Congratulations and thanks to all who took part, including our Track and Field Judges/Timekeeper Bill Kingston, Colin Hickey, Martin Davies and Mike Strange as well as the fathers of Hayley Green and Sophie Coghlan for helping out.

Martin Davies awarded to prizes for some special performances on the day:


Hayley Pitman for winning 4 of her events, with a PB in the HJ of 1.68M,

She was also a winning member of the 4 x 100M team
Emma Heath for winning her 100m and 200m
Christina Jones for her performances in the Field events.
These were difficult choices because the majority of senior events were won by Bristol athletes – Leila Corfield winning her 400MH and Emma Reed and Lucy Taylor winning their respective 800M races.


Emily Diamond for winning the U17 100M
Ruth Stringer for competing in the U17 DIscus
Grace Hogan for coming 3rd in the Senior Triple Jump A competition.


Congratulations to Sophie Coghlan, Claire Dickens and Annie Trafford Walker for winning awards for their achievements on the day.

There was also a special prize of tight Lycra shorts for Mike Strange….not sure why?

Well done to the 4x100M team of Emma Heath, Lauren Martin, Hayley Pitman and Rammell Houson for winning in 50.0 seconds and the 4X 400M team of Emma Reed, Liz Tipler, Leila Corfield and Caroline Powell for winning in 4.08.0.

Finally thanks to Martin Davies for emptying the Kettering litter bin in my car boot …Bristol City Council will no doubt be sending me a surcharge.

We look forward to the next Midland League meeting:

Sunday 8 July at Yate.
