YDL LAG at Cardiff (MAY 2015)

Head Coach Chris Millard made the National Youth Development League the club’s priority this season, wanting to cement the Club’s standing as the top junior club in the Region.

First stop, South Wales.

A thoroughly disgusting day’s weather in Cardiff met Athletes and spectators alike. Wet, windy and cold. Not exactly summer weather, but an enjoyable day’s Athletics nonetheless. A second place finish to host club South Wales AC the reward for the small band of athletes who travelled across the bridge and braved the weather. A genuine opportunity for NSAC to win the league this year and return to the upper echelons. Event winners as follows;
