National Young Athletes’ League, Southern Premier Lee Valley
17th May 2009
It was a cold and blustery day at Lee valley on Sunday. This 2nd round league match saw an improved overall team effort but, sadly, WGEL brought up the rear in 4th place. With a little more luck/discipline in the relays (we were disqualified in 3 races) and by plugging some of gaps in the next remaining 3 league matches we are still in with a fair chance of avoiding relegation.
Congratulations to Austin Joseph
(400m 51.00 sec and 100 x 4 relay) and Sophie Fuhr
(300m hurdles, 800m, 3000m and 4 x 300m relay), who were nominated by the team managers to receive the club Athlete of the Match awards for their fine performances.
Final Match Result
1st Enfield & Harringey AC 448 points
