Blackheath and Bromley won the National Junior League Final at Derby’s Moorways Stadium on Sunday 10 September to avenge their defeat a fortnight earlier at the hands of Enfield and Haringey in the UKA Young Athletes’ League Final.

 

The last clash of the season between athletics’ most productive nurseries was “everything you could have asked for – perfect weather, fabulous support, and a clutch of PBs for many athletes,” reports the NJAL Treasurer, Grace Hall.

 

Two League records were established: Nony Mordi (Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers) triple jumped 12.88m (wind: +1.5) to win the Women’s Athlete of the Match Award, add 7cm to her Scottish Under 20 Women’s record and go to the top of the UK age group rankings for the season; and Jade Surman (Birchfield Harriers) sped to 13.79 seconds in the 100m hurdles (wind: +1.0), a legal PB by 0.18sec at the end of a season in which she achieved her heptathlon PB at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Beijing.

 

The Men’s Athlete of the Match was Jamie Williamson (Trafford AC), who won the shot with 16.05m.

Mordi was also an Athletics Weekly Grand Prix winner along with Josh Cayenne, a Spenborough athlete coached by Stuart Hall who ran new PBs in the 200m (21.84) and 400m (48.90) and equalled his 100m PB (11.17).

 

Match result: 1 Blackheath and Bromley 502; 2 Enfield and Haringey 486; 3 Shaftsbury Barnet Harriers 446; 4 Birchfield Harriers 397; 5 Gateshead Harriers 384.5; 6 Windsor, Slough, Eton and Hounslow 371.5; 7 Trafford AC 333; 8 Notts AC 243.  

While the League became joint-scoring this season with men’s and women’s efforts counting together for the first time, the European Junior Clubs’ Cup remains for single-sex teams. So the UK representatives for 2007 will be Enfield and Haringey’s men and Blackheath and Bromley’s women.
