout with 36 K&P athletes.  Still with the larger team we struggled to fill some of the events, notably the longer distance runs and many of the U20M Jumps and throws.  That said we had a much improved day finishing in 3rd place. Notable events of the day were the AAA Grade 1 performance by Lucy Tunnacliffe in the Long Jump (5.63m) and the amazing 4x400m U17m relay team taking 9 seconds off the 30 year old club record with 3:35.1 (2019) – Thomas White, George Rees, Olly Wilson and Jack Dickson (Previous was 3:44.1 in 1989).  There were a few other PBs on the day, please look at the full results on the Power of 10 (link provided below). The final match is at Brighton’s Withdean on 28th July. It’s a great track protected from headwinds and can provide good conditions for PBs!! We want a big push to get another big team out, fill even more events in track and field, and go for a higher finish.  If you are available but need a lift, please let us know and we will sort something out.

Please take a look at the great photos from the day at the end of this report curtesy of Hannah Lester (to follow shortly).
