Can you help? Print

As the outdoor track season is nearing the end, with the lower YDL completed and just 2 more Cheshire T&F matches to come, we should take time to say "Thank you" to Emma Scott and Rachel Wilson for their time, effort and dedication as Team Managers this year.

Unfortunately for us, both Team Managers won't be able to do that role for us next year, so the club is looking for some keen volunteers to take their places for both the winter Sportshall programme and for the outdoor Track & Field season next year.

Without team managers in place, the club wouldn't be able to enter the various leagues, and our young athletes would miss out on the chance to compete.

We are looking for people with energy and enthusiasm to lead and inspire the young athletes to achieve the great things that we know they are capable of. Over the years the Club has been very fortunate to have parents with these qualities to come through and take on team management and other roles within the club, and we are always on the lookout for those who can help us.

If you think you might be able to help out, please drop a line to Bill Smith ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or any of the other officials at our training sessions.

 
Success for endurance squad at Cheshire Championships Print
Written by Website   
Thursday, 28 May 2015

The Frodsham-based endurance squad reaped the benefits of their hard training throughout the winter with 7 medals at last weekend's Cheshire County Championships.

Richard McGeachie (U20 - 3000m gold, 800m silver), Jacob Birtles (U15 - 800m gold) and Chris Larkin (U17 - 3000m bronze, 1500m steeplechase silver, high jump silver and triple jump silver) all set PBs and club records in their events on Saturday and Sunday, with Richard's battling display in the 3000m and Jacob's dominant 800m run being particular highlights in the glorious weather on the Saturday.

Whilst the athletes are the ones running the events and taking the glory Nick Massey as coach to the squad should also be singled out for his dedication and hard work with this squad too!

In addition to Richard, Chris and Jacob, Luke Southerton was the only other Harrier to compete in the weekend's championships, unfortunately overstepping the take off on each of his jumps and missing out at an excellent chance at the gold medal.

It was disappointing to see such few entrants this weekend, with no female competitors at all.  Perhaps athletes and parents could feed back to coaches and team managers to see whether there were any underlying reasons for the low turnout?

Full results are now available on the Powerof10 website and on the Greater Manchester AA website.

Cheshire League results Print

Friday, 15 May 2015

The official results haven't yet been sent out, but we've got a draft copy of the results showing some outstanding performances!

29 athletes made up our team.

The U11G team of 5 girls was made up of Abby, Alexandrea, Isabella, Jasmine and Milly and in the same age group 7 boys (Dominic, Ewan, Gabriel, Jack, Joseph, Matthew and Will) took to the track.  Highlights in the U11 age groups in the 600m included Ewan's 1:55.6, narrowly missing out on the U11 club record, and Jasmine's fine 2:10.4s.

The U13B team comprised Daniel, Jadon, Jamie, Josh and Lewis, with Mia being the sole representative for U13G.  With a host of new events on the table for new U13s, several new PBs were set across the teams.

In the U15B, Jacob and Luke provided a 2-man team, with Jacob putting in the performance of the day, cruising to a Grade 3, PB and new club record in the 1500m with a time of 4m31.6.  Luke's leap of 5m24 was also a graded result, achieving a Grade 4.

6 girls made the U15G team, with Abby, Alex, Charlotte, Rachel, Skye and Sophie putting in solid performances across the board, and scoring good points for the club.

Chris, Matthew and Matt competed in the Senior Men's age group, giving Chris in particular the chance to cover the longer 3000m distance for the first time, in a good time of 10m01.01s and second place, as well as equalling his PB to take second place in the senior men's high jump, despite actually being U17.  Matthew also produced his finest 800m race, with a 3 second PB over 800m in 3m07.1s.

When the official results are published we'll keep you posted - well done to everyone!!

 
YDL (Lower) - Bangor - 2nd May Print
Written by Website   
Wednesday, 06 May 2015

Six U15 athletes made the trip to Bangor last weekend to start their participation in the Youth Development League in cold and wet conditions on Sunday.

Skye, Alex, Rachel and Isla made up the U15 girls team, whilst Jacob and Luke represented the boys.

With such small numbers making up the team, it was difficult to score too many team points (especially with no U13s making the trip) but everyone that did put in some great performances, taking on disciplines which weren't necessarily their strengths to maximise the points scores.

Performance highlights included the new club record for U15B long jump by Luke (5m43cm)!

Let's try to get a bigger turnout at the next YDL Lower meeting which is on 30th May, closer to home at Warrington.

 
Guide to the Track & Field season Print
Written by Website   
Thursday, 16 April 2015

Image result for track and fieldEach year we update this "guide to the T&F season" to make the outdoor Track & Field season a little more understandable to new athletes and parents joining the club!!

The new Track & Field season is nearly underway, with Open meetings, YDL meetings and Cheshire T&F meetings showing in the calendar for the coming weeks and months.

Athletics is both an individual and team sport, and this is reflected in the fixtures throughout the year. There are some fixtures that Team Managers would like all athletes to turn out for, some that rely on selection as there are only a few places available, and others which athletes are encouraged to take part under their own initiative.

Above all, athletics is about more than just training - competing for the club, or for yourself at an Open Meeting, isn't just about trying to win (though that is a great feeling!!), it's also about showing how you have developed and progressed - nothing makes the coaches and team managers more delighted than seeing a young athlete break through their personal bests, no matter what position they come in the competition. So don't be put off from representing the club and turning up to a T&F meeting because you don't think you can win - every PB you get is a win, and every PB you just miss is a close second!!

Last weekend Jacob Birtles took the title of Northern Athletics Indoor U15B 800m Champion at the Sheffield EIS, making the most of his winter training in his first 800m races of the season.

After cruising through the preliminary heat, Jacob ran the second fastest time in the country so far this year winning the final in 2m09.31s, with the runner up from Sheffield finishing in 2m17s some way behind.

Congratulations!!

 
T&F records 2014 Print
Written by Website   
Tuesday, 27 January 2015

28 Track & Field club records were set last year by the teams and individuals that represented the club across a variety of local, national and schools competitions.

Helped a little by the introduction of new weights for some of the girls throws, in 2014 the club website lists 3 U11 boys records, 2 U11 girls records, 1 U13 boys record, 8 U15 boys records, 4 U15 girls records, 5 U17 boys records (all by Ben Sutcliffe!), 3 U17 girls records (all by Jenny Pyattt!), and 1 record for the U20 men.

Already in 2015 Richard McGeachie has brought down his Delamere parkrun record to 17m29s - but which will be the first true T&F record to go this year?
