National Road Relays: Ashley Reece runs fastest leg

Ashley Reece recorded the fastest overall lap by an u13 boy at the National Road Relays at Sutton Park today but hopes of team success were dashed by late withdrawals. Team manager Mike Munson had an incomplete U13 team of Reece and Matthew Watkins & the officials allowed Chris Driscoll an U15 to run, so despite finishing third the mixed-age team were ineligible for a medal. The u15 girls team of Natalie Adams, Megan Foley and Sara Luck placed 7th as Aldershot took all three medals, while the u13 girls team of Lauren Clark, Lauren McVicar and Katie Richardson did well in 10th. For the boys Andrew Hunter, Rob Howe and Andrew Bright were 42nd in the u17 event, while the u15 team of Andrew Luck, Ashley Roberts and Christian  Newton placed 52nd.     added 28/10/01

Mayesbrook woes continue 

The current problems at Mayesbrook Arena look set to continue until next summer and club officials are now resigned to relocating any home meetings to other venues. The home British Men's League Fixture in July will now be hosted by the club at Haringey. Any work on the track to remedy the effects of the tree root damage is unlikely to start before April 2002, probably much later - the popular winter warm up meetings are the first casualty. The continuing problems will be reflected in increased costs and loss of income for the club.  added 23/10/01
