The club and athletes would like to thank team manager Tina Tappenden from Ashford AC who did a fantastic job coordinating everything across the events and accommodating the athletes as much as possible; and the athletes and officials from Ashford, Invicta and Paddock Wood for their support and team spirit - it’s been very nice to see all the athletes support each other as one team.
Well done to everyone who competed and thank you to the officials from across the clubs.
