Press Report: League Refresh for 2021

WEST CHESHIRE Athletic Club will compete in a new-look Northern Track and Field League next year.

The Ellesmere Port Sports Village-based outfit will feature in the West Premier Division alongside Blackburn Harriers, Preston Harriers, Sale Harriers, Team Isle of Man, and Wigan and District Harriers.

A decision to restructure the league was made at Saturday’s annual general meeting to ensure more regionalisation for the four rounds, plus an end of season grand final.

The original structure comprised of clubs competing against one another from the North West and east of the Pennines, but the new-look regionalised league has been designed to help prevent clubs from travelling long distances and to combat any future Covid-19 restrictions.

West Cheshire AC are provisionally scheduled to host round three on Sunday, July 11, while Blackburn will host the opening round on Saturday, May 22; Preston will play host for round two on Saturday, June 19, and Sale will be hosts for the final round at Sportcity, Manchester, on Sunday, August 1.

A grand final for the top two clubs in the West Premier Division will be held on Saturday, August 14.

WEST CHESHIRE Athletic Club will be staging their Annual General Meeting via Zoom on Monday, November 30. Members wanting to attend need to request a link to the meeting from Club secretary, Clare Mallon.
