Firstly we have just had confirmation that Chris Jones CEO of England athletics is visiting Yate and District AC on Tuesday evening 26th September 2017! There is no set format, he will arrive before 7.00 pm and be escorted around looking at our facilities, watching training, meeting coaches and athletes alike. I appreciate some groups are on a break but it would be great to have the track looking busy if possible. Photos and an article will then appear in the EA news letter in the near future. Please support this evening if you can
Due to the British Target Sprint championships taking place this Saturday 9th September on the athletics track, there will not be the club training session from 11.00 am – 12.30 pm.
The only session taking place on Saturday is the Lodge Sports session from 10.00 -11.00 on the Astro.
Why not come along and support Josh Snook & Katie Robins in their first British Target Sprint National Championship Final.
Best of luck to our Yate and District AC team competing in the last Avon Track and Field League match at Gloucester on Sunday 10th. All support is very welcome as we aim to try and win the league for the third Year in a row. This year is very close and could go either way between us and Team Bath who are nip and tuck at the top.
One Item of news that slipped through the net during the holiday season was the winning of the Midland league title with our joint Yate/B&W team, only a year after getting promotion to Div 1 !!! I remember last year everyone having real concerns we may not be able to stay up! This is a real credit to our team effort filling spaces great performances and support from officials and families! Attached is Matts report for the day.
Thank you to Matt Muggeridge who has been team manager for this and many years before his hard work both on and off the track is really appreciated and with this division win, his GB vest this year and recent no 1 ranking, it great to see his efforts being reward both on and off the track too!!!
So here is the report From Matt
