Several club juniors were selected to represent West Midlands and competed in the national inter regional competition at Sandringham, Norfolk. Despite some very poor weather with heavy showers and thunderstorms Julie Emmerson W16 came top in the girl’s individual event on Saturday and Harrison McCartney M14 2nd in his race.

In the relays the West Midlands boy’s team of Harrison McCartney M14, Alistair Gardner M16 and Matt Elkington M18 also ran exceptionally well and came in first beating some tough opposition.
