What a turnout by our Club endurance runners for the first of the North Staffs Cross Country League of 2014 held at Winsford last weekend. Some forty five athletes competed across nearly all the age groups from U11 to Seniors.
Top individual performance was from Alfie Bould who won the U13 Boys competition by quite a margin. In the other events the first-ins were Jacob Aston O'Donovan who came 6th in the U11 Boys, Will Kesteven who came 8th in the U15 Boys, Fred Dobberson who came 15th in the U17 Boys, Meg Illingworth who came 8th in the U11 Girls, Maddie Goodman who came 8th in the U13 Girls and Katelyn Mooney who came 11th in the U15 Girls and Andy Jones who came 131st in the Senior Mens race.
