Congratulations to all of the 27 teams that represented Bohermeen AC last night in Claremont Stadium in the year that the club celebrates its 50th anniversary since being reformed in 1969 one couldnt be more prouder of all these young people who represented the club last night. The club realises the huge effort that both parents many who were past members and the children put in to get there and be part of a memorable night, as said many times before the there are no children standing on the Olympic podium but some clubs fail to recognise this, children are meant to enjoy not endure their youthful years with their friends in sport.
Thanks to Patricia for orchestrating the planning in advance to have 27 teams on the track and also thanks to Ollie, Annie, Olivia and everyone on the night that helped get every Boherrmeen athlete to the line that wanted to run. Many club members recently did an updated child course in sport and the word SQUAD was being repeated as being the way of inclusion in all clubs and last night we were very proud of our SQUAD.
