Newham & Essex Beagles Met Cross Country League manager Tony Shiret heaped praise on Revee Walcott-Nolan after a fine third place in Welwyn Garden City.

The second event of this year’s competition took place in Hertfordshire last weekend, with plenty of Beagles impressing.

It was Walcott-Nolan, though, who took the headlines having clocked 21 minutes and 53 seconds to finish third in the women’s race.

And Shiret was pleased with the performance from the second-claim running, helping Beagles claim valuable points.

“Revee did really well in her race, but she is a class act and always finishes in the top three,” said the team manager.

“The course was a little funny in that there were a few times when you looked to be going back on yourself, so it was a bit confusing to watch early on, but you soon got to grips with it.”

Also in action for the women were second-claim runners Bettina Rottweiler (14th, 23.15) and Amber Wallace (30th, 24.10), as well as Adele Stach-Kevitz (181st, 30.40), Natalie Traylen (221st, 34.41) and Shelley Jameson (243rd, 37.19) in a field of almost 250.

The scoring ‘A’ team for the women finished sixth overall in Division Two, with the squad now up to eighth in the table.

For the men in Welwyn Garden City, it was Dale King-Clutterbuck who lead the charge, finishing 22nd after clocking 25.01.

There were also top 100 placings for Jake Waldron (30th, 25.29) and Eoin Pierce (25.32), as well as second-claim runners James Downing (51st, 26.15), David Weir (65th, 26.28), Nzimah Akpan (72nd, 26.34), Kieran McMorran (83rd, 26.56) and John Cove (84th, 27.01).

Second-claim runner Robert Umeokafor (114th, 27.52) also completed the race, as did Francois Tupault (345th, 33.10) and Liban Samater (355th, 33.27) in a field of over 500.

The men’s scoring ‘A’ team finished top in Division Two, moving up to second in the overall standings in the process.

And Shiret was also pleased with the performances from the men, adding: “Dale ran really well.

“A lot of the guys running were used to running other distances, so it was a little tougher for them.”

The results in Welwyn Garden City will be a welcome boost to both the women’s and the men’s team ahead of the next fixture.
