After a disappointing result in their previous fixture at Harrow, Chelmsford’s Senior Men and Women journeyed to Southampton for their last match of the season knowing that only a freak set of results would effect their retention of the Southern Athletics League title. And as has so often been the case this season, the absence of some key members of the team meant that they were unable to claim the victory that would have been their own minimum requirement.
Facing a strong home team, and a Bournemouth AC team who compete in Division 1 of the British Athletics League, ultimately Chelmsford had to settle for a third place finish on the day:
- Southampton AC – 236
- Bournemouth AC – 216
- Chelmsford AC – 170
- Thames Valley Harriers – 143
