Keith Hunton the clubs Chairman and one of the coaches commented “winning the JHT Trophy for the fifth time is a remarkable achievement and I would like to thank all the athletes for their efforts but although it’s nice to win the medals we have to remember points are also awarded for those in the top 6 so every one of our athletes contributed to this success. And once again this success does not come without the commitment of all the coaches that put in many hours supporting these young athletes so thank you all”

There would be far too many athletes to mention individually but special mention to a few of the athletes, Kayleigh Watson, U13, who won two gold (75 & 150m) and a silver medal (Shot) but in the 150m broke the championship best performance, Oscar Doran, U13, who won three gold medals (75, 150 & long jump), Hatti Wigginton, SW, two gold (100 & 400 m hurdles) and finally Chris Williams, SM, 2 gold (high jump & discus) and silver (Javelin). Well done to all the competing athletes
