England call up Dockery for British & Irish Masters Championships

BRISTOL & West AC’s Anne Dockery  has been selected to represent England at the British & Irish Masters Cross Country International in Swansea a week tomorrow (NOV 17th).

Dockery (pictured), who is coached by Chris Elson, has been in outstanding form recently and at the World Masters Track & Field Championships in Malaga in September she won bronze medals in the over 70s 800m (3mins 22.00secs), 1500m (6:41.69) and 5000m (24:13.91).

She is also the British Masters champion over 400m, an event in which she placed sixth in Malaga.

After the recent rain the cross country course in Swansea will be a different proposition entirely but one she is likely to take in her stride.

Also in the England team is Bath-based M55 runner Guy Woods while his brother Alec is a reserve in the M50 age group.

Also on the reserves bench are the Bristol & West pair of Sarah Everitt (W50) and Tony Roper (M55), both of whom are coached by Dave Taylor.
