Our small teams of two women and six men, plus one guest competitor, both finished third in Division 2 of the Southern Masters League at Ashford on Monday evening. Barring any disaster we will be promoted to Division 1 in the men’s league and will remain in Division 2 in the women’s league for next season. There was much to applaud at Ashford, including wins in the M50 400m for the industrious Mark Woods and in the M60 hammer for over-75 Mike Duffin. There was also the return to competition after many years of David Perman (M60) with a guest appearance in the hammer that would have won the competition in the absence of Mike. However, the 27 points acquired by our two-woman team was highly impressive and leaves a slim mathematical chance of promotion still to fight for in the final match – which is at Medway Park, Gillingham on Friday 15th July.
