NORTH WEST LONDON LEAGUE The first fixture took place at Greenford last Saturday.
A good start to the season with a turnout of 10, of which 3 were recent new members. Performance of the day went to our Under 11 Boys, with ARTHUR PHILLIPS winning with EUAN PHILLIPS second 15 seconds behind, with recent new member PRINCE VICTORUS JOHN finishing 6th. The Team, albeit with only 3 finishers, won by 3 points from Cookham, to explain how the Team total of 35 points was achieved. The Team results are based on 4 to score, we had 3 runners who finished 1st, 2nd & 6th which adds up to 9 points. The race had 25 finishers, therefore any club that does not have 4 finishers, each non-runner receives 26 points. Therefore, we had 9 plus 26, which gave us a Team total of 35 points. The next fixture is on 23 October at Kingsbury, so put it in your diary now.

Shaftesbury’s ANGUS MCKENZIE was appointed as Competition Manager (Athletics) last year, and the article on him can be found in the 26 November SBH Newsletter.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

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.

THIS WEEKS RESULTS The Eastern Young Athletes League took place at Watford. The season has now finished, although it was reduced to 3 fixtures, each fixture has been organised excellently. To reduce travel, our 3 fixtures were against the same local teams, with Dacorum & Tring being our main opposition in all 3 fixtures.
Based on the provisional result of last Sundays fixture, I have calculated the final position by adding the 3 match points together, the final result was unbelievably close – 1st Dacorum & Tring with 1729 points and Shaftesbury with 1728 points.

The South of England U15/U20 Inter Counties Championships took place at Horspath, Oxford. All our athletes were competing for Middlesex, and they finished 3rd in both Men’s and Women’s competitions.

This week we had 5 season bests, 7 personal bests, and 1 UK top 10 performances.

MEL WATMAN DIES FROM CANCER AGED 83  – The following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by MARK SHEARMAN.

The former long-time editor of AW leaves a rich legacy after a lifetime of journalism chronicling the No.1 Olympic sport
It is unlikely that anyone in history has written more words about athletics than MEL WATMAN. A prolific trac – The following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by MARK SHEARMAN.k and field journalist who was admired by colleagues around the globe, he was best known for being the long-time editor of AW. To many older readers, he simply was AW.

Watman, who died on Friday (17 September) from cancer aged 83, edited the magazine from 1968 to 1984 but his contributions ranged from 1953 until close to the present day. His sheer quantity of words aside, the quality of his work was phenomenal. A doyen of athletics writers, he was renowned for his clear and concise style, incredible accuracy and, most of all, an air of authority in his articles which was earned through more than 60 years of trackside reporting. In addition to editing or contributing to AW, he wrote a number of terrific books about the sport. He began with his definitive Encyclopaedia of Track & Field Athletics in 1964 – a book that was so successful it was re-printed multiple times over the next 20 years – and subsequent History of British Athletics. The Coe & Ovett File published in 1982 provides a classic coverage of one of the sport’s greatest rivalries. His Olympic Track & Field History contains insight and knowledge gained from covering nine Summer Games. In more recent years his ‘retirement projects’ included the All-time Greats of British Athletics, a World Athletics centenary publication in 2012 which he edited and two books charting the long history of the AAA of England. Finally, in 2017 he published My Life in Athletics which SEB COE described as “a treasure trove of reminiscence … a must-read for any budding athletics writer”. Despite the title, this was not all about himself either. In typical style he focused moreso on the athletes and the performances which he had been privileged to write about over the years.

Born in the East London borough of Hackney on May 26, 1938, through a quirk of fate WATMAN later grew up in a house in Bedford that was just a couple of doors away from where HAROLD ABRAHAMS, the 1924 Olympic 100m champion of Chariots of Fire Fame, was born. Initially WATMAN wanted to be a bus conductor or a wing-half for Arsenal but a school trip to the AAA Championships at the White City in 1950 changed his life. He was 12 years old and was inspired by what he saw and during the trip he spotted AW being sold at a Hackney Downs Station bookstall. He snapped up two copies for ‘sixpence’ and soon ditched plans to be a bus conductor or footballer. “I was in heaven, reading and re-reading every line, every result,” he later recalled. “I may have been only 12 but already a dream was starting to take shape. “English was my best subject at school and I wanted to become a journalist. Better still, how about writing on my new love, athletics? That was it – my goal in life was not only to work for AW but eventually become its editor.” WATMAN was a talented middle-distance runner but he realised he was merely ‘club standard’ and that his future was best spent documenting the performances of his heroes.

IAN BEATTIE APPOINTED CHAIR OF UK ATHLETICS  – The following article was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently.
Former chair of Scottish Athletics gets top job at UKA as he replaces NIC COWARD. IAN BEATTIE will succeed NIC COWARD as chair of UK Athletics. The former chair of Scottish Athletics will begin his role in October and will oversee a governing body which is run by chief executive JO COATES. UKA say the search for a successor to COWARD was “specifically designed to attract a pool of diverse candidates” and there was speculation that someone from outside of athletics might get the role. But instead it has gone to a man who has a rich history in the sport, in addition to being a chartered accountant and chief operating officer of Lindsays Solicitors.

BEATTIE is a member and endurance coach of Harmeny Athletics Club in Edinburgh and has previously been a member of Portobello, Strathearn Harriers, Central AC and Troon Tortoises, serving on the committee of most of those clubs. He is race director of the West Highland Way Race – having completed the ultra running event eight times – and has completed more than 100 marathons and 100 half marathons. BEATTIE takes over at a difficult time for the sport, amid reports of disillusionment among a number of Britain’s best known athletes. He said: “I am delighted to have been appointed to the chair position at UK Athletics. It is an exciting time to be taking on the role and I look forward to helping the organisation provide a positive environment for athletes, coaches, officials and everyone else involved in the sport. “Having previously chaired one of the home country athletics federations, I recognise the importance of all the athletics bodies in the UK working together, with each of us performing our roles to the highest possible standard. “My vision is for athletics to be a sport where everyone pulls in the same direction and feels proud to be part of the athletics family in the UK. It is encouraging that the structures are now in place to allow that to happen, and I look forward to helping UKA play its part in achieving this in the years ahead.”

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward.

NORTH WEST LONDON LEAGUE AND START FITNESS METROPOLITAN LEAGUEIt is only 9 days before the 1st North West London League fixture takes place at Greenford on the 25 September. See upcoming fixtures below for all details of the 25 September fixture.
Start Fitness Metropolitan League, the 1st fixture takes place at Claybury on the 16 October. See upcoming fixtures on the 23 September SBH Weekly Newsletter, for all details of the fixture.

Following upcoming fixtures, there is an article I have written, giving details of the forthcoming North West London League and Start Fitness Metropolitan League 2021-2022 season, also a report on the final season that took place, which was 2019-2020.

UPCOMING FIXTURES Shows all fixture information for the period Thursday 16 September until Wednesday 13 October, and follows after this week’s results.

THIS WEEKS RESULTS The Eastern Young Athletes League took place at Watford. The season has now finished, although it was reduced to 3 fixtures, each fixture has been organised excellently. To reduce travel, our 3 fixtures were against the same local teams, with Dacorum & Tring being our main opposition in all 3 fixtures.
Based on the provisional result of last Sundays fixture, I have calculated the final position by adding the 3 match points together, the final result was unbelievably close – 1st Dacorum & Tring with 1729 points and Shaftesbury with 1728 points.

The South of England U15/U20 Inter Counties Championships took place at Horspath, Oxford. All our athletes were competing for Middlesex, and they finished 3rd in both Men’s and Women’s competitions.

This week we had 5 season bests, 7 personal bests, and 1 UK top 10 performances.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward.

TRACK AND FIELD 2021 – Shaftesbury’s domestic season comes to an end this Sunday, with the final Eastern Young Athletes League at Watford. The beginning of the year, there were some test events held with Covid restrictions, which highlighted certain issues. Many of these were discussed and changes made, which meant that our domestic leagues were confident on moving forward. Overall the fixtures have been very successful, and I would like to thank all our Team Managers, Helpers, Officials and our athletes, especially those last minute problems which we managed to resolve. Hopefully 2022 we should return to something normal, with our teams fighting for league honours in all age-groups.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

I would welcome any contributions From Yourselves, any impending marriages, or additions to the family, any running or competing incidents, also past warm weather training/holidays (No Club 24 please). Currently the response has been excellent, but if you have anything that could make it into next week’s Newsletter – please email me.

PHOTOGRAPH’S – From time to time we have photographs of our members taken at meetings or presentations which we would like to use both on the website or incorporated within our report to our local newspaper. Can you please let me know if you do NOT want your photograph to be published. Also, I would appreciate if you could send me any photographs, which I can then publish on the website and newsletter.

FACEBOOK – Photographs can be found on the SBH page.

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.
