Volunteers needed

To run the event we need to have a number of marshals as the course in on a public area, along with help setting up, taking down and catering. The safety of athletes is paramount, so having marshals is essential. If you can help with any of these please e-mail Ian as soon as possible:
Setting up 9-11
Marshalling 12.45 – 3.30. We arrange marshals in 10 pairs and give full guidance – no experience necessary!
Clearing up 3.00 onwards. There’s a lot of tape, posts and rubbish bags to clear from the site
Catering 12- 3.30. Liz arranges these in time slots, and will be e mailing shortly. You are able to go out to see your child compete.

The event can’t take place without your help, so please aim to give us your help and support. If you have any questions, just ask either by e-mail or on Saturday mornings at training.

Cross Country Results -11 November

Another glorious day and a new, and surprisingly challenging, course at Meole Brace School. We had another good turnout, especially among the younger age groups. Congratulations to Beth who maintains her 100% record. Our girls’ teams continue to do well in the defence of their title: the U11s came third and the U13s and U17s once again came in second.

The final event this year is our home match at Wenlock on 2 December. Distance and start times are as usual. There will be presentations after the final race. Plenty of practising on Windmill Hill and a great turnout on the day!

3rd cross SYAL cross country

The third match takes place this Sunday (11 November) at Meole Brace School, Shrewsbury, SY3 9DW. This is parking on site (although as this is a new venue, I’m not sure how much!) Dean has sent out course maps, but it’s a basic ‘laps of the field’ race. Usual distances, times and rules apply.

We had a great turnout last time, and some fantastic results because of it. Please let Dean know if you’re running, and please get out and support ‘the badge’.

Second sportshall competition

The second match in the sportshall league takes place on Sunday 18 November at Telford Tennis Centre, TF2 7AB – by the athletics track. There is plenty of parking but again, no seating, so spectators might want to bring folding chairs. Athletes should arrive at 1.30 for a 2pm start.

This is an invitation event and cards/ e mails will be going out – please let the club know asap whether you can or cannot attend.

There is a chance to get selected to represent Shropshire at regional sportshall competitions in February.

Good luck to all our athletes.
