British Athletics League, 4th July 2009 at Norman Park


On the 4th of July the Club will be hosting an Athletics meeting at Norman Park. There is nothing unusual in this, it is something we do year after year. What is different is that this will be the first time in the 40 years of the British Athletics League that we have been allowed to host a fixture on our home track.


The BAL held its first fixture in our Centenary Year in 1969. We were one of the founder members of the League but we did not survive long, being relegated in successive seasons. We were soon demoted to the Southern League. Fast forward to 1979 and we celebrated a return to the British League and there followed an extraordinary run of four successive promotions which took us back to the top division. After seven years in the top flight we have moved between divisions but remain in the League and have potential to gain promotion in 2009.


40 years of the BAL

30 successive seasons in the BAL

Our first ever match at Norman Park


All this seems a suitable reason to celebrate and we are planning to make the 4th of July more than an average Athletics meeting. We would love to see as many of our former BAL athletes there as possible.


Further details to follow.
