On a good evening at Wimbledon Park on 14 July we finished 3rd in the match which means we finish the season in 3rd in the SW London division. We covered every event except the m60 discus, where the athlete was caught out by the closure of Putney Bridge that day. The team manager also made the mistake of only putting Mark Reed (making his season's debut in the league) to score in one event and choosing the wrong one. He did ok in the m40 800, but running as a non scorer won the 5000! It made no difference to our final finishing position however.

Apart from Mark we had wins from Adam Bellis (m35 200m), David Bell (m50 2k Walk), Andrew Gordon (m40 Javelin), and Steve Berkeley (m50 High Jump). Our 4 x 200 Relay team (Andrew Gordon Ollie Oladele Draco Mkpa and Adam Bellis) nearly caught Hercules Wimbledon, and other 2nd places came from Draco Mkpa (m40 200m), Renzo di Libero (m50 Discus), and Rupert Bole (m50 Triple Jump (also did 800 and Javelin)). Our other team members were Cashel Riordan, Mike May, Chuck Isetts, Mike Edwards, Peter Wilkins, Malcolm Fletcher (making his debut), Jon Cook, Geoff Reed, Robin Shaw, and David Barrington (thanks to him and Frank Schubert for organising the ladies's shot putt as well).
