2020 RESULTS & REPORTS (Click a fixture to expand)

The Indoor Championships (Part 2) were held in Cardiff.  This competition also included the South Wales, East Wales and West Wales Championships.

Natasha Moyes was the star of the show, winning the U13 60m title with a new PB of 8.61s.

Still only 12, Phoebe Havard, found the step up to the U15 age group a little tough, but performed very impressively, coming 13th out of all the 46 girls.  This put her 4th in the South West, just missing out on a medal. She recorded a respectable 8.56sec, just 0.03 off her PB (a time that that would have been good enough for the bronze).


Daniel Marchant (U15) – 27.04m (PB)

Hammer Throw

Owen Merrett (U17) – 69.17m (PB)
Adam Merrett (U15) – 24.43m

We didn’t have to wait very long for Owen Merrett to increase his own club record!

Having set it at 65.03m just less than a month ago, Owen has now increased it to an absolutely massive 69.17m!  To put the achievement in some perspective, it is the 16th best throw by an U17 boy EVER!

This distance also exceeds the current qualifying standard (68m) for the European U18 Championships, an event that is due to be held in almost exactly in one years time…so plenty of time to improve even further!

Javelin Throw

Felix Fielding (U13) – 24.28m (PB)
Henry Watson (U13) – 24.04m

Javelin Throw

Adam Merrett (U15) – 17.11m (PB)

Great to see some more field events in action at our comp today, and only one downpour! There were lots of great results and plenty of PBs. Thank you to everyone for coming and for all the volunteers and officials who made it happen.

We were also excited that we had FIVE NEW CLUB RECORDS – Felicity Whiteway in the U15 girls hammer with a throw of 38.91m (3rd on the UK rankings this season); Toby Conibear in the U20M hammer with a throw of 55.08 (6th on the UK rankings this season) and Arisa Burgess in the U13 girls Pole Vault with a leap of 2.25m… which is the top jump of the UK rankings this season! in addition Maddie Hillier set us a brand new U13 girls hammer club record, with 24.67m, which earns her a place on the ‘all time’ UK rankings too!  Finally a huge 31.72m from Jerry Musselwhite in the M60 Discus bettered our previous record, albeit with a lighter (age group specific) weight than the one set with a senior implement.
Well done guys, fantastic results!



Adam Brooks (U23) – 2.13m (PB + CLUB RECORD)
Luke Ball (U17) – 2.00m (PB = CLUB RECORD)

Some more great news from Lee Valley – this time it was two of our high jumpers in action. Both Adam and Luke went to compete at the BIG…ish Jumps Fest, along with coach Jeremy, and both came away with PBs – which are also club records!

Adam (SM) added 3cm to his PB, clearing 2.13m. He came second in his pool that consisted of some of the top UK male high jumpers.
After this great performance Adam has been invited to take part in the British Athletics Championships in Manchester on Saturday 4th September. Watch on BBC 2 – HJ at 5.30pm!

Luke (U17) cleared the big 2m for the first time – always a jump of special celebration! This 4cm PB moves him to the top of this season’s UK rankings.

Well done lads – and coach!
Great results! Well worth the 6hr round trip!

Thank you to everyone who came along to our track competition on Sunday, especially those that helped as officials or other volunteers. The event went very smoothly and it was such a pleasure to have athletes back on the track again.

We counted at least 16 PBs from Yate athletes, along with several season’s bests too, not forgetting to mention one Club Record, set by Alan Burgess in the M50 400m Hurdles.  This new record bettered the previous best set by Club Legend, Graham Howell, so impressive stuff!

Unfortunately, there was a bit of a hitch with the photo-finish at the start which was extremely frustrating.

But the weather couldn’t have been better.

Lots of PB performances according to P10.

Good afternoon

Just a little note to say thank you for a lovely day. It was George’s first meeting this year and he had a lovely day. Well organised and even the sun shone.

Looking forward to next weekend for more of the same.

Many thanks


Hi Graham,

Many thanks for a great day at the track and for your help in getting Joe into 2 races.

Kind regards


Hi Graham,

Thank you so much for putting on todays event, especially my hurdles race. It went very well. I am now back at school training there again, I wondered if you would be avalible for another session during the October half-term.

Thank you,


Hi Graham

I just wanted to say thank you for a brilliant event today.

Steph had a great time competing and we all enjoyed watching the athletes doing what they love.

It was very well organised and lovely to be back at Yate.

Take care and thanks again.


Hi Graham

Just wanted to say it was fun in the sun everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. In the warm up area athletes from different clubs were socialising at a safe distance.

All round excellent day and seemed professionally organised. So thank you from myself Ryan and Bristol and West for everything.



A big thank you to you and your team for a great day , Molly really enjoyed and had a pb .

See you back at Yate soon



Can I just say what a relaxed and safe meeting we attended today.

My daughter and I travelled down from the North and they would learn a great deal from Yate as to what a covid 19 event should look like.

Keep up the great work. It means that next year there will be no delay on Yate hosting events regardless of what may happen.

Thank you for a positive experience.

Vesna Dragisic.

Thank you Graham, what a well put together event.

Thank you for having Grace.

Kind regards


Just a quick Thank you to yourself and the team behind today’s open.

As well as being one of very few clubs actually putting on sprint hurdles, the meet was very well organised and safely managed – well worth the journey!


Ann Lacey

Hi Graham

Many thanks for today – Arisa and I had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Both of us are pleased with our results which include a new PB for Arisa in the hurdles – thank you again for all of your help these last months with that.

Hopefully, you will have at least a little you time to relax this evening?!

Have a great week and thank you for another great competition.

All the best

Alan and Arisa

Thank you for running such a great event. All the runners appreciated the opportunity to race.

Nathan Monk

Thank you Graham.  All very well organised yet again – you did a great job.  Naomi was pleased with her run (the second attempt anyway!)


Hi Graham,

Just a quick note to say a big thank you to you, the team from Yate, and all of the volunteers who contributed to hosting a brilliantly organised event yesterday; Yeovil was good last week but this surpassed it. Really impressed with the COVID marshalling which the officials delivered.

Thanks again,


Well done, Graham

Great event as usual !



Hi Graham,

I wanted to thank you, the club, officials and volunteers for a great competition yesterday. In these pressing times it is certainly no mean feat and must have taken a lot of work.  It was run safely, smoothly and most of all it was an enjoyable experience for both of my children and ourselves. THANK YOU!!

Kind regards

Marie Jones.

Hi Graham

It was a great day, and well done for arranging the weather!!! Same again next weekend if possible!!

A big well done to all our fantastic Quadkids who competed at our competition with Bristol and West yesterday! You all did so well, and we were very proud of you all!

Yate AC and Bristol & West AC each had a year 6 boys team and a year 6 girls team, with five athletes in each.
We also had ten younger athletes who were in years 4 and 5.

Each athlete competed in four events: 75m sprint, standing long jump, howler throw and 600m. Each event scores points depending on the time/distance and all the scores are added together to provide a total score for each athlete, and then for each team.

A quick summary of the results:

Year 6 girls:
Yate – 997.5
B&W – 814.50

Year 6 boys:
Yate -1049
B&W – 925

Year 4 and 5 team:
Yate girls – 614
Yate boys – 428 (3 athletes)

Matilda Green from Yate was the top scorer in the girls competition, and also jumped the farthest in the standing long jump (2.03m) AND ran the fastest 75m time (11.2s).

Daniel Thomas, also from Yate, was the top scorer in the boys competition, and had the longest throw with the howler (30.5m).

So, a big congratulations to Matilda and Daniel for their excellent performances!

The top five scorers in the Yate teams were as follows:
Matilda Green – 222.5
Abigail Gregg – 199
Summer Richards – 193
Layla Gardiner – 183
Annabel Godson – 180

Daniel Thomas – 233.5
Tristan Wilkins – 221
Finn Macleod – 210.5
Max Baigent – 196.5
Sidney Davis – 187.5

For many of these young athletes it was their first time competing at an athletics event and, despite some understandable nerves, everyone did brilliantly! Three of our older athletes – Toby, Jodie and Liam – did a fantastic job leading each event, recording the performances and making the Quadkids feel relaxed and confident.

Thank you to all the parents who came along, supported and helped out. And thanks to our wonderful club volunteers who once again played essential roles during the afternoon (Stuart – starter; Ellen – club house/announcer; Liz – gate; Kirsty, Jeremy, Ann and Graham – a little bit of everything!)

Thanks also to Bristol and West AC for a thoroughly enjoyable competition! We must do it again sometime!,

From Jerry Musselwhite:

“I have been fortunate again to squeeze in another couple of races, this time at Dagenham on Halloween.

It had long been an ambition to run the iconic Mile, and there was also the opportunity to run 600m, which I had not run before. Fortunately, the heavy rain of storm Aidan stopped just before my races, but it was still very windy, so it was a question of head down into the wind and making the most of it when behind”.

Results as follows:

Mile – 5.36.52 – “very pleasing to run a consistent pace, move through the field to finish first in my race and go 5th on Po10, (42nd all time) for M60″.

600m – 1.53.32 – “happy with this too being 5th in the fastest heat among some very pacey company. A great learning experience just 40 minutes after the Mile race. I had thought anything below 2 minutes would be a good result. 2nd on Po10 for M60, albeit a short list!”

“The track timing equipment used was very helpful showing time elapsed for athletes to see coming down the home straight. It also showed participants prior to the race and individual finish times at the end of each race. Interesting there were also finish line photos in order on the live results link.

As this could well be the last track and field event of 2020, I must say a massive thank you to everyone at Yate and for access to such great facilities. The whole organisation and attention to detail is first class and I have learnt so much from all the amazing coaches and fellow athletes.”
