Senior team off to winning start in 2022 Southern Athletics League season

23 May 2022

Chelmsford AC returned to full Southern Athletics League action for the first time since 2019 on Sunday, visiting Gillingham, to take on Medway & Maidstone, Woking AC, and Windsor Slough Eton & Hounslow for the first match of the 2022 season.

In the last full SAL season in 2019, Chelmsford’s three opponents finished sixth, fifth and first in the Division 1 table respectively, so the team were well aware of the challenge ahead – especially with a squad weakened by injuries and exam absentees – but they pulled together exceptionally well, with juniors stepping up, and athletes covering non-specialist events in general, and their hard work and commitment was rewarded with a fine victory on the day, in a very close match.  The provisional result was:

  1. Chelmsford – 191.5
  2. Windsor Slough & Eton – 183.5
  3. Medway & Maidstone – 183
  4. Woking - 180
