Nether Green Primary

Nether Green Junior School won the trophy for the best overall primary school and Hunters Bar Y5 girls took team silver. In the secondary school category High Storrs Y7 boys took the victory and the Y9 girls were bronze medalists.

SYO CSC 2016

Well done to everyone who competed and helped at the Compass Sport Cup Final. It was a real club effort and a tremendous success. It is particularly impressive that we managed to finish 2nd in the competition, despite many members having worked on long shifts in the early rain. Huge thanks must go to organiser Melinda Riley and planner Colin Drury, who gave up hours and hours of their time. Thanks also to Peter Guillaume who designed and built an impressive race arena, Lesley Ward for handling all the entries and Mark Dakin for co-ordinating the huge volunteer force.

It was also great to see such a mix of experienced and new members running on behalf of the club and particularly pleasing that all the juniors completed the very challenging orange and green courses. Congratulations must go in particular to the 25 members who scored for the club: Nic Barber, Dane Blomquist, Andy Preston, Nick Barrable, Al Buckley, Michael Adams, Pete Tryner, Cat Taylor, Kim Baxter, Laura Goy, Rachael Rothman, Tim Tett, Charlie Adams, Nick Lightfoot, Colin Smith, Jenny Peel, Lucy Weigand, Juliette Soulard, Peter Gorvett, Bill Hanley, Brian Shaw, Louise Adams, Yasmin Field, Alex Elliott and Euan Tryner.
