At the other end of the age spectrum, in the Bucks Schools championships at Milton Keynes, 12 year old Archie Goodliff also claimed No 1 spot in the UK with his winning effort in the Javelin with a excellent 44m94, extending by some 3m, the WSEH Club Record set by Jude Compton Stewart some 3 years ago.
Mens British Athletics League Div 1 Southampton

Nonetheless a 4th place on the day still leaves WSEH in the promotion places, with 2nd place overall, with 2 matches remaining.
