AN UNDER-strength Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow Athletic Club claimed fourth place in their opening Alder Valley Boys League fixture.

The club were missing a number of competitors due to an overlap with the football and rugby seasons.

As a result they struggled to put in a meaningful challenge and finished fourth out of the six competing clubs including surprise winners Camberley & District.

Hardest hit was the Under 17 boys' team on the day, though those who did take part gave a good account of themselves, particularly in the field events.

The hammer was the first event and it produced impressive maximum points wins from Bayley Campbell (68m34) and Harrison Wall (40m55).

Jude Compton-Stewart (56m17) and Isaac Hay(43m19) repeated the feat in the javelin with another maximum-points haul.

It proved to be a productive day for Hay who also claimed second in the discus with 29m03. Ryan Payne finished in the same position in the B string with 18m92.

Wall (11m30) and Payne (7m89) paired in the shot for more second places for WSEH.

There were maximum points accrued in the pole vault via the efforts of Anthony Rice (3m00) and Abraham Melbourne (2m90).

The versatile Melbourne also went on to claim third in the triple jump with 9m96.

The club’s best results on the track were provided by Sam Chevis in the 200m with 25.4secs, while Aaron Lawrence also finished third in the 400m in 56.1secs.

However, the track events proved to be more successful for WSEH in the Under 15s.

Sprinter Ben Greenidge twice finished second in both the A string 100m and 200m with times of 12.2secs and 24.9secs respectively.

Ekene Ijeomah won the 100m B string in 12.8secs, while Kam Cheung Lambert claimed victory in the B 200m in 26.0secs.

Marvin Tchangua kept the momentum going by winning the A string 800m in 2m12.5. He also came second in the 300m with 41.0secs.

Ethan Adisi-Musgrove completed a WSEH double in the 800m, winning the B race in 2m19.2.

Meanwhile, Kam Cheung Lambert won the high jump with a leap of 1m50, while Lio Owona took the B string honours with 1m46.

Best of the throws came from Archie Goodliff, who won the javelin with a personal best of 47m79. Euan Emery finished third in the shot with 6m96.

There were third places in the long jump for Rico Lionetti (4m94) and Alistair Pinner(4m43.).

The only win on the track in the Under 13 age group came from Laurie Sutcliffe in the 75m hurdles in 13.7secs.

There were second places in the 1500m from Rocco Hudson (5m11.7) and Sam Hodgson(5m17.7).

Lone winner in the jumps was Anthony Robins-Kent in the long jump with 4m52.

Best of the throws came in the javelin with Flynn Bayliss (25m32) and Will Fricker(16m64), both claiming second places.

WSEH make their Southern Athletic League debut at Swindon tomorrow (Saturday).
