NEYDL – Fixture Two – 21st May 2023 – Whitley Bay

Our junior athletes along with supporters, volunteers and officials gathered at Whitley Bay on Sunday 21st May for the second fixture of the NEYDL Division One season alongside teammates from Allerton Juniors Athletics Club.

Massive well done and thanks to our officials on the day, Trevor McDermot, Sarah Johnson, Brian Burdon, Brian Thompson, Lily Thompson and Amy Pickworth – without the team of volunteer officials, these fixtures would not be able to go ahead.
