Menís Southern League, Milton Keynes Saturday 13th July 2002

A short-handed Menís Southern League team finished last of five in their Division 3 fixture at Milton Keynes on Saturday as League leaders Victoria park & Tower hamlets, and strong hosts Milton Keynes took the spoils. 

There were however a few highlights to lighten the gloom. Sam Harrison was a double winner winning his javelin speciality after hurling the hammer to take B-string victory points.  Hammer partner Kevin Deacon took second in the A competition.

Father and son pairing Stuart and Kevin Tufton scored good pole vault points.  Kevin vaulted 3.80m for runners-up spot while veteran former international Stuart was B string victor.

The youngest team member 16-year old Mark Connelly high jumped 1.80m to win the event.

On the track Rob Warner took the limelight as he recorded a new PB in placing second in the steeplechase, and also set a new best in the 800m. Neil Collins also set a new personal best in the 400m.

With one more fixture left, when the club host a ďhomeĒ match at Woodford on 3 August, the team are again hovering just above the relegation zone but should have done enough in the earlier fixtures to avoid the drop.
