We have received this letter via one of our parents and thought we should share it with our members and their parents in respect of coming to and from training, especially now the evenings are darker.
We’re pleased to announce that Jill Slatter has been awarded the England Athletics South East Regional Council Award for Services to Athletics, following a nomination from the Club’s committee (and other individual nominations).
Jill was one of the founder members of Radley AC in 1972 and continues to support its activities acting as a sprint/hurdle coach, track judge and sitting on Committee.
Entries for our Club Championships taking place on 10 September 2016 have now closed, thank you to everyone who has entered.
No more entries will be accepted and no entries or registrations on the day.
Radley’s senior team travelled to its final SAL match in Dartford on Sat 20 Aug.
Lack of availability of athletes meant the team was only 16 athletes strong (including 6 masters athletes) across both genders and this was therefore always going to be a struggle to fill every event (2 per event) against the top 2 teams in the league. Despite this the athletes there covered as much as they could and rallied around, showing great team spirit to muster as many points as possible. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough and the team came 4th on the day with only 143 points.
At the u15/u17 South of England Champs Holly Griffiths-Brown landed the Gold medal in the u15 girls triple jump. As Holly took her first jump it was evident that the competition was over as she landed a 10.58mt jump - this was up in the top 5 jumps in the country this year and shocked the other competitors who never recovered. No one could respond and Holly just got better and better as the rounds went on.
