Results Round Up From Swansea & Elsewhere

Sunday 19th August was the Welsh U11, U13 & U15 League Cup Final at home in Swansea for the best eight junior club teams in South Wales. If you were a neutral it was an enthralling match, with the leading team changing endlessly throughout the day, if you were a team manager or coach it was enough to give you grey hairs! Every point quite literally counted from all of our athletes, many of whom had a go at disciplines that they usually wouldn’t for their team. As in Haverfordwest once again it came down to the final event to be scored, which on this occasion was the U13B Javelin, as luck would have it both our U13B javelin throwers are more than useful and both duly delivered under the pressure to win A and B string to seal victory for the club by the tiny margin of just 4 points! What a great way to end the season, our thanks to all the athletes who were at Swansea it was a true team effort, thanks to all the team managers and coaches present whose support was invaluable, and thanks to all our officials of which there were many, several of whom helped out all day Saturday too in the plate final. Individual highlights included overall A string victories for:
U15B Charlie Holland (2.03.73) 800m & Oscar Dun (35.18m) Discus
