Gwent League Results

Westbury Harriers Under 15 boys team posted another strong performance today, to consolidate their position at the top of the league, with just one match remaining.  Abdi Hasan led them home in second place, and despite losing to arch local rival Sam Gentry, still leads the individual standings by a point.  The last race, at Pembrey in March, should be a real cracker!

In the Under 17 men’s race, Aidan Noble continued his recent good form with a strong second place.

U11: Isaac Osborne 40, Finley White 74, Harry Lucker 90

U13: Seamus Robinson 4

U15: Abdifataah Hasan 2, James Harrod 4, Alex Grocott 8, Greg Hayward 13, Fred Stewart 30

U17: Aidan Noble 2 (2nd U17), Ben Whitaker 14 (position in combined U17/U20 race), Ben Rawlins 15 (position in combined U17/U20 race)

It was nice to see Katie Hughes back in action after returning to the team after a knee operation. A big well done to Sandra Sforza for supporting the team despite her arm in being in plaster, brave (or crazy!) lady. Jeni Stevenson, Kirstie Hamilton-James and Sarah Gould for one of their best runs of the season. Louise Pretty for completing her first Gwent League, and finishing in fine form. Kelly Winstone we missed you today!
