The BAL are very short of Divisional Secretaries they have asked the club reps to circulate the email below and the attached job description. As the email from David Jeacock explains, the BAL are ideally looking for a 3rd party to be attached to a particular division and to attend 4 league matches a year. Experience of athletics would be useful but not essential.

If you are interested, please feel free to speak to me on a confidential no commitment basis.
Geoff

Dear Colleagues

The AGM asked me to circulate ALL member clubs with the job description for Divisional Secretaries.

The strong feeling of the meeting was that the League needed a divisional secretary for each division who would broadly follow that division through the season although we would look for some flexibility to avoid someone going from Glasgow to London and crossing en route another divisional secretary going from London to Glasgow.

The meeting expects ALL clubs to try and recruit people to fill the three vacancies that we now have. And that means doing something more than simply putting a request on your club notice board. That does not work. What we need you to do is to consider who you know (in the club or outside) who could be personally approached and encouraged to take up the role. If we do not find some volunteers then the League will be impoverished and promoting clubs will have more work put on their shoulders. That would be unfair as promoting clubs already work hard.

The job description reflects the current position on checking registrations. However, increasingly the results programme do this check automatically leaving the Divisional Secretary only to address the anomalies or queries. When the national registration schemes are fully up and working this task should be even simpler.

The same applies to the rules on the number of certain groups of competitors allowed and the number of events a competitor is allowed to do. Again many results programmes will do this and the Divisional Secretary will simply have to deal with possible breaches.

I am happy to talk to anyone who is interested and they can always also speak to Ivor or Andy who are the present Divisional Secretaries.

Please contact me if I can provide further information.

I will be emailing you in the New Year to see how you are getting on.

And please understand that your Principal Officers and other officials
are also doing what they can to fill these vacancies

Hi All,
Happy Birthday this week to Hannah Brown, Josephine Chadwick, Matthew Grant, Sam Hynes, Rhodri Meredith, Julia Nilova, Stephanie Paparizos, Mark Pearce, Iona Theobald, Shaquille Thomas, Raaz Vaid

JAKE SHELLEY – Produced his best performance on the track breaking 8 minutes (7:59.57) for 3000m at the BMC meeting in Sheffield on 10 January. This puts him at No.6 on the Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers all-time list behind Dave Bedford (7:46.4 - 1972), Julian Goater (7:48.66 - 1980), James Espir (7:51.92 - 1980), Anthony Whiteman (7:52.62 - 2002), John Sherban (7:58.47 - 1991)

JAKE told me he plans to run an 800m and mile at altitude in Albuquergue, New Mexico on the 24 January and 31 January respectively, and then try and run a quick time over the mile or 3000m back at sea level in Seattle on 14 February. He will do some races in America in April, May and June before coming back for his main target race, the UK Championships on 3-5 July.

The following link is an article written by JAKE on his cross country season when he first went to New Mexico University in August 2013, it is an excellent read.

The UNDER 13 BOYS finished in 3rd place, maintaining our second place overall. Although Victoria Park and Tower Hamlets who are in 3rd place are now only 6 points behind us

The UNDER 15/17 MEN finished in 5th place, and we are now in 5th place overall.
The UNDER 15/17 WOMEN were outstanding to finish in first place again, and have now taken over the overall lead, TVH are now in 2nd place 29 points behind us
Our SENIOR WOMEN really packed well to record their 2nd win of the season, increasing the lead overall with Highgate Harriers to16 points.
