On a warm Wednesday evening in Braintree this week, Angus Holford picked up the silver medal in the Essex 10,000m championships.
Canaan Solomon has been selected over 800m for the GB & NI team for the European U/20 Championships to be held in Grosseto, Italy, July 20-23.
With the London Diamond League in the Olympic Stadium on Sunday, and the SAL on Saturday, there was limited other action from Woodford athletes over the weekend, but there was notably a further improvement of the Club 3000m s/ch record from Adam Kirk-Smith, and another personal best for Che Richards.
Woodford finished a close second in the fourth SAL of the season at Hemel Hempstead, behind Basildon but ahead of Harlow. Watford, who had gone into the match as highest placed in the division (4th) could finish only fourth ahead of the Enfield&Haringey/Hawcs team and hosts Vale of Aylesbury. While WGEL won a third of the events contested, the almost complete team sheet of Basildon proved just too much to overcome.
