SCVAC League, Kent Divisions, Medway Park, Gillingham – 16th July 2018

The final match of this season took place on a warm cloudy evening. The men’s team again consisting of club members aged 50 and over finished 4th in the match beating both Bexley B and Sevenoaks AC by 1 point. Thus retaining 3rd place in the league. While the gallant effects of the three ladies in the Women’s team resulted in the team finishing 3rd in the match and 3rd in the league.

In the Men’s 100m Mark Woods finished 2nd in the M35(A) race in 12.9s and Trevor Crysell 3rd in the M35(B) race in 14.1s. The M50 100m was won by Trevor Simms in 13.5s. Mark Woods won the M35 Discus with a throw of 23.11m, with Trevor Crysell finishing 3rd in the M50 Discus with 17.22m. In the M35 Long Jump Mark Woods jumped 4.02m to finish 3rd and Trevor Crysell won the M50 Long Jump with 4.60m. In the M60 Long Jump David Perman (yes the hammer thrower) managed to get his feet off the ground and land in the sand finish to secure 3 match points in 5th place.

In the Woman’s match Julie Woods won her three events the W50 100m in 18.5s, W50 Long Jump with 2.83m and the W50 Discus with 12.12m. In the W60 Discus Janet Duffin was 3rd with a throw of 6.92m. Fiona Townend in her first track and field match started with a 3rd place in the W35(A) 800m with a time of 3m 16.3s, then 2nd in the W35(A) 100m in 17.0s. The Team Manager coxed Fiona into jumping the W35 Long Jump where she finished 2nd with 3.12m and throwing the W35 Discus, finishing 3rd with 10.09m, with some quick coaching by Mick Duffin.

I would like to thank all the athletes that have competed in some or all of the five matches this season.
