Injury-hit Senior Men start first ever BAL Div 2 campaign with seventh place

10 Jun 2019

Chelmsford’s Senior Men’s team commenced their first ever season in Division 2 of the British Athletics League at Melbourne Park on Sunday, having gained promotion in 2018, and after only entering the league in 2015.  It was disappointing therefore, with the clear increased quality of competition on display, that the Chelmsford squad had been so decimated by injury leading up to the fixture, with over a dozen of their first-choice team on the side-lines with injury. 

Despite a bright start to the day, and supreme efforts by every member of what was by far the youngest team to feature in the match (featuring no less than TEN Under 20 athletes), the team ultimately ended the match in seventh place:

  1. Havering – 325.3
  2. Glasgow – 316
  3. Crawley – 290.3
  4. Kingston AC & Polytechnic – 286.3
  5. Bristol & West – 279
  6. Notts – 270
  7. Chelmsford – 221
  8. Herne Hill - 177
