Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

ONE in­di­vid­ual and two team bronze medals were the high­lights for Chiltern Har­ri­ers at the Southern Inter-Coun­ties Cross Coun­try on Satur­day.

Young­ster An­gus Wil­liams was the one to make the podium, while Will Perkins and Richard Slade col­lected team medals at U17 level in what was the high­est cal­i­bre cross coun­try race of the sea­son so far at Old War­den Park, in Bed­ford­shire.

For Wil­liams, the medal was a con­tin­u­a­tion of a su­perb sea­son so far at U13 level and two of his Har­ri­ers team-mates Alex Al­dred (19th) and Tom Hunter (37th) were the next two scor­ing ath­letes for Bucks in this age­group, while Nathan Hack­ley was 40th on his de­but for Mid­dle­sex.

The Bucks U17s were al­ways fan­cied to be among the medal con­tenders and Perkins spear­headed their chal­lenge by fin­ish­ing a mag­nif­i­cent fifth. Slade gave good back­ing as the fourth and fi­nal scor­ing run­ner in 30th to clinch bronze.

Hannah Mor­ton was sec­ond scorer home for Herts in the women’s U20 event, where she fin­ished 23rd, while Robyn Watkins was the first of the U15 Bucks girls in the U15s race, com­ing in 34th, and Rachel Pad­wick was 35th in the U17s ladies races Else­where, Orla Wil­liams and Olivia Cameron were 42nd and 62nd re­spec­tively on their county de­buts in the U13 girls event.

Mean­while, in the Mas­ters Cham­pi­onship event at the same meet­ing, Derek Brown was 13th in the Vet 50 race and 3rd in the Vet 55 sec­tion.
