East Anglian League Results

EAL – Bury St Edmonds – 24th April 2016

A massive well done to all athletes competing on Sunday at Bury St Edmunds Although the smallest club we held our own on the day in difficult conditions. Of particular note are the U15 Boys who were 2nd overall on the day, with their female counterparts also having a good turnout and results to finish 4th. The results for the day can be found here. The under 11’s have their own tab as non scorers on the spreadsheet and showing good potential for the future especially Cary’s Clarke whos shot putt was awesome. A couple of name changes are taking place for Cary’s (80m) and Warren’s (1500) and James’ time is being adjusted by a minute. Thought I would send these out so you can see how well you all did. Performance of the day has to go to Daniel Boulder for his massive jump in the long jump to win that competition. We need more athletes at the next one on the 12th June at Braintree. Encourage those athletes in your age groups that come to training to help you improve your team status. Under 11’s have a Quadkids event that we are hosting on the same day! So a split team but we are big enough to manage both, but we need to get the older age groups represented better next time. Thanks to all the parents for your help in the cold conditions and particularly Pauline Bell being static on the finish line all day, good to see you had thawed out ready for parent helper at training on Tuesday where it was even colder! Naomi O’dwyer took some  the photos on the day which can be found on our facebook page.

Biggleswade Sportshall Trophy

By Fiona Towell

I’m afraid we won’t be bringing it home this year, But ONLY because we didn’t have enough to defend it. NOT because the 9 athletes who turned up didn’t give it their all …

And they did! They sprinted, jumped, threw and ran paarlaufs until they collapsed in a heap at the end when the Grand Prix finished everyone off. And they made almost as much noise as last year.

Katie proved that being the only Under 11 Girl doesn’t stop you from racing relays and gave the boys a run for their Freddos. Our other Under 11 Boys were joined by Ampthill’s sole contestant, Jakob, who was a keen paarlauf participant. Sid had some time to make up however and showed tremendous strength of character as he fought hard from behind to gain some ground. Huge well done boys for making Jakob feel part of the team; and on that note I’d like to mention that two of the officials commented on the ‘lovely bunch of polite kids I’d brought along from Leighton Buzzard’. I was very proud of you all. Dan threw a good shot I was told and Fin PB I believe jumped extremely well. Both put 110% into the short distance races and Aaron made up about 10 metres in one particular Under 11 all out against Biggleswade in the finale. Ash made his Sportshall debut and jumped and ran in everything we threw at him (most Sportshalls won’t leave you quite as exhausted Ash but it was a good introduction). read more
