Where are you now?
The secretary has many programmes / results / records stretching back decades.
Sometimes a question is asked by an ex-athlete such as, “Can you tell me how far I jumped in 1974?” Often the statistic can be tracked down and the answer given!
Recent circumstance has meant a photograph of the SSAA team to the ESAA Track & Field Championships in 1961 has been found. Somerset was a ’Minor’ County with an entry of 60 athletes.
Gradually other photographs will be added to this page so that the question is,
“Where are you now?”
