England U15/17 Championships – Bedford, 20/21 August

 Three of our young athletes won medals at the England U15/17 championships:
Kimberley Reed took the gold in the U17 women’s Hammer with a throw of 52.76m and also finished 8th in the Discus with 33.61m.

In the Under 15 Boys 400m Ben Robbins was 2nd with a magnificent time of 50.18 taking a second off his pb and placing him second on the Scottish U15 all time list. In most years Ben’s performance would have easily won the title.
