Senior women slip

Tuesday 5 July 2016

After finishing a creditable fifth in the first round match of this year's UK Women's Athletics League, Cardiff's senior ladies slipped to seventh place last Sunday, 3rd July, at the Lee Valley stadium in London.

Cardiff finished the day on a good note by winning the final event, the 4x400m relay but now need an improved performance in the third and final round on 7th August in Manchester in order to retain its place in this division.

Once again, team captain Rhiannon Linington-Payne led by example, taking part in three individual events and both relays.

The match result was:

1. Blackheath & Bromley AC (220.5)
2. Bristol & West AC (213)
3. Woodford Green & Essex Ladies (191)
4. Crawley AC (183.5)
5. Trafford AC (167.5)
6. Harrow AC (149.5)
7. Cardiff AAC (138)
8. Wigan & District H (133)

The league position after two rounds is:

1. Blackheath & Bromley AC (15)
2. Woodford Green & Essex Ladies (14)
3. Bristol & West AC (13)
4. Trafford AC (9)
5. Harrow AC (6) (315 match points)
6. Crawley AC (6) (298.5 match points)
7. Cardiff AAC (6) (292 match points)
8. Wigan & Districy AC (3)

With three clubs each having 6 points, the tussle in the final match to avoid relegation will be close.
