Southern Athletic League Promotion Confirmed

SAL1 Edited

On Saturday, Hillingdon Athletics Club realised its ambition of promotion back to Division 2 of the Southern Athletics League; after just a year in Division 3 reports James Manley.

This was a momentous performance. Everything – from the men’s maximum across the A and B 100 and 200, to Hannah Wells’s bravery in the B string women’s 400m hurdles – secured a mammoth 274 points on the day. To list all the individual achievements would no doubt crash the HAC website server. The margin of victory will have to suffice as testament to the efforts of every member of the squad: London Heathside, the home team, also vying for the final promotion place, were left with just 239 points.

In recent times Europe had stepped back from the precipice; in 1914 there would be no peace or compromise. As grave events spiralled out of control Europe could not step back from the brink. Germany declared war on France and Russia then in defence of Belguim, Britian declared war on Germany on the 4th August 1914. By the end of the deadliest conflict ever from the 65 million soldiers, sailors and airmen that were mobilised 8.5 million were killed, 21 million wounded  7.7 million were POW’s or were missing in action. Unsuprisingly sportmen were involved and died in the war and here below is article on some of them copied from Spartacuseducational.com. Can you imagine the likes of Steven Gerrard, Chris Robshaw, Mo Farah and Andy Murrary a 100 years ago enlisting for war? Well they did! [Read more →]
