Team spirit - Gamechangers logo

In December of last year Bedford and County AC were successful in our application for Gamechangers Funding

To date we have used this funding to support ten of our members to become Coaching Assistants. Their enthusiastic input to Beagles has been inspirational and several of these young club members will shortly also act as coaching assistants in Beagles Plus. 

April sees the start of the outdoor track and field season. Next Saturday at Stockwood Park Luton is the Bedfordshire Open meeting (c/d 1/4/2019). The following weekend at Bedford Stadium the first Southern Athletics League match on Saturday 13th April and the first Eastern Young Athletes match on Sunday 14th. The NYDL starts on Saturday 27th April at Harrow and the Masters League on Wednesday 1 May at Sandy. Get in touch with your team managers now and let them know you want to compete.

Over the last weeks a lot of work has taken place to modernise the club website.  Andrew Davies has provided the design and groundwork for the new site and Rob Lands has consolidated the old website to ensure we have an archive.  Over the last weekend Andrew has worked hard to move our domain and website to a new provider.  We still have work to do to ensure the new site carries all the information, if you think anything is missing let us know.

Raphael Bouju ran 6.71 in the Dutch Senior Championships last weekend, breaking the Dutch U20 60m record. He won his heat beating the eventual winner. Unfortunately he had to pull out of the semi final with an injury. This places him second in the IAAF U18 world rankings for 2019.
