After a gloriously hot and sunny day (Friday) Saturday at the Cardiff stadium was cold, windy and occasionally rainy. Nevertheless, there was a better turnout of Cardiff athletes, especially from the Academy (thank you Danni and Hannah) for the second round of the Welsh Junior League (East Wales).

Once again, it was a battle between Cardiff AAC and its local rivals, with Cardiff finishing second to Cardiff Archers but well ahead of the other participating clubs.

On a cold, windy and occasionally rainy day, Cardiff's UK Youth Development League (lower age group) team returned to Yate yesterday for the second round match of this year's series.

After just coming third in the first match, a depleted team slipped to fourth and will need a much improved performance next time to avoid missing out on a place in the regional final (only the first three qualify), to be held in Cardiff on 15th July.

Cardiff AAC is one of Britain’s most successful athletic clubs and the premier club in Wales. In recent years, its growth and complexity have placed increasing demands on its organisation and administration, to the extent that a more professional approach is now needed.

The decision has, therefore, been made to appoint an administrator, initially on a part time basis, to provide a firm foundation for the club's future growth and development.
