A large field of 324 men contested match 3 of the MANCHESTER CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE last Saturday afternoon. A home fixture for us on a course designed by Dave Rodgers which included 3 crossings of the in the stream in WYTHENSHAWE PARK. You can see how they coped and look out for Dave R's own crossing of the muddy waters.
MATT BARNES had no trouble with the course scoring a pretty easy win from DAVE NORMAN. But it was particularly pleasing to see our no.1 GARETH RAVEN continuing his great recovery from injury with a superb run working through to 3rd.
Meanwhile, after a week of rest and recuperation nursing my calf strain , a test run pf a couple of miles on the grass was tried, tested and went well.
