DESPITE icy and earlier snowy conditions, Alnwick Junior Harriers assembled a stalwart team of U15 Boys for the North Eastern Counties Cross Country Championships at East Cramlington last Saturday.

This was the first time the championships have been held in Northumberland since 1994. They were last held in Alnwick, in conjunction with the inaugural European Cross Country Championships.

At the helm was the Championships U13 winner last year, Adam Weightman. Adam finished 15th the 4.2k course for the U15 Boys in 16m 3s, backed up by second counter for the club, Daniel Leng. Peter Skirrow and Daniel Mallen completed the team and as two of the younger runners gave commendable performances.

Results: U15 Boys: Adam Weightman (15th) 16:03; Daniel Leng (27th) 17:12; Peter Skirrow (39th) 18:21; Daniel Mallen (40th) 18:22.
