Team Dorset composite team in 2020.  

A Meeting of the TD Competition Committee on July 18th., 2019, discussed  and concluded that the Team Dorset composite will continue to offer superior competition to its members' athletes into 2020.   It was agreed to include Poole Runners in the composite and in 2020 that will be for the Upper Age-Group (UAG) team only.   The necessary YDL form was completed on Monday, September 9th. and sent by DL.     

In 2019 Team Dorset consisted of athletes from Dorchester AC, Poole AC and Wimborne AC.     They competed in the Southern Athletics League (for u17s and above), finishing 5th. of the 12 clubs in Div. 3 SW. and will stay in that division in 2020.    
They were also in the UK Youth Development League (YDL) Upper Age-Group (UAG for u17 and u20), where they finished 4th. of the six clubs in South Division 2B and will remain in that division in 2020.   In 2020 (subject to confirmation at the YDL AGM) this will be a division of six teams, those being Team Dorset, the composite of BAC, NFJ and Salisbury (if they don't win a paper match for promotion !), and four others.  
Finally, in 2019 Team Dorset competed in UK YDL Lower Age-Group (LAG for u13 and u15), where they finished 1st. of the six clubs in Southern Division West 1.    Thus they will be promoted to Division Premier 2 in 2020, joined by Croydon, 
Herne Hill, Brighton and Hove, Southampton, Team Bedfordshire and Basildon.  This structure has to be confirmed in mid-October by UK YDL.
TD were committed to fielding teams at 13 matches during the 2019 season, and staged one LAG match at Poole on Sunday, May 18th. plus an SAL match at Poole on Sunday, June 16th.   The 2020 hosting of YDL matches is yet to be confirmed.  (After the UK YDL AGM on November 16th.)
