WGEL ended their final UK Women’s Athletics League division 1 fixture in third place to miss out on returning straight back to the top tier. The team had started the day in 2nd overall in the division, with confusion still over the previous match scoring leaving scope for a gap to our nearest challengers, but Sunday’s result was definitive with Notts AC winning the match clearly with 230.5 to gain promotion alongside champions Cardiff (209). The WGEL score of 185 left us third in the match and the division, 2 match points behind Notts, with Crawley (167.5) next in both. Shaftesbury Barnet (161) and Harrow (157) followed, with the results of Sale Harriers Manchester (142) and Enfield & Haringey (129) confirming their relegation.
