Christmas Handicap : Sherdley Park, 19 December



We had a White Christmas Handicap at Sherdley Park this year. In the seniors races 6 men and 1 lady completed the course. Dave Forrester and Matt Crehan eased away from the field but with 100m to go, stopped and crouched down in a sprint style starting position. They set off again when the fast finishing Jake Healy caught them up and all 3 sprinted to the finish where Dave and Matt crossed the line together with Jake just a few strides behind. Jake won the Handicap race - full details are as follows (actual time in brackets): 1. Jake Healy 13.40 (15.03), 2. Barry Graney 13.44 (15.24) 3. Matt Crehan 14.00 (15.00) 4. Steve Tate 14.07 (17.17) 5. Stan Erlam 14.22 (19.02) 6. Ray Vose 14.41 (17.51) 7. Dave Forrester 15.00 (15.00). Chris Dempsey won the ladies race finishing the course in under 20 minutes.




The Juniors ran one lap of the senior course - results and report to follow.  Any more photos welcome.



Thanks to Janet Holmes and John Irwin for setting the course and to Julia Hayes for organising the prizes.



Manchester Area Cross Country League Match 3 : Boggart Hole Clough, 12 December



On a quiet day for St Helens- Sutton's senior ladies team two athletes competed on an extremely muddy course at Boggart Hole Clough.
Gemma Connolly was first home in 7th position overall in a time of 29.18 and Chris Dempsey kept up her 100% finishing record by completing the course in 38.26 (10th L45).
Lack of numbers meant that we didn't score on the team front so please let's have a full turnout for the next match (Woodbank Park Stockport Sun 3rd Jan) to rectify this problem.
