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.

Appalling Conditions For League at Stanmer Park

The final Sussex Cross-country League match was held in almost battle ground conditions at Stanmer Park on Saturday. In the bitter cold, wet and wind, it was the poorest underfoot conditions I have seen, apart from snow, at Stanmer Park since it was first used for cross-country racing in 1954.

The ground had not recovered from the South of England Championships, two weeks back, and it would not be wise to schedule another match so close to such a major event in the future though the Sussex League date was fixed before the area championship.
