Youth Development League Match 1


successful day at Blackpool with some fabulous performances in the first meeting. A great team effort with some great results even in some some of the events that people weren’t that keen to do.

Thank you to Steve, George, Sarah, John, Carl, Laura for officiating and a special mention for Jess who did really well in her first meeting officiating field events after passing her level one officials course.
Thanks to the parents too, we do appreciate you bringing them and giving them such great support.
We finished fourth, and it was great to see so many boys competing.
