Lawrence Davis' TJ record highlights final SAL

A third place finish in the final SAL match of the season left Woodford ending the season mid-table in division 2 East. The match was won by Tonbridge, who needed a big win to try and gain promotion, with Eastbourne Rovers happy to finish second to take the division title. WGEL finished comfortably ahead of Ryston Runners, to move above the Norfolk club in the division. The highlight of the day was a league record by Lawrence Davis in the mens triple jump, but there were Woodford successes across the day.

UKWAL: winners and division 1 champions

A terrific team performance coupled with some late cancellations due to torrential rain saw Woodford Green with Essex Ladies win the final UK women’s athletics league fixture of the season at Wigan and with it the division one title. The team had come into the match lying in third place in the division, but with a gap of three points to the top two moving up the table appeared unlikely and dependent on weak performances from not only hosts Wigan and District Harriers but also Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers. Ultimately Woodford won the match, 6.5 points ahead of Southampton who had gone into the match behind WGEL only on countback, with Swansea 3rd and Wigan 4th. Wigan’s fourth place meant they finished second in the division on countback, while SBH’s sixth dropped them back to mid division. Crawley finished seventh in the match ahead of Harrow who, like SBH, faded as the season went on having finished ahead of Woodford in the opening fixture.
