English Schools Cross Country Cup Success

Formby HS U13 Boy’s team qualified for the regional round of the ESAA Cross Country cup which was held at the Sedbergh School in Kirby Lonsdale. This was a demanding cross country course & not one for the feint hearted. The event was keenly contested with schools from Merseyside, Greater Manchester & Cumbria all competing for a place in the national finals this coming weekend in Kent.
Calday Grange(Wirral) looked favourites when their first two runners finished first & second, but they could only manage 4th place. As it turned out it was the excellent ‘packing’ of Formby’s 3 LPS runners, Harry Wright(13), Oscar Davidson(14) & Gideon Lucas(15) which clinched victory by 2 points.
Coach, Karyn Hannaway, who trains the boys at the Edge Hill track, is delighted with the progress the boys have made & is now looking forward to the final.
