Senior Team Award

The 2018 winner of the Stratford-on-Avon Bed Company Senior Team Award is Stratford Athletic Club Veterans Track & Field Team.

A measure of the improvement made by the team is that in 2014 they accumulated a total of 843 Midland League points and in 2017 this had risen to 1180, a hugely impressive 40% increase. The combined points accumulated by Stratford over the four league fixtures placed them 2nd in their league. In the Cup Final at Tamworth, the team finished in a magnificent 3rd place (out of 17 clubs) despite the Cup Final clashing with the club's own championships. What was just five years ago a group of Stratford veterans athletes stepping into the track and field unknown, has become one of the top three teams in the whole of the Midland region. Indeed, they have become a team the whole of Stratford can be proud of.
