Following an email from Janice Kaufman, the vice-chair of the UKYDL, the start of the UKYDL season has been delayed until SUNDAY 30TH MAY.
This is in the wake of recent devolved government announcements and advice from the Home Country Athletics Federations (HCAFs).
As a result, the first two Lower Age Group matches and the opening Upper Age Group match have been CANCELLED.
The meetings concerned are as follows:
Saturday 24th April: LAG Match 1
Sunday 2nd May: UAG Match 1
Saturday 15th May: LAG Match 2 (Sutton Coldfield)
As a result, the LAG will have three rounds of competition this season and the UAG four rounds.
The remaining dates are as follows:
LOWER AGE GROUP (Saturdays):
5th June (Sutton Coldfield), 17th July (Sutton Coldfield) and 4th September (Venue TBC).
UPPER AGE GROUP (Sundays):
30th May (Stourport), 27th June (Stourport), 25th July (Tipton) and 5th September (Tipton).
More details on timetables, venues and the final structure of the League will follow over the next few weeks.
The League remains committed to delivering competition to as wide a group of clubs and athletes as possible as part of the transition to a more normal season.
