Athletics – Mr. D. Pusey
Last season was a successful one for the school. Where the previous year we had failed by one point to win the Borough Championship, last year we were successful, winning the under 15 Championship with a clear margin of 12 pts. The 15/17 team were 6th in their event.
As a result of good performances, T. Archer, B. O’Reilly, C. Lewis, T. Moss, N. Jarvis and M. Rozario were chosen to represent Ilford in the County Championships at Harlow. T. Moss did exceedingly well, coming 2nd in the discus with a very good throw of 132ft.101/2ins. As a result of this he was chosen to represent Essex in the National Championships at Shrewsbury. In this event he was 11th. C. Lewis is also to be congratulated on his performance at the County Championships. He was 6th in the Long Jump with a leap of 17ft.6ins. For the first time inter-school triangular matches were held. These were thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part. it is hoped they will become an established part of the Athletic Season, (a) because it gives an opportunity to compete against schools outside the Borough; (b) because it gives the younger boys a chance to compete for the school. The results of the triangular matches were as follows:
Field Match: 1 Park Modern, 2 Mayfield, 3 Robert Clack
Track Match: 1 Park Modern, 2 Mayfield, 3 Robert Clack
Track Match: 1 Fairlop, 2 Mayfield, 3 Gearies
