Senior Men claim third place in final 2019 BAL match in Glasgow

05 Aug 2019

Chelmsford’s Senior Men’s team made the long trip to Glasgow over the weekend, for the final match of the curtailed, three-fixture, British Athletics League season – and after struggling in their first two matches, pulled off effectively their best ever result – a third place finish in a Division 2 BAL match.  Although previous results meant that the team ultimately ended the season in seventh place in the table, a terrific performance across the board, boosted by the return of some their previously side-lined injured stars, demonstrated that they can be very competitive at this level of athletics.

Given the fact that even with the return of some key team members, Chelmsford still needed to field a total of FIVE Under 17 athletes – compared with no other team having more than one – and a further three being Under 20 – the result, at Glasgow’s impressive Scotstoun Stadium was one of which the club can be hugely proud.

The final match score was:

  1. Glasgow City AC – 400
  2. Havering AC – 299
  3. Chelmsford AC – 274
  4. Kingston AC – 272
  5. Herne Hill Harriers
  6. Bristol & West AC – 228
  7. Notts AC – 225
  8. Crawley AC – 222
