Cracking victory for Horsham.

The second of this season’s Upper Age Group matches in the Youth Development League at the weekend produced a flurry of English Schools Standards but paradoxically a competition for teams has produced a myriad of individual results but as yet on one team result is to hand.

That was a superb victory by the Horsham Blue Stars at Erith in “North East Two”.

Fast times at Withdean and Look ahead.

The Upper Age group of the Youth Development League take centre stage this weekend when they line up for their second match of the season at venues across the Southern Counties.

In Premier Two Crawley will be competing at Reading while in South West One A both Team Sussex and Brighton & Hove undertake the long journey to Poole for their match.
Horsham Blue Star will be in action at Bexley for their North East Two match while Chichester head out to Southampton for their South West Two match.

Sussex Schools Combined Events Championships

Calling all would be Jessica Ennis-Hill's and Daley Thompson's - the Sussex Schools Combined Events Championships take place at K2, Crawley on Wednesday 27th May. For year 7 athletes there is a quadrathlon (Hurdles, Long Jump, Shot and 800m). For Years 8/9 and 10/11, athletes add the High Jump to complete a pentathlon. This event is during the May half term and parents and athletes can enter themselves - it does not have to come via the school.

Sub 1:50 800m at Withdean?

The annual Brighton Phoenix Open meeting at Withdean on Wednesday evening hopes to produce many personal bests, particularly, in the “B.M.C 800 metre races”.

Included in the “A” race will be both Robbie Fitzgibbon and Spencer Thomas, who have both been selected to run for the Great Britain in the Loughborough International meeting on Sunday.
All these races are paced, to produce fast times, and Thomas, who clocked 1:50.89s indoors back in February it aiming to crack 1:50.

Opening Victory for Crawley

The Crawley youngsters made a tremendous start to their second year in Southern Premier 2 of the UK Youth Development League (Lower Age Group) at Crawley’s K2 stadium on Saturday.
Life is always tough for the smaller, out of London Clubs in the Premier Leagues.

Less than sixty points covered all six teams and it was very much like the General Election where the result was in or will be in doubt until the final moment.

Winning Debut for Crawley

Newly promoted Crawley stepped up to Division one of the Southern Athletics League match at Portsmouth and romped away with their first match. Liberally sprinkled with many of their British League athletes, the Crawley club amassed 265 points, nearly 100 points more than the Southampton team’s total of 165 with the home club scoring 152 and reigning League champions Brighton & Hove on 143 points.

The home team win the Battle of Hastings

Four Sussex teams were lined up to face Holland Sports from Kent in this Division 3 SW it was the Hastings team who swept away the challengers notching up a marvellous total of 285 points for a convincing victory.

East Grinstead scored 198 in seconds place after a match long battle with Horsham Blue Star who scored 185, Lewes/Haywards Heath 152 and Holland Sports 125.
