Rugby Editorial 29th Nov, 2018   0

RUGBY & Northampton’s men’s team finished runners-up at the second round of the Three Counties Cross-Country League.

On his return from injury, Dominic Jones won the men’s race, held at Wellingborough & District Athletics Club, with 17-year-old team-mate Abedom Beyene just behind him in third place as R&N claimed two of the top three positions.

David Ball (18th), Chris Lamb (25th), Peter Currington (26th) and Peter Adams (28th) all finished in the top 30.

Joe Musgrove (31st) and James Wizard (34th), who compete in the M17-19 category, were then only just off their pace as R&N scored 166 points to finish as runners-up.

Angela Copson was the first of the women’s team to cross the line in 28th position.

Helen Jones was three places behind her, with Jodie McGrath (39th) and Helen Needham (53rd) completing the course to finish in seventh position (women’s team) and help achieve a combined fourth place overall for R&N.

After two meetings, R&N now find themselves fifth in the combined competition ahead of the next meeting on Sunday, December 16 at North Herts Road Runners.
