Youth Development League

Friday 3 August 2018

After the seasons 4 matches Cardiff's Youth Development League team (YDL) Upper age groups (U17M/W & U20M/W) the team finished 2nd, with only the combined teams of Team Avon ahead. The Area final was held at Newport last Sunday. Like the day before (WJL) the weather was awful, with heavy rain showers and gusts of strong winds. Due to holiday season, the team was seriously depleted. Many athletes doubled up, or did 3 events to help buildup the team's score, in a bid to qualify (first 2 teams) for UK YDL final at Bedford. Despite the athletes best efforts, the lack of athlete numbers meant the team finished 4th.

Debbie Bull reported. A massive well done to all who competed at Newport in the YDL UAG Area Final. We didn't get the result we wanted overall, but appreciated the huge effort the athletes put into the team on the day. The conditions were really not good, but didn't deter team members giving theIr all on the day.

Debbie is very proud of all the athletes, and looks forward to seeing you again next year, and added, good luck for rest of season, and have a good winter season. 


For those graduating to to the seniors, we wish all the best, and hoped their time as a junior has prepared you for your journey ahead. For those changing school/college, starting university or work. Work hard, but make time to pursue your deams.

Good luck everyone and thanks for your support.

Team managers. Debbie Bull, Gail Gastin, Jen Stone.
