SCVAC-Kent League-Men Div 1-Julie Rose, Ashford 05/07/2013

 

Unfortunately 3 of our “stalwarts” were unable to make this meeting so it was left to another Invicta combination of “The four musketeers” to represent the club. Martin Kelk (M45) excelled to place 4th in the 35+ “A” 400m (59.4) and 5th in the same age group “A” 3k (10-27.4) .In the 50+ events Richard Hudson  (M55) , as usual, ran himself to near exhaustion in the 400m (77.4) and 3k (13-51.7). Well done Martin and Richard.

 

David Glendower (M45) made a welcome return to the team, having sacrificed half a days` work to be present, and in the 35+ Hammer he placed 5th (21-80). John Gilbert (M70!!) came 2nd in the 60+ Hammer (28-44) and picked up a point in the 50+ TJ (6-10).

 

Given the events we were obliged to forfeit through lack of numbers it was unsurprising that we finished in last position in the match and languish at the bottom of Div 1.

Once again we had no Women competitors at this match.

 

The final match of the season is at Dartford this coming Monday 15th July. The “sign-up” sheet is on the clubhouse notice board and the program of events and timings are also there and on the club website. I know all our “regulars” will do everything they can to be there. It would be pleasing if they could be supported on the night by some of the other vets in our club.

 

Yours in Sport, John Gilbert
