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.

Southern Athletics League

Full results are still not published for last weekend’s Southern Athletics League but there were  three Sussex team wins and several Man/Woman of the match awards.

In Division One Crawley were at home and were convincing winners with Samuel Heawood the Man of the Match for his fine shot putt of 15.94m.

In the current league table, after two matches, Crawley are placed fifth, just one point behind the leaders Norwich, with seven points.

In Division two Eastbourne Rovers had a good home victory and are second in the League on seven points behind Ipswich

Five victories for Crawley at Yeovil

Despite losing many of their top athletes to the BUCS on Saturday the Crawley team did well to avoid the relegation area in the first of this season’s British Athletics League matches at Yeovil.

In what was a very tight Division two match just 70 points separated the top seven teams with Bournemouth winning with 322 points from Havering’s 303 with Crawley finishing just ten points adrift of Kent’s fifth place on 272 points and Crawley placing sixth ahead of Glasgow and Rugby.
