What a great start to the second half of the 2016/2017 season. Some wonderful performances have been registered by all age groups and a club record too for Zoe (U8Girls).

Today also saw a veteran athlete run the 400m with the U14-17’s. Under 11’s age Manager, Geoff Davidson, take on a combined field of runners and showed that, despite a few years on the side lines, his skill as a mid distance athlete is still impressive. Well done Geoff!
