Though not unduly cold,generally wet and windy weather featured at most meetings over the weekend but we start with a British Masters record! Yet again,Charlie Williams(M70) came up with the goods,clocking a fine 65.89 to smash the UK 400 standard,and added a silver behind old adversary,Ron Taylor,3 years his junior,over 100(14.35);

Les Hatton(M55 JT 40.67) & Camilla Thrush(W35 Weight 11.92) are also national champions;though the saddest event for K&P at the Alexander Stadium was Chuck Isetts' M60 200 - stretching for bronze over 200(he was 4th in 28.05),he fell and fractured his collar-bone,which will put him out of the forthcoming European Champs in Denmark,just when he was running better than ever.Over at Bedford,Dominique Blaize,contesting the AAA U20 HJ/LJ(though still an U17) showed her competitive ability with 2 bronzes against far older rivals(1m.73,just missing a jump-off,& 5.88).U20 Kyle Stevens,still slightly favouring a foot injury,showed he is getting back on track with a 5th place(Shot -16.09),whilst U23 James Heptonstall produced a Long Jump PB of 6.65 for 7th behind a few 7.00 metre exponents. Further south still,Stuart Price took the English Schools Southern Area U15B Pentathlon gold at Southampton,coming from behind in the final event,the 800 metres. More detail later but see separate reports on SML at Walton & NYAL at Perivale.
