Wil­liams and Perkin lead home Har­ri­ers’ medal haul

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

AN­GUS Wil­liams and Will Perkin claimed in­di­vid­ual gold as Chiltern Har­ri­ers con­tin­ued their good cross coun­try sea­son at the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Cham­pi­onships on Satur­day.

Wil­liams’ lat­est suc­cess at U13 level proved the foun­da­tion stone for Har­ri­ers’ boys to take gold in this age group. Thomas Job also made the in­di­vid­ual ros­trum in third, just ahead of club-mate Tom Hunter in fourth.

To cap a great day for the U13 boys, the B squad took team bronze thanks to Alex Al­dred in sixth, Zach Ra­haman (13th) and Matt Clifford (16th).

The sec­ond Chiltern win of the day came in the U17 men’s race where Perkin pre­vailed in a sprint fin­ish. With Richard Slade in eighth and Thomas Rayner in 10th, it was enough for Har­ri­ers to take team sil­ver in this event. The B team of Will Brown (11th), Rob Hall (14th) and David Thomas (15th) were fourth.

The U17 women also came home clutch­ing bronze medals for the team event. Rachel Pad­wick led the charge, fin­ish­ing sixth with Orla Fawcett not far be­hind in eighth and Jess Orr com­plet­ing the trip of scor­ers in 12th.

Else­where, Robyn Watkins and the team as a whole just missed out on an in­di­vid­ual medal in the U15 girls race, fin­ish­ing fourth and the U15 A boys team also nar­rowly missed the medals in fifth.

James Rep­per was first Har­rier home in the 106-strong se­nior men’s event, where he came 40th.
