I am able to now confirm the dates and locations of the National Athletics League (NAL) matches for 2021. The NAL is for Senior and U20 Men and Women. There is a slight change to the info I posted before and that means a change to a Sunday (unfortunately) for our trip to Manchester for the opening match.
The four fixtures are now:
Sun 16-May SportCity, Manchester
Sat 5-Jun King’s Park, Bournemouth
Sat 3-Jul Chelmsford
Sun 8-Aug Bedford
Our home match in June is currently dependant on the track being re-laid and the second LJ/TJ being built. (This is very much in the council’s plans with the tender for the works currently in progress). The full NAL Structure and Fixture List is below.
This is a “Plan A” approach to the NAL where the Covid-19 situation allows this “normal” shape of competition to go ahead. There is also a “Plan B” (smaller meetings, more local travel) and even a “Plan C” to attempt to cater for alternative situations.
Myself and Amy Spencer will be managing the Bournemouth AC NAL team and we look forward to seeing some new faces as well as many familiar ones in the team for 2021 as we aim to go out there and “smash it” in our usual BAC way.
Any queries about the league – please contact me.
Stay Safe and Train Hard,
