For the first time for a number of years we had a dry evening for the first round of the Veteran’s T&F league so, despite the chill in the air, the evening went well!
The Ladies team finished in 5th place and the Men (with very little NAC representation) in 8th place. Brief highlights included Jess Franklin storming to victory in the O35A 1500m in 5:09 – over 10 seconds ahead of the 2nd place runner, a win for Anne Stewart-Power in the O50’s 1500m by 20s in a time of 5:55.5 and a new club record by 1.5s and 3rd place in the O35B string race for E-J Bailey. Both E-J & Anne were competing on the track for the first time. Linda Pitts took 1st in the O50 100m as did Deborah Montgomery in the O50 Hammer & Javelin with throws of 28.93m & 25.50m. Bob Broadbridge took victories in the O50 Shot (11.18m) & Hammer (37.86m).
Next match is at Tilsley Park, Abingdon on Monday 14th.
