Southern Menís League Ė Kings Park Ė 1 May 2010

Steve Snook reports.

Last Saturday saw Wimborne join forces with athletes from Poole and Weymouth to compete as Team Dorset in the first match of the Southern Menís League at Kingís Park in Bournemouth.

The majority of athletes in this match were from Poole, with one from Weymouth, and mostly young Ö at least in comparison to the three athletes from Wimborne!

Our stalwarts, three musketeers from the home for the athletically bewildered, played their part in a tightly contested match, which ended up with us drawing with Chichester for second spot, a mere 11 points away from the winners Radley.

Our three musketeers were Steve Snook, Glyn Davies and Dave Pearson. Steve shrugged off any tiredness from lack of training to get team points in Hammer, 400 Hurdles, and 1500, while Glyn yet again overcame the pain barrier turning (no pun intended) in a performance in Discus grabbing 2nd place in the B string. However, Master of the Match, for Team Dorset, was Dave who came away with a win in the 110 Hurdles, a sparky first leg of the 4x100, a leap to second place in the Long Jump and a stylish, if leisurely, 3000m steeplechase.

It goes without saying (but Iíll say it anyway) that matches donít run themselves and we are always very grateful for all the support and help we get from those who come along to the matches. On this occasion, providing much needed moral support and, officiating were Trudi Carter and Peter Impett. Thank you both.

Our next match in this league is a couple of weeks away Ė a long trip to Plymouth on Saturday 15th May.
