Opening the T&F Season with a Warm-up Meet

On Thursday the clubs athletes embarked on the 2019 Track and Field season at Great Yarmouth. Traditionally a very cold opener and this meeting was no different! With rarely run races for the juniors the club had 6 new club records set and one so close it deserves a mention.

The club records came from James Burgess U13b breaking his own record in the 600m with a 1:48 and he set a new record 8.8 in the 60m, in the U15b Vaughan Beckham and Joel Burgess both ran the same time with 8.3 to set a new 60m record with Joel lowering his 150m time to 19.8. In the U15g Amber English picked up a good win and new record of 23.1 in the 150m and Abeni Beckham ran 22.1 to set a new 150m record for the U17w. Josh Smith narrowly missed out on the U13b Mile record running 5:55.0 missing out by just 0.06s.

Many new athletes competing for the first time did very well especially in such tough conditions, so well done to all!
