BAL Premiership 2018 Match One

Woodford’s BAL team faced a tough battle in the first Premiership fixture of the season at Leigh. Missing several athletes to the British Universities (BUCS) Championships as well as several others through injury or other factors, the team ended up 6thon the day in what proved a very tight result, with many other Clubs also affected by the BUCS clash. All of Woodford’s athletes performed admirably, led by a notable 3km Steeplechase and 1500m double from Phil Norman, a high jump win for Robert Wolski and a triple jump double from debutant Lawrence Davis and Peter Kirabo, but also notable for the way the athletes rallied round, some filling unfamiliar events to plug the gaps. There were other Woodford BAL debuts for Chris Stone, George Vaughan and Frank Moore. Scores on the day were, Birchfield 345, Sheffield 318, Cardiff 280, Shaftesbury 259, TVH 250, Woodford 246, Newham 242, and Swansea 236.
