2017-18 Met League: Young Athletes triumph!

Trent Park may have been at its muddiest worst but it was an excellent day for all that are involved with the club as the Young Athletes section carried off the Howard Williams Junior Trophy by just two points from Shaftesbury, with last year's overall winners, VPH, in third spot. Four other trophies were secured: Under 11 Girls, Under 13 Boys and Girls and Junior Men. Overall individual awards were won by Jimmy Geller (U13 B), Kai Boggon (U15B), Zahara Malcolm (U13G) and Joe Geller (U17M).

Several Woodford athletes have been in action indoors over the last couple of weeks. Amongst many decent performances Youcef Zatat’s season’s best in the Shot stood out.

Some of our talented Under 11 athletes represented their schools on a very cold, windy day at Chigwell Police Grounds, where the first ten across the line go on to represent their District in the Essex Schools in April.

The year 5 girls race, over 1500 metres, was a close affair with Molly Sherrin, the reigning Year 4 County winner, just holding off a determined effort from Hannah Hardy at the finish.

In the Year 6 girls race, also over 1500 metres, Rosemary Kelly took an early lead to sweep home a good winner with Molly Wain in second during the early stages to press home a determined 4th place.

2018 Essex Indoor T&F

The club's athletes produced some excellent performances over the weekend's Championships at Lee Valley. Medals and PB's were flowing like water going over the Niagara Falls.

On Saturday it was the field events and sprints that took centre stage for Woodford. In the Senior Men: Hugh Williams finished 5th in the Shot with 12m 68cm; Vicky Cuthbert threw 7m 65cm in the U/17 Women; whilst Charlie Reid recorded a good PB with a solid putt of 11m 13cm to finish just outside the medals in 4th.
