Primary Schools Cross Country
We had a beautiful winter morning for the first local primary schools cross country races at Woodcote on Saturday. The ground was very heavy with tacky mud but it did not seem to worry the 271 finishers which is the most participants we have had for this popular series of races.
The morning got under way with the year 3 & 4 girls race and Pheobe Lyes who is a recent recruit to the club was a clear winner, but 2nd and 3rd had a real battle with Honey Rose Dulley from Woodmansterne just getting the better of Fleur Coppack who was running for her school St.Aidans, but is a club member and who recently won the catholic schools cross country title for her age group.
The results from the Sportshall competition at the Spectrum Guildford on the 22nd November have just come through. Our U13 boys team had their best result for a number of years finishing in 2nd place. There were some excellent performances and Thomas Porter finished 3rd overall in the individual rankings with Seyi Bello finishing 7th , and fingers crossed they may both get a chance to be in the Surrey team for the Regional Final. Special mention must go to Roel Guiaguin who won the speed bounce competition with 82 which was an amazing performance. The U13 girls A team finished 5th and the B team finished in 16th place. Eloise Jenkyns had a great afternoon finishing 8th in the individual rankings. The U15 girls looked really good and finished in 4th place. Amelia Clark and Saffron Tuck were both given invites to the Surrey squad training for the regional finals.
YA DOWNS LEAGUE
We have the 2nd fixture of the Downs League which takes place on Epsom Downs next Sunday the 6th December 2015. The start is at the Tattenham Corner area of the race course where there is ample parking. The U11 race starts at 10.45am with the U13s at 11am approx, and the U15s at 11.15am approx. All are welcome to run but please arrive at least 30mins before the start of your race. Anne Roden will be organising the teams and will be at the start from around 10am
THAMES MOB MATCH
With Thames turning out double the amount of runners than 2 years ago it was always on the cards that they would win this fixture. As it turned out the result was closer than expected due to the fighting qualities of our middle order runners, if we had a couple more of our Surrey League scorers running we might have turned the tables. Thames won 224 to 249 with 15 a side scoring. The full results are under the XC tab. As always, thanks to all helpers. Pics are in the "Event Photos"
