With the extremely sad news of the passing of Miv Owen only days before, Chelmsford’s Senior team went into their Southern Athletics League match at Melbourne Park on Sunday determined to put on a performance of which their Senior Men’s Team Manager would be proud. And they did just that – taking on the substantial challenge of last year’s league runners-up, Blackheath & Bromley, and ultimately coming out clear winners on the day.
The final match score was:
1. Chelmsford - 245
2. Bracknell - 193
3. Blackheath & Bromley - 191
4. Reading - 128
The team’s victory was all the more pleasing for the fact that with several key senior athletes out with injury, the club demonstrated their strength in depth and excellent youth development, as the course of the match was undoubtedly decided by the performance of both new recruits and rising stars from the Junior ranks – all of whom achieved impressive Personal Best performances during the day.
