SURREY LEAGUE DIV 1
A fantastic Men's turnout for the last Surrey League fixture at Richmond Park when we were facing relegation to Division 2. Our Young Athletes (above) set the tone with some great runs that meant the series Under 15 title going to Laurie Pope,and the Under 17 to Joe Lyne. On the senior front it was very close but we beat Clapham Chasers and they go down. We were actually 6th on the day so there should be no problem staying up next season if we get everybody out for every fixture. The roll of honour : Gary, Stuart, Ryan, Rob, Kristian, Jason, Liam, Dan, Matt and David. These are the men that kept us up in Div. 1. All the scorers for the season are listed on the Forum.
Gary, our first finisher. See Forum for comments and photos in the Gallery.
The Women's team, running at Lloyd Park, came 3rd. on the day and 6th. overall so they also stay in Division 1.Scorers were Rachel, Natalie, new member Laura Whitehead, Caroline and Ruth. Our Under 17 Girls Team won the league title with Amy Billups in 3rd. place,Tessa Billups in 11th., Keauna 26th and Melisa 41st. The fifth U/17 was Maya Smith in 55th place, she is actually one of our best throwers and just wanted to do a XC race and finish. Subject to confirmation, Amy also won the individual title. The Under 15 team were Georgia Holden (10), Fillipa Jeppsson-Wall (20), Lili Collins (29) and Kaeli Zonfrillo (37) .
