Manchester Area XC League Match Five - Kenworthy Woods II

The 5th and final fixture in this season’s Manchester Area Cross Country League returned to the windswept University playing fields in Wythenshawe.


First to run were the Under 11s. Evan Lewis had a great run to finish 10th out of 66 runners in the boys race, with twins Barney (57th) and Joe Watson (65th) helping the team finish in 13th place.  The girls race saw Martha McCormack and Daisy Atkiss both having good runs in 19th & 20th positions. Sadie McCormack finished in 60th place, ensuring 12th team.


The Under 13 race saw 10 Trafford boys & 2 girls take part. Leading the boys was the ever-consistent Charlie Atkiss in 12th place. The next 3 scorers all came in close together, Sonny Wilson 17th, James Walton 19th & Josh Watson 21st. They were followed by a much-improved Joseph Daly 29th, Owen Reekie 39th, Ralf Syrett 44th, Zack Watson 45th, Austin Smith 48th & Ed Robinson 53rd. For the girls,

Imogen Davenport was 45th & Fay Lewis 69th.


Jack McNicol had a convincing 13 second victory in the Under 15 Boys race, ensuring an overall victory in the league. Tom Bentall showed some of his old form by coming in 13th, with Alex Brown completing the team in 27th place.


Perhaps the most impressive Trafford performances of the day came in the Under 15 Girls race. In a field of 40, they packed 6 in 22 places and only narrowly lost the team award by 2 places. Leading the team home was Caitlin Doohan in 6th, followed by Neve Davenport 9th, Lila Wainwright 15th, Sinead O’Driscoll 18th, Olivia Russell 20th and Amy Nunn 22nd.


Trafford’s Under 17 Men completely dominated their race, finishing 8 in the first 17 places and winning the league. Leading them home was Cynog Williams in 2nd place, also giving him 2nd in the individual overall league. Behind him were Joe Bentall 5th, Alex Bailey 6th, Harry Sinclair 8th, Joe Mangan 12th, Seb Patrick 13th, Theo Symons Treacher 16th and Lewis Royle 17th. 6 of these athletes will be in the same age group next year, so will be hoping to repeat this year’s team victory.


Rebecca Young was our only representative in the Under 17 Womens race, coming home in a consistent 9th place. Hopefully next season she will have more company in this age group, when some of the Trafford Under 15 Girls move up.


A final mention goes to Mac O’Malley & Jack Wilkinson, who finished 1st & 2nd Under 20s in the Senior race at the same venue.


No races next weekend, but several of the athletes will be travelling to Leeds for the National Cross Country Championships on February 23rd.
