Newham & Essex Beagles men's team at the Met League race


Newham & Essex Beagles starlet Revee Walcott-Nolan showed her cross-country skills once again with a magnificent performance at the latest Met League race in Uxbridge.

The tall, under-23 runner battled home in second place in the race and impressed team manager Tony Shiret.

“There are about three women who are head and shoulders above the best and Revee is one of them,” he said.

“She is a very talented runner and considering her main event is the 800 metres, she does pretty well in the cross-country. I can see her going under two minutes in the 800 next season, but she could do the 1,500m as well.”

Walcott-Nolan finished just a second behind winner Naomi Taschimowitz in 19.25, while she was backed up by Amber Wallace, who finished 20th in 21.52.

Also in Beagles colours were Evie Grice, who was 45th in 23.01, while F60 vet Catherine Apps was 173rd in 29.41. Natalie Traylen came home in 184th, clocking 30.42, while completing the Beagles team was Shelley Jameson in 213th in 34.14. That gave the women fifth on the day and seventh overall.

For the men, it was a mixed day with one good individual display, but with the team lacking in strength.

“I was a bit disappointed with the result,” added Shiret. “We were lacking in a little in our stronger runners on the day.”

The best run was from Eoin Pearce who came home in 24.56 to take 12th place on the day.

“Eoin ran well on a tricky course,” said Shiret. “It had a ski slope on it as well as a river to cross, so it was a bit different.”

David Weir was 36th in 25.32 with James Downing 50th in 26.04.

In 74th was Nzimah Akpan (26.50), with Andre Coggins (27.00) just four places behind and Wayne Bell (27.09) in 87th.

Jad El-Houssaimi (27.57) was 125th and Yonis Mohamed (29.30) 194th, while Alex Moralel (30.53) was 260th and Francois Turpault back in 299th (31.59).

Completing the team was Derek Darnell (33.43) who was 302nd and Derek Gwilliam (37.52) who was 448th of the 485 finishers.

“I thought we would do better, but there are still two more to go and hopefully we can get a promotion for one of the teams this season,” said Shiret.

The fourth Met League race will take place at Wormwood Scrubs in West London on January 13.
