Cardiif AAC Training

As from today the track at Cardiff International Sports Stadium, at Leckwith, is not available for training. Over the next 2 months the track and infield will be refurbished, therefore will not be available for training until mid September. The Club Room will operate as normal on club nights, Monday and Thursdays. The Academy training will be held 6pm to 7pm, inside the Dome Unit opposite the track. The Dome Unit can be used by senior groups from 7pm.

Club Chairman Bernie Plain, has agreed an arrangement with Barry Harriers Secretary Fred Malkin, that Cardiff athletes can use Jenner Park for Training on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6pm to 8pm. Entrance to stadium via Gladstone Road.

Bernie Plain will make inquiries whether it is possible that club athletes can train at Jenner Park on oher evenings. Bernie thanked Fred Malkin for being so helpful towards our club athletes, during disuption of club training while refurburbishment takes place.

Charge per athlete for Jenner Park training will be £1.50. Some MD groups will meet in Club room, and train in local parks.    


Cardiff's Senior Womens Team Manager Sharon Hevaron, reported last Thursday before Sundays Division 1 match (2) in London, that her team was very strong. Saw Sharon near end of Saturdays Welsh Schools Championships in Cardiff. Sharon was looking worried. Met Sharon as she was leaving stadium, asked how her team was, her reply was team is in tatters.

Imagine my surprise upon seeing on club FB page, that Cardiff's UKWL team had won the second match in London. Andrew Seary BAL Team manager went with tee shirts for the team, and took a couple of team photos. Had to wait till team results were posted on Power of 10 to see team individual results. No team positions are available at moment. Once results were sighted, it was no surprise the team had won the match. With (9) 1st places won in A and B events. Team also had (5) 2nd places, thus were stacking up a good number of team points. 

Like the men's BAL team, the UKWL ladies team members also doubled up on events. The only event not covered was s/c, only 3 club runners took part in s/c, an event that few runners concentrate on.

It was no surprise that Cardiff's Senior men's Premier League team finished 7th out of 8 teams last Saturday in Bedford, with only Swansea Harriers (8th place) already in relegation position. Unless Cardiif can raise a decent team for the final fixture on the 4th August in London, they will be relegated.

There are many reasons why athletes do not compete in BAL team, yet on paper our senior men should be able to compete with the top teams in the Premier League. Rather than holding a post mortum on last Saturdays result, far better to be positive, and work towards supporting BAL Team manager Andrew Seary, and Club Captain Brett Morse, in fielding a team that will retain our place in the BAL Premier League in 2019.   

Those that did turn out last Saturday did their best, plenty of athletes doubling up in events to gain points that may well count in keeping our BAL team in the Premier League. Brett Morse was not well, yet competed in three events. He was beaten for first time in BAL meetings, in his main event throwing the Discus, with Shaftesburt Barnet Nicolas Percy fine throw of 63.17, with Brett best throw being 56.66. Brett also took part in Hammer and Shot Putt events.
