Our next match for under 13′s – 15′s. is at Dartford details below. We have been doing great this year, but the key is full teams.
National Youth Development League – Match two under 13; s & 15’s– Dartford Saturday 1st JUNE 2013
The 2nd Youth Development match and the half way stage of the season for many of us. It’s a local event at Dartford hence we will not have a coach. So please make your own way there or team up with friends. Some field events start at 11.00, with the track following at 12.00. (last race is 17.00)
Please let us know your availability, we done well at Lewes, but were a bit thin on the ground with the under 13’s. So we need everyone.

Though still spaces left blank in some events, it was just as well we took our largest team out to Canterbury so far this season. We had to ask many of the boys and girls to step out of their comfort zones to cover events, and they returned with some very pleasant surprises in many areas.
Please check out the results on the KCAA web site www.kcaa.org.uk/ The two third places were excellent results against stiff opposition at a very crowded Invicta track. My thanks to all the parents who helped.
Please keep this momentum going and our next match is at Dartford on the 1st June, very much our rivals for promotion.
How come our youngsters done so well but we finished 4th out of 7?
It’s quite easy to explain, we had no throwers, also only 3 under 13 girls, and not as many under13 boy’s either. This was a great shame as the team performed fantastically, two of the local teams above us filled their team sheets, and Essex Beagles likewise who also had a very strong sprinter group (though they found out ours was better). Attached is the link for the results http://www.ukydl.org.uk/page10.html please check them out, as you will see the Bexley lads and lasses done us proud.
Our next match is the Kent Young Athlete league at Canterbury this coming Sunday 12th May. We will have a coach leaving at 9.15 from the usual place. Thanks to our officials John Askew & Dave Winfield & Tony Garrett as always. (Thanks also to Mitch’s Dad Graham for the photos and the parents who helped us on the day.)
I’m sure all the younger athletes had a great day today and there were some very good results from each of the age groups. From what I can see the U17 Men had the best performance coming a very good 2nd place overall in the borough challenge.

The first Kent Young Athletes League match of the season took place today (14th April) at Norman Park Bromley. Our youngsters were outstanding with the to be confirmed results showing 2nd for the boys, and the girls just being pipped for 2nd . Despite a large number of youngsters being unavailable and a few no shows. We still put up a fantastic performance. This will give us quite a headache with places in the team, being at a premium. Thanks to Stirling support from our officials and helpers- Liz, Kevin & Dawn, John G, Laura. Which ensured things could run without to many hiccups.
The headline performance from so many was, Cameron’s final leg on the 4×100 relay, they will be talking about at Norman Park for many years hence.
The results will be up shortly and will be found at the Kent website kcaa.org.uk
Special thanks to joint manager Tony Garret
This Sunday 14th April, we have our first league match at Norman Park. We are scheduled to cover field events at 11, 12 & 2, and would be very grateful if we can have official’s to cover at these times. Being the first match myself (Kevin) & Tony as team managers will be very busy organising & declaring our team, which includes many making their debuts for the club. Otherwise we have found it very difficult to officiate and team manage at the same time. If you are not an official still volunteer and we promise to help.
Thanking you in advance for your help
Kevin & Tony
