Youth Development League Round-Up

Its been an exceptional year for the Club’s Track & field teams. Both the Lower Age group (under 13 and under 15) and the Upper Age group progressed to the Regional play-offs. Whilst both narrowly missed out on promotion, an amazing effort.

YDL LAG @ SWINDON
What a high level event this was. Seven teams going hammer and tongs, the positions changing almost every event! In the end the team from NSAC missed out on promotion by just 41 points (with a total of 484). A great day’s athletics, and as usual superb support for the young athletes from NSAC Officials, Team managers and parents. Winners on the day (SOOO many 2nd and 3rd places!);

The management team very excited to note that next year sees around 20 Year 9 athletes added to the squad, which should make NSAC even more competitive for the 2020 season!
