Delayed congratulations to the athletes that represented the club in the last NW Sportshall League match of 2016.

The club had 13 athletes representing, with Ellie, Sophie, Beth, Charlotte, Hannah and Katie in U11G, Chloe, Maddie, Martha and Jasmine in U13G and Harry, Gabriel and Aaron representing the U13B. Unfortunately there were no club athletes turned out in the U15B or U15G, nor in the U11B.

Scoring 135 points, the U11G team finished 5th in a tough and well attended age group. With 118 points, the U13G placed 4th, and the U13B placed 3rd with 83 points.

The final league tables have now been published, and sadly the club has no age group teams making it to the NW League finals for the first time in the club's history. The athletes that took part and scored points for their club and teammates should be very proud of their achievements, but small teams have often meant points have been dropped in relays and field events.

Top performing teams over the year were the U11G who scored 439 points, just 50 points off the 5th place that would have qualified them for the league final. Overall they finished in 7th place. Also close to the prize were the U13B team who placed 6th in their league, scoring 309 points (65 points off 5th place).

U11B finished 9th (140 points, 335.5 points off 5th), U13G were 9th (273 points, 213.5 points off 5th), U15G were also 9th (81 points, 283 points of 5th) and U15B placed 8th with 106 points (151 off 5th). A special "honourable mention" goes to Aidan who was the sole representative of the U15B for the club!

The full league table can be found here and detailed results from all three matches are on the Sportshall website here.

Thanks to all the athletes, parents, coaches, team managers and officials from the club that have supported the Sportshall League through this season - we can come bouncing back next season and see if we can get plenty of squads into the League Finals again!!
