BAL Premiership

Amidst torrential downpours and strong winds at Sheffield's Don Valley Stadium on Sunday, WGwEL's men produced a solid all-round team performance in placing third, behind NEB and Birchfield, in the first BAL Premiership meeting of the season. Woodford's team, which had a number of younger athletes making their BAL debuts as well as experience elsewhere, were led off to a fine start in the meeting's first event, the hammer, as Andy Frost and Mark Dry took a double victory.

Andy who relinquished his position as Britain's number one last year as he struggled following knee surgery, reaffirmed his position last week with a 70.36m effort, and confirmed that form as he took victory in the rain with 69.10m. Andy was ably backed up by debutant Mark who took the "B" event with a fine personal best of 68.32m - the best of three p.b's Mark threw during the competition. It was the hammer, together with the other throws, that laid the foundation for Woodford's team performance.
