This year was unusual due to Covid-19 and English Schools organisers selecting the athletes from all the counties nominations. English Schools selected the top sixteen athletes in each event in each age group.
Congratulations to Chris Charles who has now qualified as a Level 1 Field Judge. At age 17, I think Chris becomes our youngest licensed official.
A record number of athletes entered the ESAA Regional combined events. So many in fact that for the first time ever we were able to enter 6 teams – one in each of the 3 age groups both male and female. 20 athletes in total.
Unfortunately, due to illness, 4 athletes pulled out before the event but one reserve was able to be called up meaning that we still had five teams and just 2 individuals in the senior girls.
