Warm and blustery weather greeted the boys at the Epsom and Ewell track.  We were armed with strong , FULL U15 team and U13 team of 7 for the second DIV 1 match. The standard in this match is extremely high, the talent from other clubs is phenomenal for this age group but our boys performed with resilience and just got on with what that had to do.

U11s Thomas Perrin, Samuel James, Adam Claudet  (non scoring events). U13s Sam Bishop, Jacob Landau, Angus Strachan, Nico Clarke, Harry Walker, Louis Churchill, Oliver (Ollie) Cooke. U15s Albert Rowland, Jack Le Vesconte, Roel Sodusta, Ethan Chandler, Sam Nesbitt, Dhruv Simmonite, Tom Wilson, Charlie White, Eternal Nemiala, Oliver Palmer, Finnian Chang, Alfie Westley.

U11s – Adam ran a 600m in 1.54.2 – a new PB.  He ran from the front and kept the distance between him and the field.   Thomas ran a good 600m and Samuel in the 75m was quick.    All three are moving up to U13s next year and this will compliment the team well for 2020. U13s:  Angus ran a PB in the 100m and 200m in 13.8. and 28.6. With a god LJ 3.97 (winning jump 4.49m!) Sam in the hurdles clocked 16.0 secs an improvement by 0.5 secs. Harry’s first season in the 1500m ran 5.08.9 and the lone Kingston representative like Ollie in the 800m in 2.31.2. Ollie high jumped impressively to 1.35m with great backup from Sam – 1.15m. Nico ran an excellent 200m and LJ 3.71. Our field event athlete, Louis, threw 21.59m in JT and 13.97m in DT. Sam was busy again backing up Louis in the javelin and threw 17.92m. Relay squad ran well for 3rd place – photo finish on the line with Epsom but the Kingston team were given the 3rd place.   U15s: Albert and Jack covered the 80m hds and both ran slightly faster than before. Albert then long jumped in a close competition for 3rd-6th position, with 4.43m. Finnian backed him up with a creditable 3.57m for the points.  Jack and Dhruv in the HJ both cleared 1.50 (pb for Dhruv) and again very close results. Well done to Alfie and Finnian in the DT (7 points) with Alfie getting a PB in 16.10m.  Our 800m boys of Sam and Dhruv – both 2nd in A & B. All I remember about this is the winner from Croydon ran the first 400m is about 62 seconds!! Then Sam started to reel him in and we thought Sam would do it; if only he had another 10m. As the Croydon athlete’s legs were collapsing. Oliver ran a PB in the B 300m in 41.8 for 3rd but the top three were almost in a row at the line!  THANK you  Team Kingston – you are all AMAZING.

As you can see from the table……. In our final match we need to finish above  Croydon or South London to stay in DIV 1.  It’s great, exciting competition and I can only hope everyone is fit.  The areas we are short in are U13 field and middle distance.  So any U13 with a spare event will have to do their best at an event they may not usually do.

THANKS also go to Frank Schubert and Richard White for officiating the field events for our slots and to all parents that helped in the long jump.  Every help is much appreciated. 

NEXT MATCH Sunday 14th JULY at Coulsdon.

Chilly Bank holiday weekend for the first UAG YDL match 2019


The first U17/U20 match this season was quite a cold one, as there was a slight breeze blowing all throughout the day.  Unfortunately, mainly due to the upcoming exams and some late injuries, we had only 25 K&P athletes competed at Harrow.  This was 10 athletes down on our first YDL UAG last season.  In order to be competitive as a team in this league we need a turn out ideally of 40+ athletes. We have more than enough athletes at the club, so we need a big rallying cry from all of us, including the athletes that competed, to get more members involved at the remaining 3 matches. Not unsurprisingly, we struggled to fill lots of the events, notably the longer distance runs and many of the U20M events. Notable events on the day were the AAA Grade 1 performance by William Hobson throwing the Shot 14.51m, the U17W & U20W relays who both smashed the club records with a 50.20s (previous 51.1s U17W) and 52.60s (previous 53.4s U20W), a PB in the Pole Vault for Flora with 2.90m and we had two 1st places, three 2nd places and one 3rd place in the 200m races! There were a few other PBs on the day, please look at the full results on the Power of 10 (link provided below).  But it was not enough to compensate for the low turnout of athletes and we finished up 6th. If everyone who is not already up to the maximum number of events would fill one more event and with more of our athletes joining in, we may be able to get the points needed to avoid relegation. The next match at Hillingdon on 26 May will give us every opportunity to get everyone out, fill even more events in track and field, and go for a higher finish.



Harrow AC



Brighton & Hove AC



Hillingdon AC



Camberley & District AC + Woking AC

Grade 3 for Kira Holt (80m Hurdles), Madison Hutton (Shot), Thomas White (100m), Rhianna Reynolds (Triple Jump)

Grade 1 for William Hobson (Shot).

Full results are on Power of 10 (see link below).

SCVAC Report by Nicky Atkins


Monday 29th April 2019 was the first meeting of the SCVAC (Southern Counties Veterans Athletic Club) league. This meeting was held at Wimbledon Park Athletics track, hosted by Wimbledon Hercules. Seven clubs attended this first meeting. Walton AC did not show.

Unfortunately at this first meeting the team was extremely depleted on the night due to other engagements and injury. Even the team manager was unable to compete having completed the London Marathon only the day before.

However, Susanne Dietrich, Nicki Murphy and Jo Richardson were able to compete and worked their socks off raking in the necessary points.

I am pleased to announce that with just three athletes we finished third (80 points) on the night to Epsom and Ewell Harriers (151 points) and Wimbledon Hercules (107 points).

The date of our 2nd meeting is Monday 20th May at Ewell Court with Epsom & Ewell Harriers hosting

Lily B Match Report: 22nd April 2019


The first Lily B match of the season was at Epsom and Ewell on the beautiful Easter bank holiday Monday. The girls showed a great team spirit throughout the day. One athlete even rushed all the way to the match after a transatlantic flight to make it just in time for her events, what a great effort! 

We had a few last minute changes due to illness/injury but special thanks to those people that stepped up to fill an event when it was needed. This made a huge difference, as we gained those extra points which meant we enjoyed our 1st win of the season by 13 points. As new team managers, we felt very proud of all the girls and really enjoyed the day.
