The Eastern Young Athletes squad stay top the table after retaining their unbeaten record in their round three fixture held in heat wave conditions at Chelmsford on Sunday.

The Under 15 boys dominated taking 17 first places, winning both A & B strings in seven events. Denzil Achi & Jack Botha took full points in both sprints, and there were win hat-tricks for Patrick McLean-Tattan in the shot & discus A and javelin B, Oliver Yexley in the A javelin and B discus and hurdles. Jacob Blanc won both A races in the hurdles and 300m, while Charlie Howell and Owen Fisher won A & B 1500m, and Dominic Alexandru completed the individual victory roll in the B long jump. Jack, Jacob, Dominic and Denzil won the relay with their fastest time this summer.

The Under 13 Boys were also well on top as new recruit Al-Ameen Salaam had a hat-trick of wins in the 100m, hurdles and high jump, and was well supported by Sebastian Alexandru who recorded a win in the B high jump and second places in his other two events. Daniel Lammas won the 800m and was second in the 200m and his B string partners both won, as Nathan Hart won the 800m and James Radden the 200m, and James was also second in the long jump. Michael Tesi won the discus, with Noah Harriott second in the B, and was second in the B shot, as were both Robbie Brown & George Francis in the javelin and 1500m A string Oliver Taylor-Bush. Al-Ameen, James, Seb and Daniel combined for relay victory in the fastest time by a club U13 team since 2015.

The Under 15 girls won by ten points, recording 13 victories. There were A & B wins on the track in the 300m (Olivia Boachie & Uche Okpalauko), 1500m (Natalie Sewell & Ruby Higgins) and hurdles (Paige Robinson & Paris King) and on the field in the long jump (Freya Higginbottom & Stephanie Okoro), and discus (Hannah Yexley and Katie Ennis), with Hannah adding a B 800m win and Stephanie second in the 800m A. Olivia Boachie won the B 20m with Olivia Sorrell second in the A, and Katie Ennis (vault) and Isabelle Bradley (B shot added more runners up points. Paige, Paris, Stephanie and Uche took the relay honours in a season's best.

The fourth team win came from the Under 13 Girls who edged out the hosts by three points. Cassie Campbell won both sprints and Zikora Ezeonwuka added another pair of wins in the A shot & B discus, Briana Ofori won the B shot, and Beth Jarret won the B hurdles and was second in the A discus, and Lucia Ward took the javelin points, and was B high jump second, and Hannah Evans won the 1500m B. Second places were earned by Eliza Poulson (A hurdles), Ruby Tillson (A long jump & 800m), and Rosie Warner (800m B), Precious Fagbadegun (100m B) and Charlotte Evans (javelin B). Another relay win & season's best came from the relay quartet of Precious, Ruby, Beth and Cassie.

The Under 17 Men had a close battle with Chelmsford, losing out by four points. Brad James had a B string win double in the hurdles and javelin, Toby Bishop won the A hurdles, Sam Sanusi the long jump, Peter Brinton-Quinn the A javelin, and CJ Nze's PB won the A triple jump. Kimathi Christie won the B triple jump and was high jump runner up, as was Daragh Thomas in the B high jump, long jumper Ashton Thatcher-Gray, Timi McDaniel (800m), Reece Debenham (vault - PB) and Elijah Payne (B shot).  

The Under 17 Women had their best result this summer. Alice Brown had a win treble in the 800m A, discus and B 300m, Jess Collier won both the B discus and javelin and was vault runner up, sprinters Esther Agnimel and Aaliyah Payne won both 100m races, Ruby Mace won the B javelin, as Adelaide Thatcher-Gray was second in the A. Moe second place points were won by Mali Grant (300m PB), Lottie Courtney (200m B), and shot putter Anne-Prisca Djondo  before the relay squad of Aaliyah, Mali, Emma Ramsden and Esther rounded off their day in style with the fastest clocking by a club Under 17 women's squad for many years.

Havering's win sees them clear at the table top after the third of the five fixtures, giving hope of the club winning its first EYAL title for many years, with fixtures against third and fourth placed teams Thurrock and Norwich to come.
