South East Lancs Cross Country Reports 19/20

Heaton Park 19th Oct 2019

Match 1 – 19/10/2019 - Heaton Park, Manchester

The first match of the South East Lancs League took place at sunny Heaton Park, with good muddy conditions for the large contingent of ECH athletes taking part. It was the first race of the cross country season for the under 11′s and they didn’t disappoint with the boys winning the team event and the girls finishing 2nd. Alfie Manser ran brilliantly to lead the team home finishing 1st, with Finley Partington 3rd and Edward Figgins-Barrett 6th making up the team. Anna Rooke, Amelia Jones and Meadow Wright packed well finishing 6th, 7th and 9th respectively. The under 13 girls finished a solid 2nd team with good performances from Erin Lord 9th, Harri-Ann Fleet 16th and Caitlin Shaw-Humphries 17th. The under 15 girls won the team event with excellent performances from Aliesha Smith 7th, Ellen Lees-Hill 11th and Macy Singleton 14th making up the winning team! Megan Lewis performed really well in the under 17 women’s race finishing 2nd overall.

There was more success in the senior races with the senior men winning the team event and the ladies finishing 2nd! Hayley Simpson had a great race to come home in 3rd place, with Bethany McManus 13th and Rachel Fawcett 19th making up the team. It was great to see David Barratt back to club racing and was first home for the men in a superb 2nd place and good performances from Joe Hudak 3rd, Gavin Browne 6th and Scott Matthews 8th made up the team.

Well done to all athletes who took part (too many to mention!), there are some excellent pictures on our Facebook page especially of the juniors. See photo inset of the senior men’s winning team – David Barratt, Joe Hudak, Scott Matthews and Gavin Browne (left to right)
