First UKYDL UAG (u17/u20) Match April 30
A dry, cool, windy day at Hillingdon was supported by a small team of Team Dorset athletes for their first fixture (of four). Having no working P.A. system was a problem with no announcements, results or warnings. Due to problems with their computer and lack of staff, there are still no published results. Much time was lost adjusting hurdles, again due to lack of groundstaff. The steeplechase races had to be cancelled because the water jump level was too low and they had no-one capable of changing the hurdle heights. It was a mess – but it was probably their first major match of the season.
