Happy Easter everyone!!


It’s the time of the year where we are all beginning our Track season. With this comes the start of the Southern Athletics League and our mini-tour of the South!!


This year we don’t have to travel too far – which is good news. We have the delights of Eastbourne first on Saturday 20th April. We are really hoping for a good turn-out this year. We need sprinters, middle-distance and hurdlers for the track and throwers and jumpers for the field events. To allay the fears of some coaches, I want to stress that you can do whatever events you like – if that’s one event or two or more that’s absolutely fine. The main thing is you enjoy your day. We always have a good day out and plenty of laughs along the way!!


After Eastbourne on the 20th April, we will be travelling to Crawley on 19th May, at home in Canterbury on 15th June, Hastings on 20th July and finally Carshalton on 10th August.


Please do sign-up and join us merry band of athletes. It’s my first season as Team Manager, having taken over from “the legend” that is John Gilbert. Fear not John has assured me he will still be joining us on our travels – it wouldn’t be the same without him!! I hope we have a really good season and perform well.


Any queries or questions just let me know.
