Yesterday saw many of our U17/U20 teams travel to Newport for theYDL promotion match, in which the West Wales team hoped to do well and remain in the Premier League. Thanks to all the Pembrokeshire athletes who competed in this very important match.The report below is from Carmarthen's Nathan Jones.

"As part of another busy weekend with two events in two days, the Youth Development League for under 17 and under 20 athletes concluded with the South West Promotion & Relegation Match at Newport Stadium. After a poor start to the season during the exam period, the West Wales composite team have come back strongly and after the 2nd place finish at the final league match in Cardiff last month, the team just missed out on the top three place to go on to the regional final, therefore it was the promotion match instead over in East Wales.

Despite gaps in the team again due to the holiday period, It turned out to be a great day for the two West Wales teams - with Swansea Harriers and West Wales finishing in the top 2 on the day, and in the process maintaining their positions in the main premier division for next season where they will still be up against the top teams in Wales and England. Performance today by the athletes that turned out was above and beyond expectation with many of them volunteering to do events that they would never usually do.

After long journeys and hard competition, it's been great to finish off on a positive note. Thank you to all the athletes from all clubs - Pembrokeshire, Carmarthen, Llanelli and Neath and the team managers who has been part of the composite teams' success this summer. It starts all over again next April! "
