Also there were 3 runner up places from ARTHUR PHILLIPS U11B, JUDE MIRANDA U17M and INDIRA PATEL U20W.

Our teams were equally successful with wins from the UNDER 13 BOYS and UNDER 15 GIRLS/UNDER 17 WOMEN, the UNDER 15 BOYS/UNDER 17 MEN were a close 2nd to the home team Woodford Green & Essex Ladies and the SENIOR WOMEN finished in 4th place.

The next fixture is a little closer to home at Welwyn on Saturday 9 November, so please make a big effort to try to exceed our excellent days reaults at Claybury.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

As a 13 year old, CLYDE arrived from Wembley with his mates wanting to do athletics and 38 years on he is still an active member of SBH.  His enthusiasm and encouragement ensured that SBH became established as a major force in Athletics nationally and drove colleagues to reach their own potential.  CLYDE is a consummate team player and leads by example.
CLYDE is a qualified coach and looks after our young throws squad (which includes significant BAME and women).  He’s a qualified field official and timekeeper and has been working with our photofinish team where his IT knowledge has been invaluable.
CLYDE has team managed our very successful YAL boys team, then the NJAL team and latterly into YDL team, winning a number of regional and national titles over the years.  He was also a key member of the management team which took the successful SBH men’s team into Europe at both Junior and Senior level.  This year, he also volunteered to manage the club team in the UKWAL team.

GEOFF joined SBH in 1964. He took up coaching in 1972 and became team manager (Div 5 Southern League) and has continued to the present time winning the BAL Premiership title in 2012 & 2013. He was a member of the BAL Finance committee and awarded life membership of the BAL.
He became Club Treasurer in 1990 and remain so (nearly 30 years!). He was Club Chairman (1982-89) and Club President (1987-1990).
In 2004 he led the team of Club officers in the successful bid for the 5 year management contract of Copthall Stadium. He was heavily involved with the redevelopment of Allianz Park as the first joint use facility for both athletics and Premiership Rugby.
GEOFF was a founding member of the National Junior Athletic League and managed the SBH team to numerous victories with the Club representing GB&NI in Europe.
He has organised of the LICC series since inception in 2004.
He was elected a member of the London Council of EA in 2007.

START FITNESS METROPOLITAN LEAGUE – The first fixture of five takes place this Saturday 12 October at Claybury, Essex. (Please see all information in upcoming fixtures below).

The League was founded in 1966 in which Shaftesbury Harriers (Became Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers in 1986 after amalgamating with Barnet Ladies) were one of the founding members. Currently we are the most successful club with the most combined Individual and Team wins covering all age-groups.
This season the league is made up of 23 athletic and running clubs from Berkshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and Middlesex.

It was an outstanding 2018-2019 season for the club, although some of the age-groups were poorly supported. The final team positions were as follows – U11 Boys 2nd, U11 Girls 3rd, U13 Boys 9th, U13 Girls 10th, U15 Boys/U17 Men 2nd, U15 Girls/U17 Women 1st and B team 2nd, Senior Men 8th, Senior Women 7th, Masters Men 4th.
It is important to remember that there is a minimum number of finishers which will formulate a team score, if we do have the sufficient numbers then the team score is drastically reduced.
These are the minimum numbers to record a completed team Under 11, 13, 15 & 17 Boys & Girls 4 to score, Senior Men 12 to score, Senior Women 5 to score, Masters Men 5 to score, Masters Women 4 to score.

All the 5 Metropolitan League races count towards the Club XC Points Championships, also the Clubs XC Individual Championships include the 7 December fixture for the Under 20 Men, 5 Miles Senior Men and Masters Men 40+ and 11 January fixture is the Under 11 Boys title.
So please make an effort to support the Club and your fellow athletes at Claybury this Saturday.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

LEE VALLEY INDOOR FIXTURESA document for all fixtures from December 2019 to March 2020, can be found above.

IAAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPSTakes place from Friday 27 September to Sunday 6 October at Doha, Qatar.

Day 1 27 September Started with the Heats of the 100m OJIE EDOBURUN was drawn in Heat 1 and as he said after the race he ran an OK race, and finished in 5th place, he then had to wait for the remaining 5 heats to be concluded, to his delight he made the semi-finals as the last of 6 qualifiers. ZHARNEL HUGHES ran in Heat 3 and after a reasonable start, he then after a smooth transition moved away to a comfortable win, qualifying for the semi-finals.
100m – Heat 1 OJIE EDOBURUN 5th (10.23 w-0.3), Heat 3 ZHARNEL HUGHES 1st (10.08 w-0.8)

Later in the day LIZZIE BIRD proudly lined up in Heat 2 of the 3000m Steeplechase, and from the gun I believe her approach and technique, especially over the water jump was exceptional. She finished 6th in a personal best (9:30.13) taking 6.71 seconds off her current Club Record (9:36.84). Her time puts her UK No1 in 2019 and UK all-time No.3 behind BARBARA PARKER (9:24.24) and HELEN CLITHEROE (9:29.14).
3000m Steeplechase – Heat 2 LIZZIE BIRD 6th (9:30.13)

Day 2 28 September Started with the Heats of the 800m KYLE LANGFORD was drawn in Heat 5, the pace of the race was quick, reaching the bell in (51.38), in the home straight KYLE produced his customary late burst and was unable to catch the runners in front, finishing 5th qualifying for tomorrow’s semi-finals.
800m – Heat 5 KYLE LANGFORD 5th (1:46.14)

Later in the day was the semi-finals of the 100m OJIE EDOBURUN was drawn in semi-final 1 and finished in 6th place, after the race he admitted he had a poor race. But following an outstanding 2019, his mindset was very positive, and is looking forward to next year’s Olympics. In semi-final 3 ZHARNEL HUGHES after a slow start, ran a controlled race to finish in 2nd place qualifying for tomorrow’s final.
100m – Semi-Final 2 OJIE EDOBURUN 6th (10.22 w-0.1), Semi-Final 3 ZHARNEL HUGHES 2nd (10.05 w0.8)

The final event of the day was the final of the 100m ZHARNEL HUGHES who after the race admitted that he did not execute his race to well, and yes you get one of those days. With the Olympics some 10 months away you will see a different athlete.
100m – Final ZHARNEL HUGHES 6th (10.03 w0.6)

Day 3 29 September The first event of the day was the Heats of the 200m –ZHARNEL HUGHES who after last nights 100m Final, ran a controlled race to finish in 2nd place with a seasons best (20.24) taking .01 of a second off his 25 August time, ranking him UK N0.2 in 2019.

With the runners approaching the final 30 metres, the Moroccan OUSSAMA NABIL (who was subsequently disqualified) tried for a gap that was not there and threw KYLE out of his stride, and finished in 5th place.

SCOTT LINCOLN’S VIEWS ON BRITISH THROWERSThe following article was posted on the Athletics Weekly website.

SCOTT LINCOLN, the UK Shot Put No.1, believes British throwers are more likely to improve if they work together and share ideas.
The British champions has spent an eye-opening time training with world champions RYAN WHITING and TOM WALSH in the United States and he says they have a different mentality to the one he has experienced in the UK.
“In America everyone wants you to do well whereas I think in the UK there’s a bit of bitterness between each other although hopefully that can change,” he says.
“People also don’t like sharing experiences in the UK and aren’t very open to training together but it is improving and hopefully now I’ve broken 20 metres it will boost the shot put generally in this country.”
SCOTT who threw a PB of (20.39m) to almost qualify for the IAAF World Championships this year, adds “SOPHIE MCKINNA is also doing great stuff with the female side of things in the shot put and I speak to her most days.”
SCOTT says training with WHITING the for world indoor champion from the United States, and WALSH the reigning world champion from New Zealand, taught him the power of collaboration.
“It was a massive learning curve,” he says. “They told me I was lacking a few basics, my technique was a bit all over the place and my energy was going in the wrong directions. They said “Once you get this and that sorted out, there’s no reason you can’t break 21-metre-plus.”
“And I though wow, hearing that from such idols of the sport was incredible to hear. They’ve both thrown over (22.60m) so they know what they’re talking about.”
SCOTT continues; “So they’ve helped me technically but also given lots of general encouragement. RYAN checks up on me about once a month and it’s good to have him as a bit of a mentor alongside my coach PAUL WILSON.”

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.
