(6) UK INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS, BIRMINGHAM, SATURDAY/SUNDAY, 26TH/27TH FEBRUARY 2022
UK TITLES WON BY CHEYANNE EVANS-GRAY (60 metres), ADELLE TRACEY (1500 metres) AND JESSIE KNIGHT (400 metres).
This coming weekend will see several Surrey athletes attempting to win National Titles and gain selection for the World Indoor Championships to be held in Belgrade, Serbia on 18/20 March.
For the first time on this website we have produced ranking lists for Indoor events. At present we have only done this for the current year but over time we hope to extend this back to previous years. For the purposes of these rankings the current year is the period defined by UKA as the competition year. Therefore, although the year is described as 2022 it actually started on the 1st October 2021. Previously the only County Records that were maintained were for Seniors. Once we have gone back sufficiently in time to get the best performances for age group competitors then we attempt to produce Age Group Records as well.
John Parlett died on 8th March 2022 aged 96. John joined Dorking St. Paul's AC (predecessor club to Dorking & Mole Valley AC) as a schoolboy in 1942. His first major success came in 1943 when he won the Southern Junior Mile title. In 1947 he was 3rd in the AAA 880 yards and then in 1948 & 1949 he won that title. In 1948 he was selected for the Olympic Games where he reached the 800m final and finished 9th. In 1950 he won the European 800m and the Commonwealth 880 yards titles. He was injured in 1952 and announced his retirement the following year.
UPDATE I have managed to find the results that previously were missing for 1975 - 2001. The above listing of Surrey Team Performances now shows that the Senior Men's victory was the first since 1979 - 43 years ago! The results published in AW for 1999 and 2001 only included the first 3 and first 9 teams respectively hence the team placing for those teams not included are shown with a '?'. If anyone has access to this information then please contact Webmaster.

We regret to announce the recent death of John Beer. John represented Dorking St Pauls AC and its successor clubs upto Dorking & Mole Valley AC on the Surrey County committee until recently. He also represented Surrey Athletics on the Surrey County Playing Fields committee. For most of us our memories of John are as a committee member but in his younger days he was a fine cross-country runner.
URGENT NEWS. We have just heard that John Beer's widow Joan passed away in her sleep yesterday, Sunday 3rd April. There will now be a joint funeral at 11.30am on Wednesday 20th April 2022 at Dorking Cemetery, Reigate Road, Dorking. (Limited Parking) and afterwards at the Royal Oak, Chart Lane, Dorking.

Congratulations to Laura, Fran and Graham and their teams for their amazing results yet again.
Special mention to Graham's boys who did not know they were going until a late call up last week and many reserves had to be called in to complete the team.
Thanks to everyone involved, athletes, parents, club team managers, Surrey officials and all committee members for their continued financial support in this particularly financially challenging season.
