Tremendous results for Sussex at Loughborough

A tremendous day for Sussex, at the Inter-counties cross country championships at Prestwold Hall in Loughborough, on Saturday saw one gold medal for Bethany Cook and four Top Ten team places.

Both the U17 teams finished a splendid fifth place, the senior men a remarkable seventh and the U15 girls filled ninth place  - all significant team performances.

The course was really tough with mud that Dave Leach, the men’s team manager, described as, “the worst I’ve seen this century”.

Four medals for Sussex at National Championships

Sussex youngsters scooped up four medals, one gold and three bronze, on the first day of a busy weekend’s athletics. Brighton & Hove’s Amber Anning took the U20 400m title and club mate Tom Eames the bronze in the U20 1500m with Eastbourne’s Moyo Daramola the bronze in the U17 400m at Sheffield. While Brighton Phoenix’s Almi Nerurkar was a shining light on a rather quiet day for Sussex at Parliament Hill with a splendid bronze in the U17 National Cross-country Championships.

Pre-paid parking SOLD OUT at The Amex for the Southern Cross Country Champs

The South of England officials breathed a sigh of relief when the Albion were drawn away in this weekend’s F.A cup,  as it meant there would be parking at the Amex stadium for the SEAA Cross Country championships after all.

It was a risky decision, made in December, to bring the championships to Stanmer Park again this coming Saturday as there was a chance that there would not be any parking locally. Entries for the championships, one of the most important races of the winter,  closed in December, before the F.A. cup venue was confirmed.
