Midlands League - Stourport Match 1

Sunday 6th May Stourport

What a very hot first fixture in Stourport. We welcomed many new athletes who either hadn’t competed in this league before or who were returning after time off. These included Ashton Burnett, John Morgan, Malcolm Medhurst, Remi Adebiyi, Raheem Atkinson, Alison Singleton, Amy Jenkins, Jemima Jenkins and Phoebe Marsden. They all did fantastic with some great PB’s too. There were some very close sprint heats which resulted in Tom Evans, Adnan Shafique, Jasmine Barraclough & Megan Selway coming away with PB’s. The women’s 4 x 400m relay consisted of Anna Brown, Lisa Scarfi, Victoria Belcher and Juliet Sidney. They gave their all to come 3rd. In the field it was certainly challenging given the weather conditions but Jason Leach, Hannah O’Connor, Keith Powell and Kyle Arnold gave great performances. Joel Fowler and Lee Richards gave determined performances in the 400m along with Darryn McAtee in the 5000m. A special mention to Tyrone Fowler who did 6 events in the heat.

Without all these athletes, along with the officials and coaches who came to support us on the day we wouldn’t have had such fun. The encouragement everyone gave to each other is what makes this TEAM!

Athletes of the match are Caitlin Jones for running in the 1500m and 3000m in the scorching weather. She also threw a javelin for the first time! And Ian Williams for beating the M40 Discus Club record set by Rob Eales in 2009, he threw 31.06m.

Power of 10 Results
