The third league match of the 2017 track & field season took the Kingston youth team to the athletics track at the City of York University, it has been a year of struggle for the team which has been severely depleted at all of the matches our individual athletes gave 100% to the cause but they were simply overwhelmed by the massive number of competitors that came south with the two Scottish composite teams.
