(2) CAU (MEN) INTER-COUNTY CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS, RUGBY, 19TH JANUARY 1957

The following is an extract from the report in the Surrey AAA Newletter No 2 dated April 1957:-

INTER-COUNTIES CROSS-COUNTRY 1957
The team assembled at Euston on the Saturday morning at 10.40 to meet the Team Manager before catching the llo‘clock to Rugby. The minutes ticked by but with no sign of the T.M. who was in fact rushing out of London Bridge to the Underground, cursing the lack of petrol which had caused him to miss his train at Sanderstead.
However with six minutes to spare but practically no wind he arrived to distribute the tickets. At the scheduled hour of ll the train drew slowly out of platform l2, the T.M. regained his breath and his charges settled down to the journey. To their consternation, however, the train stopped and reversed into Platform 9. After another ten minutes the leisurely trip to Rugby really started and the party duly arrived only forty minutes late.
From the station to Coton House whence they set about the business of running seven miles over beautiful grassland. Tony Llewellyn said that he liked his courses wooded and sure enough he finished tenth over a course partly obscured by trees. Mike Firth was our boy though, handing out shock treatment to such as Norris K. and Perkins A. eventually taking third place behind those worthy qentlemen. For the rest, let us say no more than that the experience will be invaluable for next year in the case of Roly, Ray and Ferdy, and to mourn the absence of Peter Driver, lan Boyd, Mike Maynard and Ron Clark.
Bill Lucas, Cross Country Team Manager.

(3) SCAAA AGM, 21ST FEBRUARY 1957

The following is an extract from the report in the Surrey AAA Newletter No 2 dated April 1957:-

SURREY ASSN. A.G.M.
It is perhaps apposite to mention that all the Officers were re-elected, that no special motions were tabled and that the protective screen offered by Secretary Cecil Dale’s cigar was not needed. Cigars were appropriate however as, for the first time, the Association was reported as having a firm financial footing thanks to a sound working profit and television fees.
On a more practical level coaching efforts were shown as paying their way as well as doing much to raise the standards of County Athletics. Looking further into the future it was agreed to make a donation to the Surrey Schools’ A.A. to help with the travelling expenses of their athletes to the All England Schools Championships, Southampton.
