LIAM DEE USA BOUNDLIAM is off to USA on 15 August to Iona University where he will study biology. This is a small school with approximately 4800 students and is situated in ‘New Rochelle’ a suburb of New York and about 19miles from down town Manhattan.

Athletically they are a distance running specialist University with big designs on the NCAA cross country championships. They were 6th team last year and are looking to improve on this over the next few years. They have a new international intake of scholarship athletes from at least UK, Germany, Kenya and of course the USA.

LIAM is one of three British athletes to start this year with several Brits already in attendance including Kate Avery who was 4th in the women’s 10,000m at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and incidentally the men’s marathon silver medallist from Glasgow, Kenya’s Stephen Chemlany is an ex Iona student/athlete.

LIAM feels he will benefit from the training group/company and is looking forward to racing a few indoor meets in Jan/Feb time.

KYLE LANGFORD – At last week’s World Junior Championships KYLE ran in the final of the 800m suffering with a stomach bug, after being up most of the night it was touch and go whether he would run.

MIDDLESEX WIN INTER COUNTIES – The U15/U20 Inter County Championships took place at Allianz Park on 3 August. CLYDE GORDON was the Middlesex Team Manager for the U20 Men/Women and they turned in an awesome performance to win the Inter Counties for the first time since its inauguration in 1989.

COACHING MASTER CLASS – Takes place at Allianz Park, Indoor Area on Wednesday 13 August. Coaches ALAN LAUNDER and TOM MCNAB will be taking the session.

The North London Network has taken the opportunity of organising the above Master Class. These two coaches have a long list of achievements over many years including the development and launch of the very successful 5 STAR AWARD SCHEME. Attached is a document which give you all some background. ALAN was head of PE at Dr Challenors School in Buckinghamshire which at the time was one of the leading schools for athletics in the UK. The participants will be split into 2 groups focusing on each event with a Q&A session at the end.

The Master Class will be free to all participants ie both coaches and their athletes. Invitation has been sent to the local Networks as well advertising it through the London website and England Athletics.

I think this will be an excellent event for all coaches whatever their status and experience. Although based on PV and TJ, the principles to be followed will apply to the teaching of all events.

Please e-mail GEOFF MORPHITIS at if you wish to attend

Final League Positions 1st Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow 22 league points 2712 match points,

2nd Blackheath & Bromley 18 (2586), 3rd SBH 15 (2511), 4th Team Norfolk 12 (2319.5), 5th Reading 9.5 (2330), 6th Tonbridge 7.5 (2137.5)

The season turned out to be somewhat a rollercoaster of a ride, we started Match 1 (Norwich) giving the eventual league winners WSEH a real fright finishing just 5.5 points behind them. Unfortunately our U20 4x100m men’s relay team were disqualified even though they clearly won the race in 43.80. Match 2 (Bromley) was the difference between us finishing 2nd instead of 3rd, due to a very much weakened combined team could not cover the many gaps due to exams and injuries particularly on the women’s side. The men were equal 1st whilst the women were 6th. However on a combined basis the team ended in a disappointing final place of 6th on the day. Match 3 (Eton) was a much better team performance clearly establishing SBH in 3rd place on the day and 3rd overall after 3 rounds.

Match 4 (Allianz Park) we finished the season as we started it finishing runners up to WSEH.

Currently we are so privileged to have so many talented under17 and under 20 athletes, next season we will be considerably stronger with many of our under 15 boys and girls being eligible to compete.

Apologies non-scoring results are not available as yet, and will be published next week
