Southampton AC, Southern Counties Veterans A.C. Track & Field League Men's Champions, 2016
Southampton and Winchester & District carried on their winning ways by claiming victories in the first men's and women's match respectively of the new season. In a break from tradition, this fixture was held at Winchester Sports Stadium as Portsmouth's Mountbatten Centre is still without working floodlights.
We were lucky to have Paul Hammond taking his wonderful photos at the match. As usual, you're welcome to
download any of them for free, but if you'd like to make a donation to the
charity that Paul supports please do. Read about his charity appeal: Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity

About the league
Hampshire is one of seven divisions of the Southern Counties Veterans AC Track & Field League. It was known as the Hants & Surrey Division until 2016, but was renamed as all member clubs were then based in Hampshire.
The other divisions are:
- Herts & North Middlesex
- Mid London
- South West London
- Sussex (currently operating independently of League)
Each division stages a series of matches, usually on Monday evenings in April, May, June and July, at various venues within its geographic area. The men's and women's champions, plus the runners-up in the Kent Division, then compete against each other in the League Finals which take place in early September.
