Invitation cards have now gone out for the 3rd SYAL track and field meeting at Shrewsbury on Thursday 29 June. Please let team managers know as soon as possible if you can/ cannot attend.
The Shrewsbury track is at London Road Sports Centre (Shrewsbury College), SY2 6PR. There is plenty of parking. Events start at 6.45, so please arrive by 6.30 so we can finalise teams etc. Numbers and vests must be worn.
The second match of the season was held in glorious sunshine at Cosford on 25 May. Unfortunately it was a less glorious evening for our teams. Although we had some good individual winners – Ruari, John, Harriet and Toby – and a spectacular example of front running by Beth in the 1500m – our teams struggled. The U13B and U15G were 3rd on the night and retain those positions overall; and the U17W, depleted by injury and exams, were unlucky to lose their top spot. We finished the night in 4th overall, but significantly down by nearly 100 points.
The next fixture is at Shrewsbury on Thursday 29 June.
Before that a number of our older U13+ athletes will be competing in the Shropshire Schools Championships on 10 June – good luck to all of them!
