Trafford Senior Men Promoted to Division 3 of BAL: Full Report
BAL Match 3 Report, Saturday 15th July, Bedford
Distance talent Danny Lawton made his BAL debut in the first ‘big day out’ for the league, with all divisions competing on the same day in the same place. Below you can find results, highlights, and information about the next match. Full results are available on Power of 10, whilst photos and videos are up on the Trafford Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Trafford.athletic.club/).
Big Saturday turned into a tremendous day for the team. We won, making it three team victories out of three! This guarantees our promotion to Division Three with one match in hand! We were 17 points ahead of Nene Valley, who have been our closest competitors throughout the season. Bedford is very close to Nene Valley’s base, so this was probably their strongest turnout.
George Hurst set yet another PB in the 400 H, going below 63 s for the first time. In the previous two B races that time would have seen him chasing the lead, however this race was particularly quick.
In an exciting High Jump, Dean Ferris jumped higher than ever before. Given the little training prior to competition, he appears to have much potential for the event. Rivi recalled that he used to do slam dunks for breakfast and seems keen to break into the High Jump team. Rivi’s win in the 100 A in a rapid time provided exciting spectating.
Sanchez Nguie once again bettered his 100 time. He must now be wondering how low into 11 s he can go.
Joel won his 400 and 200 impressively and anchored the 4x400 team to a convincing victory. His times are consistently close to his best. It will be interesting to see if he can break 22 s again this season.
Running in the same race, Danny and Dave applied themselves very well in the 1500. Danny threw in a 60 s last lap to win and Dave was only slightly slower to win the B (Dave had smashed the 800 A earlier, winning with a last lap of 55 s!).
Sergii’s hammer throw was his best of the season and won the A by a country mile. This was in addition to victory in the Discus A, 2nd in the Pole Vault A with a season’s best and 2nd in the shot B.
Will and Jerell were commanding in the 110 H, both clocking very respectable times. Can they make it three wins out of three at the next match?
The fourth and final match is Sunday 20th August in Portsmouth. There will be a team photo after the final event, so scrub up and bring your vest.
