YDL Lower, Trafford – Sun 21st April

With a huge number of athletes chasing performances via open meetings, the club were confident that the team would be competitive in the opening YDL meeting at Trafford.

The sun came out and there was a tail wind for the sprinters and our athletes exceeded our expectations with a convincing victory by over 100pts despite a slow start with no pole vaulters, no U15B hurdles and 1 x U15B Hammer thrower.

There were some exceptional performances and with a home match next up and a few more athletes available we are hopeful of another strong performance.
