Junior Athletics – Louise Arthur League Camarthen – Sunday 10th May 2015

Well done to the large number of junior athletes who competed in the Louise Arthur League event on Sunday – it was great to hear that so many decided to make the trip ‘down west to Camarthen for the day (and thank you as ever to the efforts of the coaches and the Taxis of Mum and Dad – without which these events would never take place….

Lots and lots…and LOTS of great individual performances – be proud of yourselves guys – you were great!
