In the last meeting of the YDL at Stourport the weather posed problems for all the athletes on the day. A gusting and variable wind blowing into the faces of the runners on the home straight sometimes made times slower than normal also affecting all the field events. The Tamworth athletes made the best of the conditions with sound performances throughout. Finishing 4th in the league behind Solihull and Small Heath AC, Telford AC and Kidderminster and Stourport AC brought a good conclusion to the YDL season.
