NATIONAL SPORTSHALL FINALS, MANCHESTER, 13TH & 14TH APRIL 2019 -
Congratulations to our Under-13 Boys team who became National Champions on Saturday.
Congratulations to our Under-15 Girls team who became National Champions on Sunday.
Congratulations to our Under-15 Boys team who were 2nd on Sunday.

Report from Graham Maxwell, the U13 Boys Team Manager:-

It was an amazing day with so much success for the boys both in the relays and individual events. The standard was also higher than I have seen at previous finals. Deji Bello from SLH jumped 7.79M in the triple Jump, a jump that would have won gold any other year yet another boy jumped 8.01! Andrew from HHH managed 65 in the Vertical jump but came away with Bronze, another jump that could have also won Gold previously.

Field results

  • ·         Standing Long Jump – Gold for Dante Clarke best jump 2.77m
  • ·         Standing Long Jump – Silver for Frank Bostock Westland best jump 2.59m
  • ·         Vertical Jump – Bronze for Andrew Barrett best jump 65
  • ·         Standing Triple Jump – Silver for Deji Bello best jump 7.79m
  • ·         Speed Bounce – Gold for William Odgers with 88 bounces

Individual Track Races

  • ·         2 Lap-  Silver for Deji Bello

This does not do the others justice by only looking at medallist. Luis Richardson made the 4 lap final against some fantastic athletes and finished 5th, Matthew Opoku only just missed out on the final coming 7th out of 22 boys. Dante Clarke won his heat and made the final of the 2 lap but as he was ill he could not run in the final or the relays later in the day. We also saw good races by Jacob Allen and Jacob Ashworth who finished 10th and 12th in the 6 lap out of 22 boys.

Track Relays

  • ·         Obstacle Relay – Gold  for Frank Bostock Westland, Andrew Barrett, William Ab Lowerth and Dwayne Francis
  • ·         4x1 relay – Won our heat and then secured a Silver medal in the final – Dwayne Francis, William Odgers, Frank Bostock Westland and Andrew Barret
  • ·         4x2 Relay – Won our heat and then came second in the final – Deji Bello, Matthew Opuko, William Odgers and Luis Richardson

 

SURREY OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD RANKINGS - With the outdoor season now getting underway we are starting to compile the ranking lists of performances by Surrey athletes in the standard events. Because of the number of Surrey athletes competing in the 10 age groups it is a sizeable task to keep them up to date. We are grateful to Paul Tunnicliffe who has volunteered to compile the Under-20 Women lists and to Jess Walters who has volunteered to compile the Under-17 Women lists. We are seeking further volunteers to take on the other age groups. Please contact Keith Burchell for further details.

SURREY RECORD - UNDER-20 MEN HAMMER - Competing in the Kingston & Poly Open Throws meeting held at Kingston on 6th April 2019, Sam Mace (Walton AC) set a new record of 64.07m. This was an improvement on the previous record of 64.02m which he set in June 2018.

SURREY INDOOR RECORD - SENIOR MEN 800M - Following the publication of an article in Athletics Weekly about Thomas Staines we note that he is a Surrey-qualified athlete (Born in Epsom and holds a British passport) currently living in the USA. Checking back on his past performances we discover that in 2018 he improved Philip Norgate's 1984 Indoor 800m of 1:48.39 when he ran 1:47.23 at Pittsburgh KS on 9th March. In 2019 he improved his record when, on 8th February, he ran 1:46.27 in Allendale, Michigan.

BOB HARVEY 1939 - 2019 - We are sorry to report the death, on February 24th 2019 aged 79 of Bob Harvey. Bob was a member of Croydon Harriers and featured in the Surrey top ten in five of the seven years from 1958 when he headed the U20 half mile list. The following year his senior county silver time of 1:52.0 placed him third in the rankings and 15th in the UK. He won the Surrey County Junior 880 yards and 1 Mile Steeplechase titles in 1958 and the Senior 880 yards title in 1962. As well as Army and Surrey County representation he was also selected to run for the Amateur Athletic Association, just below international level. In later years he was one of leading officers of the National Young Athletes League. PROFILE.

They operate a screening programme at a number of clinics around the UK and support this with mobile units that travel to other locations.
Full information about CRY and their services can be found on their website at www.c-r-y.org.uk. Young people between the age of 14 and 35 who would like to have cardiac testing can go to www.testmyheart.org.
You can also see www.uka.org.uk/governance/health-safety/cardiac-screening-for-athletes/ for information on work being done by UKA in this area.
Following the death of a young member of Croydon Harriers, Mike Fleet has been promoting this charity for several years and anyone wishing to have copies of his photographs has been asked to make a donation to CRY. Further, he has been exchanging for donations bookmarks signed by famous athletes to raise funds for this charity. We thank those of you who have shown your support in the past.

In particular, sets of County Championship results prior to 1980 are sought.
SURREY SCHOOLS ATHLETICS HISTORICAL INFORMATION - CAN YOU HELP? - Surrey Schools AA have had a request from Michael Stenning, as part of his family history research. He wants to know if his aunt, Iris Marshall, won the girls hurdles at Surrey Schools T&F at Motspur Park between 1934-39.
Another request for any old programmes from Surrey Schools in the 1934-39 period, and also for 1954 Surrey Schools T&F Champs. Please contact Peter Shilling.
SURREY ALL-TIME RANKINGS - We have compiled "All-time Rankings" based upon data we have for previous rankings. As these are incomplete it is possible that some performances have been missed - please contact Keith Burchell with any further performances that should be included. Performances are only eligible for athletes who were Surrey-qualified at the time of setting the performance. The names and clubs shown are those of the athlete at the time the performance was set.
RESULTS ARCHIVE- On this website you will find results of previous County Championships. To find out what is available then click on the buttons below:-
The Track & Field Championships database has recently had the complete results of the 2017 Main Championships plus the full results of the 1975 Championships included. This means that we now have full results for over 40 years available for you to access. Result sheets in the past did not show the first names of athletes so many are missing from the database.
