Men’s XC: Birmingham League Race 4 - Wolverhampton

An unfortunate crop of injuries meant we were without several regulars for the final race at Wolverhampton, so we completed the league season but not exactly with a bang. Thankfully the guys who did make it to that start line gave it their all and ensured we completed 2 teams on the day. Several new boys along with some old campaigners decided to make a name for themselves and delivered really good performances, which is encouraging for the future.

The A team scorers were; Ed Banks 28, Jon Undy 95, Kelton Aldridge 96, Rene Vergo 102, Huw Jones 122, Mark Liptrot 134. A Team total 577

Although the A team finished a disappointing 14th on the day and we dropped from 7th to 9th place in the final league standings, the result kept us well clear of the relegation places (despite Athletics Weekly reporting otherwise). The B team came home in 7th place on the day and held on to 4th place overall, a very creditable result for the season.

The B team scorers were; Ben Beaumont 140, Toby Close 147, Andy Robbins 152, Nick Forrest 158, Adam Western 165, Martin Cleaver 177. B Team total 939

Martin Ludford 199, Owen Doherty 205, Richard Carney 229, David Sansom 233 were the other finishers.

Well done to all those who did turn out to represent the Club, and a big thank you to Jort, Rob and Raggy for supporting and looking after the discs at the finish. Good to see people getting involved.

Congratulations also to the BRAT women’s team who had a memorable day as you have no doubt heard, finishing 3rd in the Midland Women’s League and picking up Bronze medals. A massive achievement, which will really help to put the Club on the map; well done Geoff and the girls!
