The first round of the UK Young Athletes' League was held on Sunday last, 8th May, at Cheltenham. Cardiff's team, suffering from absentees and withdrawals, came third behind hosts Cheltenham and Carmarthen. Considering that 49 positions remained unfilled, this was a great performance by all, with great commitment to the cause, most athletes doing three or even four events.
