Beckenham Place Park Jan 13th 2018


It was a most inauspicious first visit to this attractive Beckenham course for Matt Hyett’s Men’s CC squad. Only half of our 20-odd team members signalled their intention to travel and even fewer actually made the start line. This has left us with an unenviable task at the final fixture at Lloyd Park,Croydon on February 10th,and the team are now faced with a very similar situation going into Round 4 as we were last season.

Only 9 runners(one short of a quorum),one of whom was delayed at work and missed the start,completed,and we suffered the inevitable penalties. After commencing the day in a fairly comfortable position,we have now plummeted into a battle to avoid relegation,as in 2016/17. WE NEED TO DO THE BUSINESS AGAIN,AS WE DID THEN! Whilst Dorking MV are adrift in 9th,there are 3 teams,with a mere 23 points between them,including K&P,and we will have to pull out all the stops to avoid the drop to Div 3.

A Christmas Message Print

I would like to thank all those associated with the Club for all their hard efforts over the past twelve months. It has been a successful year and I hope that this will continue in 2018. Our athletes have performed excellently, but this could not happen without the backing of our Committee, Coaches and Officials, not forgetting the family members that help out and support our teams. As President I really appreciate all that you do for the Club.

Can I finish by wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and successful New Year. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible during the season, but especially at our AGM in February.

Best Wishes

David Hillyer

Mike (Mick) Potter 16.12.1937 - 28.10.2017 Print

Mick Potter 16.12.1937 – 28.10.2017


Mick Potter’s sad death on October 28th 2017 at the age of 79 brought back striking historical memories of an earlier Polytechnic Harriers age, and, indeed, of a different social era, as well. Tony Burgess (10.8/21.9*/48.4*) and Mick Potter (9.9y/21.9*/47.8*) were part and parcel of our sport at the higher levels in the 1950s/1960s and, with the kind permission of Tony, who delivered the Eulogy at Mick’s funeral in Brighton on November 14th, we reproduce excerpts here, highlighting the flavour and ethos of Athletics in those past decades. Their best performances can be seen on this site on the Club All-Time Lists via the Main Menu.
