The above performances contributed to the second successive win for the Team Avon composite team. six competing athletes supported by three club officials ( Mike Strange, Bill Kingston and Hilary Nash ).
The match result was:
Team Avon 537
South & East Wales 477
Plymouth & Cornwall 369.5
The League standing after two matches is:
Team Avon 1123 16
Cheltenham 960.5 13
South & East Wales 836 12
Plymouth & Cornwall 770.5 11
Whilst I am delighted with the members who travelled to Cardiff I am disappointed with the support by the many members who are eligible to compete. Whilst some will have had good reason not to travel the overall list of those not available for the ladies was pretty extensive. I am sure there are quite a number who have not yet put themselves forward for selection or even expressed a desire to compete as a guest if not automatically selected.
The momentum is on to have further good competition in this league and experience a very competitive promotion match in August. The future beckons to experience good league competition where full team sheets are the norm.
My plea to athletes and their coaches is get stuck into the next two meetings in July at Cheltenham and Yate. Look at the performances on the www.nationaljuniorathleticleague.co.uk website. In order to compete you should complete an availability form and submit it to the appropriate team manager.
Cheltenham are aiming to win on home turf so stir yourselves and make sure you are part of a winning Team Avon.
