Euro U/23 bronze for Cameron Fillery

Representing GB&NI at the European U/23 Championships in Gavle, Sweden, Cameron Fillery placed 3rd to claim a bronze medal. His time of 13.64 secs (+1.4), was a fraction slower than the new personal best of 13.60 secs (0.0) he set when winning his semi-final. GB's men's 4x400m team placed 2nd in the final, and Ellis Greatrex, although not on the team for that final, ran 3rd leg on the team that won the semi-final to qualify.

SAL 4: Home win eases relegation risk

Victory in the home SAL match on Saturday 13 July took Woodford to safety in division 2 from having been in the relegation zone. This was the second win of an up and down season and was against the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed teams going into the match. Provisionally WGEL finished 4 points clear of Basildon, with Havering 3rd and the Ipswich/Colchester& Tendring combined team last despite not having a single gap. Fixture clashes weakened all the teams and while the promotion chasing clubs all strove hard to cement their positions, Woodford dominated by event wins.
