Brilliant NJAL Match 3
The two matches contested this year in the National Junior League for the club's U20 men and women have gone particularly well for the club. The first match was Wavertree on April 29th was abandoned through heavy rain).The second match in Gateshead saw the club narrowly defeated by a mere 8 points from Team Edinborough, but reversed that result at Wakefield last weekend (22nd July), winning by 20pts.
This was deemed one the finest club victories of recent years, with both men and women overcoming gaps in events caused by holidays and injuries, but found the athletes competing performing brilliantly to overcome this deficit. Strong representations in the sprints were led by Roy Ejiakuekwu, Nathan Selby, Callum Roughneen, Zenon Wisniewski , Denver Morrison-Massey and Olivia Callaghan set the scene for exiting relay results. Charlie Hulson, Ryan Moore and Callum Greenwood were the backbone of a dominant middle distance squad.
Multi-events also had a field day. Brogan Crowley, Marnie Wells-Nicholls ( 15.30 hurdles PB) and Alex Wort all had point scoring doubles, but Jack Sheldon had 2 pbs in his Hammer/Discus/Javelin treble, and Joshua Booth scored well in his 3 events. Charlotte Dickinson threw majestically in the Javelin and Discus.
In fact there were many more notable performances, which put the club well in contention of competing in the National Final at Derby on Sunday 9th Sept.
