SOUTHERN ATHLETIC LEAGUE - SWINDON
WSEH AC travelled to Swindon on Saturday for their first ever competition in the combined Mens/Ladies Southern Athletic League. The local club went into the match as overall champions of the now disbanded Southern Mens League and Southern Womens Leagues and were placed in Division 3 of the established Southern League. It is thus perhaps not surprising that WSEH were runaway victors in the match by some 100 plus points over their closest rival host club Swindon Harriers.
1. WSEH AC 257pts
2. Swindon Harriers 148pts
Alder Valley Boys League – TVAC
There were too many gaps in the WSEH team due to the overlap with the football/rugby season for WSEH to offer a meaningful challenge in the opening fixture in the Alder Valley Boys League match at Eton on Saturday, and the local club finished 4th of the six competing clubs behind surprise winners Camberley & District AC.
Some 350 athletes descended upon the Thames Valley Athletics Centre on Saturday to compete in the WSEH AC Spring Open Meeting. There was a large contingent of local athletes present anxious to register performances that would gain them places in the Club teams in the league competitions that lie ahead.
BRACKNELL AC YOUNG ATHLETES OPEN MEETING

In the Under 13 Girls age group Madison Goodliff took gold in the Long Jump with a leap of 4m10. Newcomer Lucy Hall impressed in the 1000m with a silver award in a time of 3m32.75.
