2018 Essex Schools CC, Hylands Park

After a lot of rain in the days leading up to this event, it left the course very muddy so heavy going was the order of the day for our young athletes.

The Inter Boys event over 6k had six of our members racing. Joe Geller and Kai Boggon got a good start and at the halfway point at 3k they shared the lead with Leon Wheeler and Jack Stock. The group stuck together going into the 2nd lap until triathlete Jack Stock made a break, splitting the group up. Although Jack went on to win with Leon Wheeler close behind in 2nd, our lads both had great runs. Joe, claiming his first All England Schools vest for Essex, was just 11 seconds behind the winner, while Kai was 4th, 17 seconds down on Joe, and he should be very happy with his run as he was the first bottom year to finsh.

A rather cloudy but dry day greeted our squad of 45 young athletes to this flat parkland course which contained a muddy section midway through the races. It turned out to be a superb day for us, with the club maintaining the lead in the Howard Williams Junior Trophy, leading by four points with just one match to go. We also maintain our leads on the Under 11 and Under 13 Girls plus Under 13 Boys and Junior Boys with one match remaining.
