Essex League: County qualifiers

Jimmy and Nathan Essex League 1A hardy bunch of young athletes travelled to a bleak and cold Horseheath in Cambridge  for the 22nd Essex League, not a race Woodies normally participate in, but with the first 7 U13 -U17s automatically qualifying for the SEAA inter-counties in Oxford in December, for an Essex vest it's well worth the trip.

Cambridge and Coleridge, the organisers, also put on an U11 race and we had two young ladies, Emilia Berni and Molly Wain, placing 10th and 11th respectively.

U13s win 1500m at Tom Pink

Tom Pink 2017 2

We would like to congratulate those of our Young Athletes who competed in the Tom Pink competition that was held at Lea Valley on 2nd October. With only a handful of Woodford Green athletes present at the event, they did the club proud by picking up several medals in the field events. But most notable were the U13 Boys, who won the "Keeping Up With Mo" 1500m track event. The U13 Girls also performed outstandingly, getting through to the final only to fall short of a medal - but a great achievement nonetheless.

Over 7.5K, he finished 3rd in a good quality field.

Adam will spend the winter focusing on his April goal of the Commonwealth Games in Australia, having qualified to represent Northern Ireland in the steeplechase there.
