posted 17 Nov 2014, 07:17 by Paul Strutt
The Junior awards night was held at the new club house at the garrison track with a fantastic turnout of athletes, parents and coaches.
Lance started off the evening by congratulating the young athletes on their success this year, in the 53-12 cross country and EYAL, but also praised the great team spirit he had witnessed.
Paul Young hosted the evening, and started by reiterating the success the club had had over the last year and the team spirit that had helped that happen. Paul then challenged the team to retain the 53-12 league title they had won last year and move up at least two places in the EYAL league to get a place at plate final.
Club Athletes Awards
The club athlete awards were presented by Linda Garnham, where she explained that the awards were not just for their achievements (both had made the English schools finals this year and set numerous club records), but for their support of the club and its teams. Jake and Philippa have been regulars in the EYAL team with Philippa also making appearances for the seniors in the Southern League.
