The Battles of Bexhill

The second of this season’s Sussex Cross-county League matches on Saturday produced more big fields and some good battles at Bexhill Down.

Although mainly damp for most of the afternoon underfoot conditions were good for the notoriously muddy course and apart from the wooded stretches the going was firm.

Four of the seven races winners from Goodwood, last month, were again victorious but it was not all plain sailing.

Cross-country Relays

Provisional results from the Cross-country relays are now posted but fastest laps times are only available for the U15 and U13 age groups. The rest of the results may not be available until mid-week after Clubs have checked their names.

The senior team results have already been changed as Brighton & Hove had a “Non Sussex” runner in their team so Lewes step up to be champions ahead of Chichester and Brighton Phoenix.

The M40 title was won by Haywards Heath, M50 by Brighton & Hove and M60 by Crawley.

Great Battles at Under 15 Final

Crawley collected their sixth team victory in the Sussex U15 League final at Brighton’s Withdean Stadium on Friday evening.

Despite the holidays still making it difficult for teams to field their best teams it proved an excellent evening of good class competition and enthusiasm.

As far as the team results was concerned it was a case of deja vu as the Crawley team led for most of the evening and totalled 439 points to Chichester’s 367 and Brighton & Hove’s 356 with Horsham taking fourth place with 322 points.
