SOUTHERN ROAD RELAY DELAYS If any of you are using the M1 This Sunday, the M1 will be closed for bridge demolition on 24/25 September 2016

The old Houghton Road bridge, a bridge over the M1 near Dunstable, will be demolished over 24/25 September as part of the A5-M1 Link scheme. Contractors will work throughout the weekend on the demolition, which will take place during full closures of the motorway. The demolition follows the construction of new bridges over the M1.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time for their journeys as the M1 between junctions 11 and 12 will be completely closed in both directions during the work. Traffic will be signed to exit at junction 9 and follow the signed diversion to re-join the M1 at junction 14. One lane will be open at junction 9 enabling traffic for Luton Airport and Junction 11 to head to their destinations. Significant delays are expected from 7pm on Saturday 24 September until the afternoon of Sunday 25 September, so drivers are advised to consider alternative routes if possible.

Please note that there are other closures in the vicinity of the A5 works which are not ours. These works are separate to the A5-M1 scheme and details of journey impact and road closures information for these need to be directed to the named contractors.

EUROPEAN CHAMPION CLUB CUPTook place in Castellon, Spain last Saturday

Report from Team Manager GEOFF MORPHITIS – A young and relatively inexperienced SBH team with only 4 top year juniors arrived in Castellon via Barcelona with no real expectations other than achieving a 3rd place finish on a good day to match the 2015 result. The Turkish and Spanish teams were in buoyant mood boasting strong squads based on having finished in the top 2 in 2014 and 2015.

The morning track session began well with a surprise win from NIALL CARNEY in the 400m H, who ran a conservative race for the first 300m and then stormed down the home straight to beat the much fancied Turkish champion. The 100m saw the first panic of the day. DOMINIC ASHWELL was a very late withdrawal in the 100m with injury. His replacement, DITA JAJA, was on the start line for the guest 100m and fortunately the organisers allowed the change to be registered. DITA lined up in the main race and after a nervous start strode through into 2nd place. The Hammer was a closely matched event with 3 throwers over 60m. BILLY PRAIM-SINGH took second place by just one cm from the Estonian thrower but behind the Turkish favourite. GEORGE EVANS won the Shot by over a metre. So with morning session over, SBH were leading by 5 points from Fenerbahce (30 – 25).

The afternoon session started after the midday break of four hours at 16.00. ALFIE INGHAM returned to something like his early season form with a top 4 finish in the Javelin. We then had the next big surprise when JACOB SPENCE was a convincing winner of the 110m Hurdles with a new PB. Next on the track was the 800m where OMAR PARSONS found himself in a high quality field. However, this talented athlete got his tactics spot on. Leading the field from the gun, he took them through in 58 secs with all the leading runners queuing up behind him. Every time there was challenge, he responded by speeding up and holding off the threat to win. This was OMAR’s best race of the year. The tension increased in the next race where MATTHEW PAGAN lined up in the 400m against solid opposition but he too had saved this as his best race of the year and ran out a clear winner. Every point counts in team events so when ABBAS ADEJONWO jumped a massive PB in the Triple Jump to secure a top 4 finish. It began to feel that this could be SBH’s day. So after 9 events, SBH were 11 points clear of Fenerbahce (64 – 53).

In a day of surprises, GEORGE GROOM supplied yet another one. We knew he could steeplechase, as he had won the England U17 1500m Steeplechase title and we knew he had stamina, having won the U15 National Cross Country title, but how would his debut in the 3000m Steeplechase work out? We need not have worried, GEORGE had devised a race plan and executed to perfection. He sat in behind the various leaders from time to time and eventually the race was down to 2 of them, GEORGE and the Turkish runner. Much to everyone’s surprise, it was GEORGE who set off with 400m to go and promptly destroyed all the competition, winning by over 7 seconds. The good news continued with the next track event, the 200m, where Team Captain, GERALD MATTHEW, completely dominated the race to repeat the victory he achieved in 2015 in Istanbul.

After 4 weeks off with injury, it was not surprising that LEWIS MCGUIRE was a bit rusty in the high jump and yet with first time clearances managed to secure 5th place. Back on the track, our U17s were having a field day. The 1500m featured HAMZA KADIR, the England U17 Champion, and was a typical 1500m championship race. After the 2 opening laps of 75 seconds each and a 3rd lap of 64 seconds, HAMZA took the lead to run 40 seconds for the last 300m sprint only to be just pipped on the line by the Turkish and Spanish runners. The next race was the 3000m and this featured JEREMY DEMPSEY, the English Schools U17 1500m champion, whose top 4 performance was in line with his pre-race ranking. So after 14 events, SBH were now only 4 points clear as Fenerbahce had won the last 3 events (95 – 91).

With just 5 events to go, it was getting very tense. ABBAS ADEJONWO was a late replacement in the Long Jump and after his great performance in the triple jump had the misfortune to get injured in the first round but still managed to get a mark in the 2nd round to secure the point. Up stepped GEORGE EVANS in the Discus to secure his double win. The sprint relay team of JACOB SPENCE, DITA JAJA, JACOB BERKELEY and GERALD MATTHEW produced a safe 5th place. It was now down to the last 2 events. The Pole Vault became the centre of attention and produced another nail biting result from ETHAN WALSH his clearance securing 2nd place, the same as the winner but ahead of Fenerbahce. So after 18 events, SBH were now 1 point behind Fenerbahce (115 – 116). With all the usual drama, the result of the whole meeting was dependent on the 4 x 400m relay. SBH had to win to take the Gold medals (as in the event of a tie in the points, individual wins would be taken into account at which point SBH would have 9 and Fenerbahce would have 6), and likewise, Spain had to beat Portugal to secure the Bronze medals.

The noise was deafening as all the teams and spectators understood the importance of the 19th event. The SBH quartet of JACK FITZPATRICK (51.7), NIALL CARNEY (49.8), OMAR PARSONS (48.5), MATTHEW PAGAN (48.0) ran themselves into the ground to finish in 3.17.92 which was a new SBH U20 Club record and the number 1 UK ranking time by a club. However, they finished 2nd just behind Fenerbahce and we thought all was lost. There was then an inordinate delay in displaying the race result. What was the reason? Then at last it came up on the screen, Fenerbahce had been disqualified and SBH had won the race and the title by 7 points (123 – 116). WOW, what a day and what a night!!!

Team Result – 1st SBH (123 Points), 2nd Fenerbahce Sport Club Turkey (116 Points), 3rd Playas de Castellon Spain (93 Points), 4th Sport Lisboa e Benfica Portugal (93 Points), 5th Atletica Vicentina Club Italy (86 Points), 6th Nike Klaipeda Lithuania (64 Points), 7th COA Lausanne-Riviera Switzerland (53 Points), 8th Audentes Sports Club Estonia (53 Points)

HIGHGATE HARRIERS OPEN MEETING Takes place tonight Thursday 8 September at Parliament Hill Fields. Please use this link to the SBH website – Home Page where you find all information and entry details

Florida State University

MICHAEL CALLEGARI Has just moved to the U.S.A, where he is just starting a full scholarship for athletics and a Master’s Degree in Sports Management at Florida State University in Tallahassee.

FSU who are known as the ‘Seminoles’ and were founded in 1851, and currently there are 41,473 students from every Florida county and 140 countries, with 14,367 employees and an operating budget of $1,575,794,473.

On just arriving MICHAEL was confronted by Hurricane Hermine’s, but not to be deterred he ran his first race on 2 September in Boone, North Carolina. It was a 6400m cross country race won by Harry Mulenga of FSU (20:04.44). A trio of transfer graduate students – Michael Callegari, Ibrahim Ahmed and Brandon Shemonia – followed Mulenga to the finish line. A transfer from St. Mary’s University in the UK, Callegari was fourth in (20:15.93). FSU men’s coach Bob Braman said “I thought the three grad students opened well and they all ran in their training flats.


SBH U17 & U120 Team - UK YDL Final - Bedford - 04-09-16It was a really good day of inter club athletics featuring the top 8 clubs in the UK. We had some fantastic performances and the details are in the results summary below. Let’s try and pick out one or two highlights.

The throws were a good source of points where GEORGE EVANS had a great day winning the U20 Discus in a new PB of 59.05m as well as the U20 Shot consolidating his number one ranking in these events and then went on to win the ‘B’ string Hammer with a new PB. Consistent contributions from BILLY PRAIM-SINGH (Hammer, Shot and Javelin). A surprise win came in the U17 Triple Jump where ABBAS ADEJONWO had a massive PB of 13.99m.

The outstanding athlete in the U20 Women was EAVION RICHARDSON who had a dream day with PBs in the 100m, Long Jump and Triple Jump giving her two 2nd places and a 1st. The women’s team generally suffered from injuries and late withdrawals with illness. Nevertheless, we had ‘A’ string wins from PHILIPPA DAVENALL (U20 Hammer). ISABEL DEACON (U17 Pole Vault) and JESSICA EMERY (U17 Discus) and in the ‘B’ from RACHEL CARTER (U17 80m Hurdles) and FIONA MCQUIRE (U20 Discus). ‘A’ string silver medals were won by ELLIE BAKER (U20 1500m), DIONNE MILNE (U20 Discus) and MEGAN MCINNES (U20 Pole Vault).

On the track, GERALD MATTHEW once more proved himself to be a fantastic club man and an ace competitor. A silver in the 100m, a gold in the 200m as well as anchoring our 4 x 100m team to a season’s best victory. Hard work was the team ethic throughout the afternoon. We had a further surprise win in the U17 100m when DITA JAJA equalled the League Record with 10.76.

Endurance has been the historic centre of much of the Club’s success and this meeting was no different. JEREMY DEMPSEY ran out of age group for the U20s and once showed his excellent racing brain in winning the 3000m and coming 2nd in the ‘B’ string 800m before picking up a bronze in the 4 x 400m. HAMZA KADIR, our recent crowned England 1500m champion was in impressive form, not only winning his speciality event the 1500m but also picking up a silver in the 800m and a bronze in the 4 x 400m. However, the athlete of the day has to be GEORGE GROOM, fresh from his victories in the England Championships and the UK School Games on Friday, he won the silver medal in the 400m Hurdles and then took double gold in the 3000m and in his speciality event, the 1500m Steeplechase.

Overall a brilliant team performance which saw the club secure 3rd place overall with the men winning their match and therefore qualifying for Europe in 2017.
