Fourth for Sussex at Chelmsford

Sussex did well, by placing fourth, with their depleted senior team at the South East Inter-counties match at Chelmsford on Sunday.

Bolstered by a string of Under 20 athletes Sussex scored 671 points behind winners Essex who scored 782 points, Kent who scored 707 points and Middlesex 686 points. All teams, apart from the Hosts, struggled to field represented teams with Hampshire only sending women to the match and Surrey not managing to get a team at all.

The results look more like an area League match and there were plenty of empty lanes.

Slaughter sets record at Sutton

While the youngsters provided the numbers of competitors it was 60 year Brian Slaughter who provided the records at the Sussex Combined Events championships at Sutton over the weekend.

Slaughter from Eastbourne Rovers has been a fixture of the Sussex athletics scene for the past forty years and he has always been a force in whatever age group he is in.

Slaughter, who had won the National M60 Decathlon title at Sheffield the previous weekend with 7,075 points, where he also beat American opponent in the Biannual UK/USA match.
