Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

WILL Perkin was a dou­ble win­ner at Chiltern Har­ri­ers’ first Cross Coun­try Club Cham­pi­onships at the week­end.

The com­pe­ti­tion, in which Perkin won both the se­nior men’s (over­all) and un­der-20 men’s cat­e­gories, was in­cor­po­rated into Har­ri­ers’ fourth Chiltern League match, at Keysoe on Satur­day.

With all the se­nior men run­ning to­gether, young­ster Perkin came home first over­all while Ge­orge Gilling­wa­ter was the first senor male home with Nick Hughes the vet­eran men’s cham­pion.

The younger age groups were won by Will Brown (U17 men), An­gus Wil­liams (U15 boys), Woody Jack­son (U13 boys) and Oak­ley Den­son (U11 boys).

There was also a dou­ble win for Bex Nkoane, who was the first vetean woman home and the overal race win­ner, while Louise Dur­man was the first se­nior woman home in the same race. The younger age groups were won by Robyn Watkins (U17 women), Jane Wil­liamson (U15 girls), Orla Wil­liams (U13 girls) and Frankie Bax­ter (U11 girls).

At the league match it­self, Har­ri­ers fin­ished third and are sit­ting com­fort­ably in third place in the stand­ings with one match left.

Bax­ter bagged her first league win in the U11 girls’ race while Den­son won his third con­sec­u­tive race in the U11 boys’, backed up by Al­fie Clif­ford in third.
