Ebbisham League – Walton – 8 May

A great first Ebbisham League match of the season all round, in fabulous weather! .  Walton came 4th on the day in their division, with Kingston in first place, Guildford second, and Herne Hill third.

Some excellent performances all round from the U11’s through U17’s with numerous PBs set.  The final results are still being processed and I will send these out when I get them this week.  Stand-out performance has to be Sam Bishop’s new U15 club record of 38.0 seconds for 300m.  Also great to see our new U13s, Jack Taylor, and Alex and George Whicker,  step into team scoring events for the first time.

Great team spirit on show and coming together for the club, with everyone taking some valuable experience from the day.  Many thanks to all of the volunteers and officials who truly helped the day run smoothly.  Thanks also to Hilary and Andrew for their continued devoted coaching, and inspiring the athletes to achieve.  Of course also thanks to the parents who give up their time to enable the athletes to compete J.  Special thanks to Jack & Debbie, without whom we wouldn’t be able host such a successful home match – they worked tirelessly from dawn to dusk to make it happen.

Finally as this was my first Ebbisham match as the new team manager, thank you all for your patience and understanding over the last 2 -3 weeks – a really pleasing first match for me.

Next up for the Ebbisham League is our second match at Tooting on Sunday 26th June 2016, for which I will be in touch nearer the time.

Just a reminder that if any of you borrowed vests on the day and have not yet handed back, please could you return to me or Andrew/Hilary at your earliest opportunity.
