Report from the Midland Masters Track & Field League at Rugby on July 6th
We are now 6th in both the Men's (beating Harborough and Nuneaton but behind the Rugby & Northampton B Team - Saints) and the Women's League (beating Nuneaton and Tamworth but behind R&N B Team - Saints). Our men's team was as complete as it is has ever been but we still need Men's 50/60 pole vaulters and walkers and more middle distance runners (our other two men were ill/injured last week but we have a 3000m and PV next time). Our Women's team moved up a place despite only having two athletes (three women were unavailable due to injury or other commitments) - so well done to Sue and Manjula (both in the top four in all their events)!
Although everyone performed well we should say we particularly welcomed the League debuts of Ian Wilkinson (the fastest of our four 100m runners) and of Gavin Russell who ensured we had points in the 400m and the pole vault. We also welcomed back Surjit Singh from injury into our M60 throwing group, as well as John Graham and Alan Mellett who performed well despite their injuries.
