Promotion beckons

Tuesday 23 June 2009

Cardiff's Young Athletes' League team again dominated the fourth round fixture on Sunday, 21st June, at Telford, easily winning with 463.5 points from home club Telford. Potential rivals for promotion Marlborough were pushed into third place, effectively eliminating any chance of their challenging Cardiff for one of the two promotion spots. Cardiff can now go on to the final fixture in Swindon on 19th July virtually certain to be promoted.

Nevertheless, Cardiff will want to complete the season with an unbeaten record and to finish with a flourish so will still need to take the final fixture seriously and field another strong team.

Cardiff athletes won no less than 60 individual events as well as 6 of the 9 relays.

Athletes of the match were Lewis Newton (Under 17 boys High Jump A and Triple Jump A winner) and Sally Nicholas (Under 15 girls Pole Vault winner).

A full match report together with details of the Cardiff event winners are on the event page.

The match result was:  1. Cardiff (463.5);  2. Telford (367);  3. Marlborough (268.5);  4. Bridgnorth (141).
