UAG YDL - Match 2

Absolutely delighted with our performances & contributions to the Team on a Day that was not ideal from a weather perspective : warm, windy and rain at times!

Troy - doing a great job for the team as an U17 racing against U20s in the 100m/200m and achieving two PBs. The only Stockport Harrier Throwing Discus in the U17M age group!! That says it all and the coaching group is delighted with his attitude to competing for his local athletics club and the progress he is making through Competition.

Sam - 3 PBs out of 4 events!! Need I say more. Congratulations Sam! I should really: 400mH achieved in an uncompetitive race; 200m PB achieved in an absolute downpour; Discus PB off the back of very little training in the event and a near High Jump PB off even less training in it! Fabulous from Derbyshire's top octathlete from last year!

Lauren - An endurance athlete asked to do two 300m, a Discus Throw & Javelin throw with an U20 Javelin. Fabulous speedwork, strength work .......... LONG TERM ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT! Remains a great role model in so many different ways within the group.

Luke - Contributed team points in the Long Jump & Shot and in a very tactical race came second in the 1500m (an improvement of two places from round 1). Having a great first T&F season with the group and deserves every success because of his total commitment to train & compete!

Harry - The only U17 to be selected to compete for Greater Manchester this year in the Octathlon in the regional ESAA Combined Events regional finals, got a good Hurdles PB and gained points for the team in the Long Jump & Javelin. The Group is very proud of Harry. Being able to do 8 events to a good & getting better standard, is great credit to him!
