Inter-Counties Fell Championship 2017-Team Manager’s report

Broughton Inter Counties 2017

The senior teams travelled north after the Lancs champs at Pendle in high spirits both women and men's team had a realistic chance of winning medals in both the individual and team stakes. The ladies team comprised of Louisa Powell Smith, Nichola Jackson, Victoria Mousley and Ruth Jones.  1st counter was Nichola who came home in 4th with a great run but just outside the individual medals.  Ruth Jones had a stormer and finished 7th overall and took Gold in the under 23s.  Louisa who had been suffering with a cold the week before after winning the lancs champs came home in 19th.  The ladies missed out on a medal by 5 points. Victoria Mousley also ran well, finishing 21st overall.  Liz Greenwood had to pull out in the last week before the event.  

The Men were hoping to go one better at least and snatch a medal.  They duly delivered in the most exciting of finishes.  Chris Arthur continued his brilliant year with 5th overall, Chris Holdsworth then came 7th meaning it was down to Gary Priestley and Ben Mounsey as both Yorkshire and Lancashire were locked on 12 points.  Gary had set off more conservatively and worked his way through the field and he overtook Ben on the second lap.  He was then involved in a sprint for the line and he managed to hold on to get the Gold medal for Lancs by one point.  Such was his level of effort he threw up straight after finishing.  You can give nothing less than everything you've got.  Callum Davidson also had an excellent run finishing 19th overall and took the bronze under 23 medal.  Tom Corrigan struggled with a groin injury but still finished a creditable 29th.  

I would like to thank all the runners for their efforts and also Chris Barnes for organising the ladies team.
