With so far only the provisional results from the WYAL match on Sunday last in Swindon available we hesitate to congratulate too much BUT....what an amazing day and so many outstanding performances - and on top of that it appears we may have won both the main league match (a first) and the U11 QuadKids match - back to where we once were on a regular basis. Well done to everyone - parents, team managers, officials, supporters and of course athletes who competed.
There were many fantastic results and some absolutely brilliant ones!! These are provisional - they will be up-dated but..........

The QuadKids were not to be out done. Katy Beadle set a new Club Record in the 75m as she won the girls competition leading the team to 2nd place. Philip Oladunjoye set a new Club Record for the number of points scored in a single QuadKids event (262 points) whilst Thomas Day set a new Club Record in the 600m with a time of 1:54.8. The wining combined points total for the boys and girls placed Slough Junior AC almost 100 points ahead of the teams in second place. Well done to everyone.
