Alison’s under 13s squad are Bristol & West’s golden boys

THE Westbury Harriers girls weren’t the only medal winners at the Midland Cross Country Championships held at Prestwold Hall, Loughborough.

For Bristol & West AC their medal heroes were the boys with Alison Hurford’s under 13s squad taking the honours with a superb team gold and an individual bronze.

Champions! The under 13 boys’ team with their medals

Rufus Thomas led the way with that superb third place and with solid support from Joe Mead, Aidan Oscroft and Cole Edmonds ensured the team had won gold by a significant margin.

“On paper this was a very strong team consisting of nine lads who I felt would rise to the occasion,” said Alison.

“It was all about what colour the medal would be. Luckily once the race finished we did not have to wait long for official clarification that it was gold.

“So onwards and upwards the National Cross-Country will be a challenge but if you can all keep well and fit, with some fine tuning the future looks very exciting.”
