Fantastic Well Done to all the U17 and U20 Athletes who competed in the YDL on Sunday 1st July at Cleckheaton along with the officials, parents and supporters who joined us on the day.
The Team Spirit you display at these team events is great to see and makes us all as parents, helpers and coaches very proud.
Another massive thanks to our Officials who gained us the maximum 55 points for turning out on Sunday in the blistering heat.
