Report by Helen Jones

It was another glorious sunny day at Hexham for the final competition of this years NEYDL league.  We had a full bus of athletes, officials, coaches and parents, all singing our way up to Hexham.  We had several families who met us there also.

As Officials we had a very busy day officiating at 4 events, so sorry there are not more photos for this match.  Busy seamed to be the theme for the day.

The following are some PB’s that the athletes on the bus got, but I am sure there were more from those with their own transport, so an exceptional well done to everyone.  The first on the list was actually from the last event of the day, but I think we saved the best until last. One of our U17 Javelin throwers, Charlie Jefferson, not only improved on his PB by a massive 5metres, but he broke the league record and the club record which has stood for over 20 years. 46.35m Well done Charlie!!

Unless anything changes we finished 4th in the league overall, less than 10 points away from 3rd. This is a great result as we remain in the first division for next year’s competition.  Many thanks to all that competed for the team, and all the helpers that ensue these events run.  Special thanks to Jean Cole our team captain for many years, who knows the ins and outs of everything, and usually finds a solution to most problems!!
