West Midlands Young Athletes League at Warley Woods on Sunday, 19 November 2017

Twelve U11 boys turned out to tackle the hilly course, many finding the going much more demanding than at Hatton, resulting in the team finishing in 6th place and dropping down three places in the league. However, I see this performance as a blip and feel sure that they can climb the league table over the remaining 3 fixtures.

Ash Burgess 7th, Oliver Hurd 18th, Charlie Smith 38th, Jack Hendley Smith 69th and Harvey Graham 90th were team counters ably supported by Kristian Corbin 94th, Simeon Swain 100th, Joe O’Connor 114th, Irtiza Ahmad 127th, Jacob Bennett 129th, Henry Baker Yearwood 132nd, and George Astbury 135th. In the individual rankings Ash is 8th and Oliver 10th.

Kristian, Joe, Irtiza and Jacob were making their debut for Birchfield Harriers.

The U13 Boys lying in 4th league position on the day came home in 3rd place just 8 points behind league leaders Rugby & Northampton and are now placed 3rd in the league. Alex Dickson 8th, Jensen Peak 13th, Christian Chapajong 23rd, Alex Cook 24th, Archie England 27th, Will Finlay 33rd, Daniel Hawes 58th, Ben Ferguson 67th and Rohan Patel 94th are a team that can rise further up the table. In the individual rankings Jensen is 8th and Alex Dickson is 10th.

There was no stopping Birchfield’s U15 Boys team as they increased their lead in the league table to a very comfortable 113 points. Ryan Sheilds 2nd Dylan King 3rd, Alex Stapleton 4th, Sam McFall 11th, Conal Smith 13th, Jordan Fisher Brindle 36th, Henri Bedford 43rd, Kyle Corbin 47th and Zac Wagenfuhrer, making his first appearance this season in 81st position.

There are also four U15 boys in the first 8 individual rankings.

The U17 men six of whom will be eligible to compete in the same age group in 2018/19 continue to hold their ground in 6th league place with a slightly improved points total. Nathan Casey 20th, came out just in front of Michael Gayle 25th again followed closely by Jarred Malcom Roberts 27th, Hugo Villabos Finigan 29th , Dan Swain 30th, Ben Prince 33rd, Silas Goshawk 49th and Noah Cook 67th.

On balance the teams had a successful day with all but the U11’s making progress.

The fact that we now have many U11’s competing for their first season means that their level of performance will improve as the season unfolds.
