North Somerset’s under 17 men strike road relay silver

NORTH Somerset’s under 17 men’s squad covered themselves in glory at the Midland Counties Road Relay Championships.

The team of Oliver Lock, Matthew Howard and Alfie Hocking (pictured left) won a superb silver behind Charnwood as they produced one of the best results for the club in the event held around Sutton Park, Birmingham.

Lock got the team off to a solid start finishing seventh on stage one (12mins 42secs) putting Howard in the perfect position to carve through his rivals with a superb run to move up to third with a sizzling 12:19, the fifth fastest time of the day.

Alfie Hocking then kept his cool to move up another place on the final stage with a time of 12:51 for a great achievement.

For North Somerset’s under 13 girls it was a frustrating case of what might have been.

Keira Devereux (pictured right) gave them a blistering start clocking a time of 14mins 45secs – the second fastest of the day – to bring the team home in first place.

Millie Redman ran 15:30 to keep them in second as they were overtaken by eventual champions Wolverhampton & Bilston but sadly the NS girls didn’t even make the podium – as they didn’t have a third runner.
