Surrey League Titles Galore for Walton!

Outstanding results for Walton AC in the Surrey Cross Country League as all male teams win their divisions, whilst Emment, Woolmer and Marks claim individual honours.

Walton Young Athletes secure League titles!!

Outstanding team effort was the order of the day on a cold and chilly afternoon at Wimbledon Common and the boys did not let themselves down.

As for the first time in the same season we secured both the under 13 and under 15/17 team titles in emphatic style and so thoroughly deserved.

In the under 13 boys race Ollie Emment reigned supreme with another victory and in doing so claimed the overall individual title. Ollie was supported by Christopher Vaughan in 10th, Alex Histon-Allvey 12th, Harry Tuckman 14th, Jacob Gelona 27th and Callum Stewart 34th.

The under 15/17 boys were lying in second place going into this final fixture, just 5 points behind South London Harriers. The boys were having none of it, determination to defend their league title they romped to the league title with some great packing.

First home was Ben Fitzpatrick in 3rd closely followed by Ben Marks in 4th. This performance by Ben Marks secured him the Runners Up spot in the overall individual competition. Having his best run of this season and next home was Ollie Coppellotti in 8th, closely followed by Joshua Taylor 11th, Jack Gemmell 12th and Ross Hurst 13th. Rueben Leyland was next across the line in 25th, Joseph Daws-Twilley 28th, Archie Forsyth 32nd, Ben Palmer 36th and Jack Fernandes 39th.

Huge congratulations to all the boys, including those not their today (Michael Cottrill, Edward Dawson, Tom Jones, Finn & Josh Punton, Harvey Ball and Ben Shepherd) who ran this season and thanks to all the parents for their outstanding support.

Meanwhile, over in Croydon, the men’s team cemented their promotion back to division 2 with overall victory in division 3, in spite of a weakened team that still managed third on the day. Duncan Woolmer again led the team home in 3rd place to claim overall 2nd position, supported by Matt Reed (8th), Matt Pharaoh (20th), Jon Ladley (21st), Isaac Mammen (25th), Rob Lovegrove (30th), James Harvey (36th), Chris de Mauny (40th), Jonny Bevan (130th) and Adam McCarthy (137th). Matt Pharaoh and Isaac Mammen were 1st and 2nd U20 for the season.

The women and girls were at Richmond Park earlier in the day, and again suffered from low numbers, however quality not quantity was the order of the day, with Jo Locker, Lizzie Amos and Guilaine Sheward plaing 19th, 33rd and 154th in the senior division 2 race, while Charlotte Vaughan was 4th in the U17 race, and Lani Cardwell 27th in the U15 race. The U13 girls completed the racing, with Bella Wiles 19th and Erin Simper 23rd.
