Individual results during the last week or so for Woodford athletes have been highlighted by a “domestic” Club record over 110mH for Cameron Fillery, and personal bests for leading throwers Youcef Zatat and Lucy Marshall. There were also medals at the Scotland Championships and at the South of England Age Group Championships.

The team comprised David “Evil” Hollingworth, Cowsi Magol with their respective Christine wives, former University Challenge champion Harold “Warwick” Wyber, plus a few friends.

By the end the other teams, consisting of many of Haslers' clients, and including a frightening number of solicitors and wealth managers, had been put in their place. The photo shows the team with the winners' trophy, which is nearly as prestigious as the coveted “Egg Box Trophy” awarded at the club’s Music Quiz, which sadly won’t be featuring the “Evil” team this year due to holiday commitments.
On a warm Wednesday evening in Braintree this week, Angus Holford picked up the silver medal in the Essex 10,000m championships.
