GEOFF MORPHITIS commented, “This is a fantastic achievement for not only the athletes concerned but also for all members and officers of the Club. Our policy on concentrating on the development of young athletes is paying back handsomely. The last 2 years have been like a dream come true, with the Club winning its first ever Premiership title and the junior squad winning the National Track and Field title in 2012 and then repeating this success in 2013. On the international stage, London hosted the Olympics and the Club benefitted from the legacy brought by Saracens as partners in the redevelopment of Allianz Park (Copthall Stadium) making it one of the leading athletics facilities in London and the South East. We now look forward to an even more successful future with record numbers of new members joining.

A short survey that covers these topics is now live.  Click here to go to the survey

The survey covers topics that include England Athletics’ finances, affiliation and registration fees, the possible reintroduction of unattached levies, England Athletics’ functional priorities and registered athlete benefits.

In order to shape the way England Athletics works in the future, it is vitally important that as many athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers as possible take the time to respond. Before doing so, please visit where the notes and information from the Club Conferences can be found.

You can also click here for details and an explanation of England Athletics’ financial position.

The results of the survey will inform decisions made by the England Athletics board for 2015-16 and beyond.

FROM MEL ELLIS – Thought I’d drop you a line to let you know that I’m cycling from London to Paris with my brother to raise money for the hospice which took great care of my dad during the last two weeks of his life. I’m completely out of my comfort zone as I’m no cyclist, long distance running is so much easier, to me anyway. I don’t know whether this is appropriate but wondered if there were any members of Shaftesbury Barnet who would be interested in sponsoring me. If so this is the link to my Just Giving page Mel has been a member of Shaftesbury since 1995 running mainly on the road, and ran 2:46.55 in the 1998 Boston Marathon.

BRITISH ATHLETICS LEAGUE PREMIERSHIP ROUND 3 Took place on 5 July at Allianz Park for the Power of 10 results use this link once you access the PO10 result you can select “External Result” at the top of the page which will then load the official results.

The SBH performance at Allianz Park (Copthall) in finishing 5th on the day, albeit by a much weakened team due to illness, injury and general unavailability, has all but blown our chances of retaining the title. We must beat City of Manchester by 2 places in the final match at Sportcity, Manchester on Saturday 9 August. Difficult yes, impossible no, given the present  Premiership position. League positions after 3 matches 1st City of Manchester 21.0 (915), 2nd SBH 19 (970.5), 3rd Sheffield 13.5 (790), 4th Cardiff 13 (738), 5th Newham 12 (792), 6th Birchfield 10 (776.5), 7th Liverpool 10 (746), 8th Enfield 9.5 (759)

Newham won at Copthall and with none of the bottom 4 safe from relegation, this should produce a good final match.

Our performance, like a golf match, was one of 2 halves. We were on par and better in 9 events and well below our normal standard in 10 events. Our usual ratio is 16 and 3. Nevertheless, thanks to everyone who competed and in particular to those who stepped in at the last minute to cover gaps to cover the injuries on the day. We welcomed back JOHN OTUGADE (1st 100m B) and MAURICE RYAN (2nd 110m H B and both relays) from injury. We had “A” string wins from CONFIDENCE LAWSON (100m), DANIEL BRAMBLE (LJ) and NATHAN FOX (TJ). We had a number of Season Bests and Personal Bests, but probably the most surprising came from ADE ADEFALOLU who in his BAL debut as a last minute addition improved his PB in the LJ from 6.65 to 6.91 for 3rd in the “B”. Another last minute change was in the 800m where MICHAEL CALLEGARI stepped in and ran a PB of 1.54.72 for 3rd place. Our 2 stand-in hammer throwers GREG THOMPSON and SAM TAYLOR-OUTRIDGE also threw PBs.

Finally, in the Discus, we had 2 competitors and 2 guests and we finished 2nd , 3rd , 4th and 5th with ZANE DUQUEMIN throwing a SB of 61.15 and the other 3 (ANGUS MCINROY, NICK PERCY and GREG THOMPSON) all throwing over 55m and within 57cm of each other.

Match Result 1st Newham & Essex Beagles 321 points, 2nd City of Manchester 305, 3rd City of Liverpool 284, 4th City of Sheffield 276, 5th SBH 266, 6th Birchfield Harriers 257, 7th Enfield & Haringey 255, 8th Cardiff 180

UK WOMENS ATHLETIC LEAGUE DIVISION 1 ROUND 3 Took place on 6 July in Liverpool, for the Power of 10 results use this link once you access the PO10 result you can select “External Result” at the top of the page which will then load the official results.

NICOLE CARA has written the following – It was with trepidation and determination that the team travelled up to Liverpool for the last match in the league. The team meeting on Saturday night confirmed just how close we were to relegation and how important each athlete’s performances would be. I was so proud and humbled by the effort and team spirit showed by the entire team throughout the day, despite many injuries. As the results were announced we were in 6th place above Crawley AC. Closer inspection of the results actually showed we were tied with Crawley on league table points, and amazingly had exactly the same total match points (484). SBH avoided relegation as we beat Crawley in 2 of the 3 matches, really illustrating just how much every point counts. A huge thank you to everyone who competed across the season. Special thanks to those who competed in all matches: VICTORIA WALKER who despite running about 5k every match kept positive, and to LUCY UNDERDOWN who has torn her calf but standing threw a huge 42m and 11.90m to win the Discus and Shot, respectively. Planning has already begun for us to aim for promotion back to the premier division next year.
