U13/15 YDL league at Burton

                                        YOUTH DEVELOPMENT ATHLETIC LEAGUE

Banbury Harriers under thirteen/fifteen Youth Development League squad completed their fixtures on Saturday at Burton and finished overall second in the division behind the clubs rivals in the Heart of England League, Coventry Godiva.

 Godiva as in the other two fixtures carried to much strength in depth to be threatened. The aim for Banbury was to finish in front of the host and clinch second place, this was achieved with an excellent all round team effort.

 The under fifteen boys although short in numbers, certainly produced a string of good performances. Seb Hartwell won his 200metre race, and a high jump of 1metre 60centre metres was too good for other clubs. His best came in winning the long jump with a personal best of 5m 51cm.

 Jake Stickley and Felix Noble also gained wins in their events and Ben Brown collected high points on the track in the 300metres and in both shot and discus.

 The four then produced good exchanges in the 4x100metre relay to win in a time just outside the club record.

 The girls in this age group also worked well as a team with several wins. The 75merte hurdles race did not produce a win, but Helen Dubber battled hard with Carly Bates of Coventry and both girls crossed the line recording the same time. The two relays produced wins for Banbury Harriers and club records. Dubber ran in both, joining her in the 4x100metres were Abbey Anson, Paige Cooper and Zoe Pollock in the 4x300metre, Rebecca Scott, Shannon Dawes and Lily Hamp.

 The under thirteen boys produced wins for Ollie Knox in the 1500m, Stanley Bull in the 800metres and wins for both Giano Winkler and Theo Williams in the 75metre hurdles.

In the girls both Emelina Darvill and Matilda Donaghy gained excellent points.
