EVENT UPDATE | MONDAY 16 MARCH 2020 | 16:00

It is with regret that we have had to make the decision to cancel the 2020 Varsity Series. A number of factors relating to the Coronavirus pandemic has led to this decision. Staffing pressures due to self isolation, National Governing Body requirements to cease all activity in some of the planned events and finally but not least the health of those playing, attending and working at these events has led to this decision.

 

Refunds


Those who have purchased tickets will be refunded within 14 days but we anticipate much sooner. Those who have paid match fees will be contacted with the option of either a refund or to buy a T-shirt.

Sport Brighton scholar George Mills won the British 1500m title last weekend at the British Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow on Sunday.

Mills, 20, who is from Harrogate but represents local club Brighton Phoenix, clocked a time of 3:50:69 to take the British title at the Emirates Arena, a week after he set a new personal best of 3:39:25 at the same venue at the Indoor Grand Prix – one of the most prestigious indoor athletics meetings in the world. The latter time puts him third in the current 1500m British rankings.

Speaking about his achievement, Mills said: “I’m delighted to have won the British title in Glasgow, it was a target for me to perform well there from the beginning of the indoor season. As far as I’m concerned, there is a lot more hard work to be done and a long way to go. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn and gain as much experience as possible”.
