Welcome to the winter season. Cross country and sportshall meetings

    begin in October and we are already preparing our athletes for

    competition, lets hope we can be as successful as last year with 15 of our athletes competing for the county in a variety of events.


Coaches for this season have been decided upon. Diane Newman will take

    over as head coach for the under 11’s replacing Lisa with the help of Lucy Murray, Lucy Watts, Flo Humphries, Clare Thompson, Chris Debney and

    Sarah Avenell.

Under 13 Sportshall will be with Jon Axon and Dave Strange,

    Under 15 / Under 7 and under 13 Cross country will be with Pete Godwin

    and Andy Smith

    Under 11 professional group Joy Trigg and Kit Taplin

Sunday Sessions Alison Procter, Andy Smith, Kim Pike for Sportshall and

cross country.


We have been awarded The partnership Trophy by England Athletics for

    the second year running, this is an award that recognises the strong link that we have with Wallingford school and the assistance that they give us.

The UK award ceremony to be held in Birmingham. We will now be put

    forward for the national award.


    thThe award night will be on Wednesday 12 November at

    6.15pm at Wallingford School. There are around 35

    awards to present (including a prize to the winning team

    from the summer’s sponsored relay event) and there will

    be refreshments available. We want as many parents to come as possible. The training session on this day will be a fun sportshall

    type of event and the children will be put into teams. We are

    endeavouring to raise funds for Whizz Kids the charity that provides

    mobility equipment for disabled children. This charity is supported by

    Joy Trigg, our coach, and we will be asking for a minimum donation of ?1

    from each child competing.

    We have begun our nominations for:

    Club athlete, Most improved Newby, Most committed Athlete

    In all age groups and overall club champion. This year we will also be

    asking the athletes to vote for their team captain for this seasons cross

    country and sportshall meetings.


Amy Brooker attended a weeks training camp at Brunel University where

    she met and trained with a wide variety of athletes both beginners and

    internationals. She also met Linford Christie and got to hold the Olympic

    gold medal he won. At the end of the week Amy was awarded a Trophy

    for the most promising athlete. A similar camp will run in December if

    you are interested in attending let me know.


The club would not be able to run without the huge amount of work put in

    by our coaches. To make their job easier we are looking for parents to

    help with coaching and admin on a Monday and Wednesday evening. This

    could be done on a rota system if enough people come forward, also if you

    would like to help coach the under 11’s, (great fun) please feel free to

    have a chat to one of us during a session.


    We raised just under ?100; prizes for top teams will be awarded at awards night.
