Renewals Day

Saturday 4 March 9.30-11 is our annual membership renewal day. The annual club fee stays at £15, virtually all of which goes to England Athletics membership, without which you can’t compete. We also need to check that contact details, medical information etc is up to date.

Final sportshall results

The last match of the SYAL sportshall competition took pace at Oswestry on 12 Feb. We had another solid performance. The U11G, U13B and U15G came third on the day, the U15B were second.

This leaves the overall team standings as:
U11G 3rd
U13G 3rd
U13B 3rd
U15G 2nd
U15B 2nd
U11B 1st – congratulations to them!

We also achieved good club places, coming in second behind Bridgnorth for the girls, boys and overall trophies. We are traditionally strong in sportshall, and although these results are good, they are also slightly frustrating. The boys competition was split 3 ways on match points and Wenlock missed winning by only 7 league points – one extra person coming second in one race! Equally, in the end the overall title came down to just three match points.

None of that takes anything away from the athletes who competed, and the great support we had at all four events. Well done everyone!

Don’t forget to enter the sportshall county champs.
