Fayers leaves ‘um trailing at the trials
Matthew Fayers continued his stella year with another fine performance at the Euro XC trials at Liverpool’s Sefton Park on Saturday 26th November 2011.
Competing in the u20 mens race, 17 year old Matt was the youngest top placer in an impressive 22nd spot just 72 seconds behind the race winner and international athlete, Jonny Hay’s winning time of 20.23. Friend of the club, Richard Goodman of SBH was a close second and booked his place to the Euro Champs next month. As we don’t have a vote on who is club athlete of the year, it matters not that Matt is already HAC athlete of the year for 2011… er in my humble opinion!
HAC registered athlete Julia Bleasdale also competed at the trials finishing 6th in the senior women’s race.
