This means over the three matches both Trafford and City of Sheffield will head into the promotion match at Bedford on August 3 along with the top two teams from the other three regions. The top two finishers at that event will start in the premiership next year.Charlie Williams competes for Windsor Slough Eton & Hounslow in the NAL and represented them in the second round at Woodford last weekend.The young athlete competed in the Discus against top UK opposition and finished eleventh with a 33.85m throw and in the shot finished twelfth with an 11.26m put. Charlie said he struggled with the horrendous weather to find his form and is looking forward to some redemption in the finals next month.His Windsor Slough Eton and Hounslow team finished sixth place on the day.
