SAL Match 5 – Dartford, 20 Aug 2016

Radley’s senior team travelled to its final SAL match in Dartford on Sat 20 Aug.

Lack of availability of athletes meant the team was only 16 athletes strong (including 6 masters athletes) across both genders and this was therefore always going to be a struggle to fill every event (2 per event) against the top 2 teams in the league. Despite this the athletes there covered as much as they could and rallied around, showing great team spirit to muster as many points as possible. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough and the team came 4th on the day with only 143 points.

SAL Match 1 – Peterborough, 16 April 2016

Radley AC made the long trip to Peterborough for their first SAL fixture of 2016 having returning to the top division (Div 1) this year.

The fixture was always going to be a tough one with the overall league winners at home (Nene Valley) as well as Colchester who finished 5th last year, whilst the other team (Harrow) was promoted along with Radley but as winners of Div 2W last year.

Radley rallied around to put a team together despite exams and injuries taking its toll and the efforts of the athletes that were there paid off.
