As is normally the case numbers at training this week were a little down on our normal numbers but I expect we’ll be back to normal this week.
On Wednesday 7 of our athletes took part in the Sussex and Surrey Schools Combined Events Championships at K2. Then on Friday evening we had an under 15 Sussex league match at Horsham. Like ourselves the other teams had athletes missing, but we were able to field a reasonably full team. Ethan Scott improved his 1500 metres time by another second or so but there were a number of other good performances by our athletes. I haven’t as yet seen the full results.
Sussex and Surrey Schools Championships for years 8 and above
We have no club matches this coming weekend but the county school championships take place on Saturday June 10 with successful athletes hoping to make the English Schools Championships to be held in July in Birmingham. The Sussex event is at K2 while the Surrey championships take place at Kingston. As this is a schools event the selection of athletes is nothing to do with us and will have been carried out through school competitions.
One or two of our members will be involved in judging the events.
Matches coming up in the next couple of weeks
As above there are no club matches this coming weekend. However the following week gets busy again with matches as follows:
Thursday June 15 – under 13 match for school years 6 and 7 at Horsham
Saturday June 17 – senior match at Tooting Bec for adults and for school years 10 and above.
Sunday June 18 – under 13 and under 15 match (school years 6 to 9) at Hastings. We know it’s Father’s Day but I’m sure that lots of dads out there would love to see their sons and daughters doing athletics.
