WSEH Athletics Club have spent just one year in the top flight of British League athletics following their relegation from the Premier Division in Hendon.

With injuries and holiday absentees playing a part, and with their fate already sealed, the club fielded only a token team on Saturday.

WSEH finished last of the eight teams with a total of 178 points, well behind match winners Birchfield Harriers (390), Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers (313) in second, and City of Liverpool (299) in third place.

The club fared best in the field events with Taylor Campbell scoring the only win in the hammer with 68.48m.

The triple jump produced good points with Jonny Sawyers taking third with 15.13m, while Alan Kennedy was second in the B-string with 13.71m.

Joey Watson again exceeded 17m in the shot to place second with 17.32m. Decathlete Tom Reynolds was third in the javelin with 60.82.

Four WSEH athletes have been selected to represent Great Britain in a post-Olympics international match in Manchester on August 27.

Campbell goes in the hammer, Alex Tovey in the mile, Sophie Papps in the 100m and Amy Holder in the discus.

WSEH received confirmation this week that it will compete in the UK Athletics Youth Development League Under-13/15 final in Bedford in September, adding to their representation in the U17/20 final at the same venue on the following day.

This will be the first time that the U13/15 athletes have qualified for the final in contrast to four years in succession for the U17/20 team, who were champions last year.

It is a fitting tribute to those athletes concerned and the team management.
