Essex CC Champs (Seniors): Team gold for men


On Saturday, the men's winter team competed in the first major championship of the cross-country season, the Essex County Cross Country Championships. Hopes were high as a strong team toed the start line in a bid to make it a hat trick of county championship team titles. The course had remained reasonably firm throughout the winter but a long spell of rain on Friday night meant that surface water and some slippery, muddy patches were present.
