Sussex best for Phoenix at West London

Brighton Phoenix set a Sussex best at the South of England cross-country relay championships at Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday with a fine fifth place.

Sussex participation in this event has never been very strong and for many years no Sussex club has travelled to the event.

Phoenix, who missed the County event the previous weekend, made an excellent showing at the West London course.

Phoenix 16th Brighton & Hove 39th at Sutton Park

Brighton Phoenix and Brighton & Hove Athletic Club flew the Sussex flag at the National six-stage Road Relay championships at Sutton Park on Saturday with both clubs fielding weakened teams.

This did not prevent the Phoenix squad finishing in a highly creditable 16th place in 1hr 50m 56s.
