Thorpe Park Reward Trip

Thorpe Park trip

Today (16/09/2017) the club's junior squad enjoyed a day out at Thorpe Park. This was a reward trip that was funded by money raised from BBQ's in the summer, the YA presentation last December and Jack Petchey money. After a long season and some very good performances throughout, this was a time to have some FUN, which they certainly took full advantage of. GO TEAM WOODFORD JUNIORS.

BAL Round 4 - 2nd on day , 3rd overall

Copthall Stadium was the venue for the final BAL fixture of the 2017 season on Sunday. Later in the month than would normally be the case due to the London World Championships, all teams were weaker than usual, but there was nevertheless some good competition in the sometimes blustery conditions. Woodford placed a very good second the day with 290 points, behind comfortable winners Birchfield on 367, and ahead of Newham 285.3, TVH 272, Sheffield 264, Shaftesbury 261, Liverpool 227.3, and Southampton 225.3. That result meant Woodford finished 3rd overall in the Premiership table as Birchfield's fourth win of the season saw them comfortable overall league winners on 32 points, ahead of Newham 24, Woodford 22, Shaftesbury 19.5, Sheffield 17, TVH 16.5, Southampton 8 and Liverpool 5. Whilst all athletes contributed, with many doubling up or more, it was in the field that the foundations for the strong performance were laid. There were individual wins for Ezekiel Ewulo, Anton Dixon, Tosin Oke, and Peter Kirabo, and on the track from Daniel Rowden and Phil Norman.
