Congratulations to Pat Canavan and Linda Ingram, our new10,000 m champions. Pat, fresh from setting a track record for the mile last week, took it out from the start and was never threatened. His finishing time was 33.53.5. Dan Gillett came second with Jim Burdett third. At one time it looked as if Jim might catch Dan but he ran out of steam with 3 laps to go. Linda was first woman ahead of Ruby Sandhu, a pity there weren't more women racing but well done Linda. Thanks to all who helped with the recording and general organisation. RESULTS

English Schools Championship
ENGLISH SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIP
We had 4 young athletes taking part in the English Schools Championships at Alexander Stadium on the 12th July. It is the goal of all young athletes to qualify for these championships and the standards to qualify are very tough. Tom Holden and Creston Harrison were representing Surrey and Lohita Allen-Aigbodion and Nathan Fergus were representing London. Lohita was running in the junior girls 75m hurdles and was 2nd in her heat in a new personal best of 11.60. She was 4th in the semi-final and just missed qualifying for the final. Nathan was 12th in the intermediate boys discus final throwing 37.09m. It was the first experience of this level of athletics for both Lohita and Nathan and it will stand them in good stead for future championships. Creston Harrison won his heat in the intermediate boys 200m in a new personal best of 22.18. He placed 3rd in the semi-final and missed making the final by fractions of a second. Tom Holden ran in the Senior Boys 1500. With 19 entries, the race went to a rather packed straight final on the Saturday, rather than heats on the Friday. In a slow, tactical race, as 2nd youngest in the race, Tom finished 8th overall and second of the younger age group, in 3:56.19.
SLAN meeting at Track Coulsdon
We held our first meeting at the track on 28th. June. It was a SLAN under 17 and under 20 league and despite the rain it went off well. It's worth remembering that most tracks we visit have paid ground staff who are experienced in track meetings. We had to do it all ourselves with some outside help so full marks to Anne Roden, Ray Thompson and all who helped with the set up and running of the meeting - we will learn as we go along. Also thanks to all the visiting officials who helped the afternoon to run smoothly. Results will be on the SLAN website, our star man of the match must be Joe Lyne who won the 800m in just over 2 minutes and anchored the medly relay team to a win, good runs also from Aaron Wells and William Bardsley in the 400 and 800m. Photos are in the Gallery.
Next Sunday (6th. July) we host the boys' Ebbisham League, all offers of help welcome.
Anne Roden reports on the recent events:
The last 2 weekends have been very busy for our young athletes. On the 26th April the girls had the first Lily B match at Guildford. There were some excellent performances especially by Faith Price who won the U11 girls 75m and 150m and Olivia Dempsey-Streeter who finished 7th. Olivia then went on to compete in the 600m where she finished 4th with Rebecca Ward 6th and Emma Wood 10th. In the U13 girls Ella Price was 4th in the 100m. In the 200m Amelia Clark was 3rd in the A string and Peggy Winterborn was 4th in the B string. There were very good runs by Amelia and Peggy in the 800m
