YDL – Lower Age Group, Match 4

The final match in the Youth Development League for the lower age group took place on Saturday at the UCLan Sports Arena in Preston.

Well done to all the junior athletes who took part as they ended up with a great 2nd place on the day, beating Preston by 1 point. That leaves Harriers finishing in 3rd place overall in the final league standings, only 1 point behind Preston and the qualifying spot for the National Finals. There is still one spot in the finals up for grabs though following the outcome of a planned paper match between the 3rd placed teams.
