Eastern Young Athletes League – Thurrock 14th April

faviconThe club’s young athletes took part in their first Eastern Young Athletes (EYAL) match at Thurrock on the 14th April. In cold and windy conditions, C&C U13,U15 and U17 athletes braved the weather to finish in a credible 4th place behind very strong competition from Shaftesbury Barnet, Thurrock and Basildon. C&C finished over 120 points ahead of 5th placed Colchester and Tendring.

Billy White continued his great start to the season with three first places in the U15B shot, hammer and a pb in the discus. Matthew Smith and Issac Pembery won the A & B string U13B 1500m.

The U17W team only consisted of 3 athletes so a special mention to Iona Butler, Jessica Clark and Steph Browne for their efforts. It would be great to see some more athletes joining them for the next match.

The next EYAL match will take place at Peterborough on the 5th May when we take on our Cambridgeshire counterparts, Peterborough and Nene Valley at the Embankment Stadium.

Thank you to all the athletes, parents, coaches, team managers and officials that participated.
