Medals a plenty for Sussex youngsters

Sussex youngsters scooped up a plethora of medals at the South of England U15 and U17 championships at Lee Valley over the weekend, with some twenty youngsters on the podium and four of them achieving gold.

Conditions were fairly mild for Saturday’s events but Sunday produced a strong head wind for most of the track races.

Triumph for Sussex Under 17s at Lee Valley

There was a tremendous victory for the Sussex U17 team at the South East Inter-county match at Lee Valley on Sunday.

Although there were several absentees on the day the team got behind team manager Lee Fulham and filled in most place with the Men coming out on top in their group and the Women placing fourth but overall Sussex scored 673 points, thirty points clear of Kent with Hampshire on 600 points with Essex on 576.5 points and Herts, Surrey, Bucks and Middlesex trailed away.

I cannot recall Sussex ever winning this match before.
