Sussex XC league (3) Bexhill
Sat 16 Jan 2010
A postponed event which was wet and muddy. In the circumstances there was a mixed turnout to report. Well done to the U13 girls, U15 boys and the senior/vet men for fielding complete teams.
Excellent performances in the junior races from Jodie Mann (12th U13G) Billy White and Archie Davis (3rd and 11th U13B) Robbie Fitzgibbon (6th U15B). The under 15 boys are still holding silver medal position.
There were just two senior women competing (impressive runs from Liz Durman 10th and Anita Jones 37th) but inevitably the team has now dropped to fourth place in division 2.
There were Just two senior men running backed up by four vets. Tom Coates was lead scorer with an excellent 20th place. Vet, Bruce Faulkner was next scorer in 26th. Although in fourth spot there are just 60 points to make up if we can field our top team in the final event at Lancing. The vets too are in fourth just 4 points away from bronze position. Easily attainable with a full turn out at Lancing.

The turn out of seniors was terrific, with A and B teams scoring for both the men's and women's races. In brilliantly sunny but freezing conditions we did well to take bronze team medals in both events.
Josh Guilmant (5th) and Pat Davoren (6th) were top scorers for the men with James Miles (26th), Tom Coates (27th), Max-Patrick Lippert (30th) and Bruce Faulkner (36th) completing the A team. Sophie Coleman (2nd), Erica Martin (12th), Liz Durman (20th) and Anita Jones (46th) made up the women's A team. Katie KIdger, who has transferred to Phoenix, was 19th but is not yet eligible to score for us. Looks like she is going to be a great asset for the women's team.
The junior age groups were represented thinly with no entries at all for U13 and U15 girls and complete teams only for U15 boys (silver team medal – William Dukin individual silver) and U17 boys (bronze team medal – Charlie Grice individual gold). Beth Kidger took individual bronze for the U17 girls and Finn McNally silver for U20 men. Sophie Coleman (second in the senior women's race) took gold for U20 women.

Over 60 Men Victorious at Dene Park
On a bright Sunday afternoon the over 60 men's team of Andrew Field, Andrew Haig and, celebrating his birthday, Pat Kearney finished 2nd , 4th and 10th respectively to easily retain the title won last year with a 16 point lead over Brighton in 2nd and Chichester 3rd, a further 3 points back.
The over 50's and over 40's were missing some key runners due to injury but both teams still put in strong performances to register 4th places in their races.
Sussex XC League 2 - Plumpton
Sat 28 Nov 2009
There was a good turn out for the men's race, though as usual it was thanks to the masters filling the ranks. In what where very soggy conditions underfoot the first Phoenix finisher was Finn McNally in an excellent 5th place and 1st U20. In the league the senior men are up to 3rd. The vets remain 4th.
The ladies are also up to 3rd in division2 helped by Liz Durman's fine 8th place.

Isn't life surprising. We've been commenting lately about relatively few women competing in running events and then bingo! – an unheard of four teams are entered for this event. What's more we've shown what we can do – with the A team (Erica Martin, Sundai Boulton and Liz Durman) winning a neck and neck battle with Horsham Blue Star for first spot. The B team(Angel Collins, Rachel Phelps, Erica Martin) would have placed seventh but for Erica running a second leg. As it was the C team (Deb Friis, Faye McClelland, Liz Halliday) were placed 9th and the D team (Hildi Mitchell, Sue Hudson and Ananda Mello-Costa) placing 13th.
The senior men also triumphed with Dave Carter, Charlie Grice, James Miles and Finn McNally running themselves into second place.
Elsewhere Archie Davis and Billie White ran great legs in the U13 boys event but lacked a third runner for what might have been a winning team. The U15 boys (Luke Reynolds, Jack Donaghy and Robbie Fitgibbon) were 4th team. Paul Collicutt and Malcolm Hughes ran well for the masters but alas were two runners short.
