Chelmsford AC went into the second actual match of this year’s curtailed British Athletics League programme at Kingston on Saturday looking to improve on their disappointing start to the season in their home fixture last month. Despite still being without a number of the athletes who took them to promotion from Division 3 last season, the team were buoyed by the earlier than expected return of former GB Juniors international high jumper Tom Hewes.
Again, however, Chelmsford’s forced reliance on so many juniors, and athletes covering their non-specialist events meant that despite a great team spirit and strenuous efforts throughout the team, they struggled in the face of the obvious quality of the Division 2 opposition, and ended the day in eighth place:
- Kingston AC & Polytechnic – 325
- Glasgow City AC – 297
- Crawley AC – 289
- Havering AC – 281
- Notts AC – 262
- Herne Hill – 252
- Bristol & West - 237
- Chelmsford - 224
