Officials level 2 field course. Course now FULL

The Oxfordshire Athletics Network is running a Level 2 Field course on Friday 16 August 2013, at Horspath Road, between 6 pm and 10 pm.  The course will comprise the Generic and Field modules only, due to time constraints.

Candidates will still need to attend a Health & Safety course and it is planned to arrange this at the earliest opportunity on a separate evening (H&S course takes 1.5 hours).
The course code for the L2 course is SO/0307FD.  The cost of the course will be £20 (an additional £10 will be payable for any subsequent H&S course).

Woodcock's double helps Oxfordshire to home win

Radley’s Kathryn Woodcock went sixth in the UK under 17 discus rankings as she helped Team Oxfordshire to victory at Tilsley Park.

Woodcock, 16, threw a personal best of 40.95m in the Midland Premier 2 third round meeting and added victory in the under 17 girls’ hammer (30.20) for good measure.

Her double was matched by clubmate Emma O’Hara in the under 20 ladies’ competition.

O’Hara, who is ranked second in the UK, for the hammer threw 53.84 for victory in that event and took the discus spoils in 37.38.
