Fantastic team spirit
As ever the relays proved to be the highlight of the day as the teams really pulled together to gain valuable points.
A big thank you to Lesley Hall for supporting as an official and all the parents that gain new skills helping with the field events.
These results from both the boys and the girls being even more remarkable , with the fact we have had no training facilities on a 400m running track all season , for all the track and field disciplines due to work being completed at the Stadium.
Well done everyone
Our next match is on August 6th at Tonbridge --
