KFL Swanley - 12 November 2017

Start

Allan Lee won the second match of the Kent Fitness League 2017/18 season on Sunday 12th November at Swanley Park as 37 Sevenoaks AC runners completed the event. Boosted also by James Mason in fifth and Darrell Smith seventh (1st M50), the SAC men were second on the day.

Women's Team

Meanwhile a fantastic turnout by the SAC women's team made up for missing Jacqui O'Reilly with sixth place, thanks especially to scorers Heather Fitzmaurice, Vanessa Gilmartin, Pauline Dalton and Jane Morgan. This meant that the combined team was second for the second match in a row
