Met League Claybury, 20 October 2012

It was a muddy Claybury course that many first timers to cross country met, reports Dianne Gibbons. Despite this, they tried really hard representing Hillingdon AC . In the u13 boys Sebastian Mills was 10th, Christopher Corker (25th), James Forde (32nd), Abdi Hamud(33rd) and Arthy Manivannan (38th). In the u13 girls Hollie Acraman was 24th, Anna Talbot (25th) and Esme McLellan was 29th. In the u15/17 race, Ruben Vos came 10th, Sam Lloyd came 22nd and Dominic Speight 39th. In the u15/17 girls race, Chelsea Pledge came 37th and Lily Fawsett came 44th- unfortunately Faiza Hamud had to pull out with an injury. A good start to the cross country season – the next fixture will be the North West London League at Horsenden Hill next Sat- we hope to see a lot more of the Juniors there. More information will be available shortly.

The senior women had their largest turnout in the Met League for many years with thirteen athletes competing for the club, (reports Paul Leppard) boosted by Esme Stallard, Heather Gibbons, Sarah Nicholson and Caprice Beggs making their senior cross country debuts. Led home by Hannah Wells in 62nd position, the women’s A team are placed fifth in Division 2 after the first fixture whilst the B team sit in fourth place in Division 3.

In the senior men’s race Matt Fayers was first scorer for the club in eleventh place and was closely followed by Robert Thompson in fifteenth whilst there were cross country debuts for Daren Roscoe, Dean Burch and Stuart Reilly as part of a total turnout of twenty six. The men’s A team finished in sixth place in Division 1 with the B team in fifth place in Division 3.
