Chingford league relay results attached....a good turnout with 4 Mens teams, 1 Womens, 1 @ U15s and 3 @ U13s teams. The Barnet Senior Men had a convincing win over our own Vets team, who in fariness were missing some key runners...
The Vet men lost out to Orion Vets and have had to pass the trophy over to Orion after a 4 year reign. The Womens team were narrowly defeated (2 secs) by Eton Manor and in doing so Eton Manor claimed the overall Womens title.
On a positive note John Murphy, running last leg of the D team, had a storming run beating Richard McCormick by 1 second in a time of 10.42. The results organiser, Bob Jousiffe gave me a call in the evening to say John had in fact saved our Vets team and we had beaten Orion.
Unfortunately I had to put him straight, John had arrived on his bike an hour late thinking it was a 2.30pm start, Alex Horton had stepped in to run another leg to make the team up. Still a moment of glory for John.
Next season....must do better...we need to get back to winning as a team. Richard
