Welsh Junior League Cup Final

Monday 20 August 2018

The final club team competition took place at Swansea yesterday. A cloudy windy morning greeted our Welsh Junior League athletes. In the afternoon the sun appeared, and conditions improved, with athletes achieving pb performances.

Ben Reynolds won U17M race 3.57.76 pb. Unfortunately Welsh Athletices results only show the WJL plate final. Yet show on WA's report link to cup results, only Plate event results come up. 

Mark Vincent stepped drown as one of our WJL Team Managers after 5 years. Mark reported it has been a privilege to to watch the clubs U11-U15 athletes progress and develop during his 5 years. During his time, teams have won 2 WJL Finals,  and competed against the best in (YDL) UK Finals. He thanked all athletes, coaches, officials and parents, for their support, and has worked with some great club team managers. To all athletes yesterday at Swansea, a BIG well done.   

While individual results are not available at moment, the team scores are.

Match Scores after 68 Events

1. Swansea Harriers              1070pts

2. Cardiff Archers                  1066pts

3. Cardiff AAC                         937pts

4. Newport Harriers                 884pts

5. Carmarthen Harriers            826pts

6. Penbrokeshire Harriers        618pts

7. Bridgend AC                        442pts

8. Rhymney Valley AC             441pts

 

It should be noted that our team managers were affected by holiday season, and club shut down, (6 weeks) due to track refurbishment. While we have a temporarly problem. Other Welsh clubs have long term problems e.g. lost in field facilities at Barry, Rhymney Valley AC only have a grass track.

Swansea and Cardiff clubs dominate WJL results, with Newport Harriers improving, clubs slipping back in WJL include Carmarthen Harriers who dominated WJL at one time, and Bridgend AC.

Our club must continue to grow, and develop young athletes, for their own, and future team success in WJL, and can lead athletes on pathway, to club U20, and senior teams.
