What A Team! Saturday 3rd June was round 2 of 4 at home for the British Mens League Division 1 team, and they had a wonderful day to win the match and go top of the league table with 2 matches remaining. The team was a real mix of youth and experience, all willing and able to represent their club with true team spirit. It was also most pleasing to see such a large portion of the team having come through the junior sections of the club. Unlike in Cardiff on Wednesday most of the sprints were “run against the wind” however there were still some great times set. The level of competition in the league is so high that there were just the two overall A string victories for; Dewi Griffiths (13.50.83) 5000m and a lifetime best; Glen Elsdon (14.89) 110m Hurdles. There was an all time club best for the 4 x 100m Relay team of (41.44) Lemarl Frekleton, Glen Elsdon, Michael Wilson & Sam Ige. Our thanks to the entire team, and team manager Dave, who gave their all in a magnificent team effort, and to all the volunteers who made it such a successful day and the very best of luck for match 3.
