Super SAL Saturday, Southampton

What an Super SAL Saturday.

Such a great bunch of people.

I was rather nervous about today. Southampton at home

Chelmsford top 3.  Thames Valley who are 6th.

To secure our league position next year we needed at least 2nd and a healthy bunch of match points.

Team orders were given on the bus.

Have fun or stay on the bus. It would be safe to same fun was had.

By the half way point of the match and to my horror we were joint 1st with Southampton.

Towards the end of the match Southampton pulled ahead. We finished with a magnificent 2nd place and 216 match points. A great great result…. no a huge result.

We will have to wait to hear the other results. But it looks good for BAC.

Thanks to you all for making this year such a wonderful experience. Jemma and I were chatting after the match and agree that you are a very unusual but lovely bunch of people.

I never thought of athletics as a team event until I experienced the SAL. What a team.

Thank you!
