UKWAL June 2014

Cardiff AAC has teams that compete at all ages and both male and female in the most important leagues that give its athletes wide ranging competitive opportunities. As another track and field season comes to an end, it is encouraging to look back at how these teams performed.

Pride of place goes to the UK Women’s Athletic League team which, under new team manager Sharon Heveran, gained promotion to Division One of the league, making it one of the top sixteen clubs in the whole of the UK.
