Just a quick note to say well done to every single Harrier junior who took part in the XC at Clayton Vale today, especially Chloe Bingham (who I hadn't even realised was going to turn up).

Colin Robinson told me today that the next fixture in the S.E.L. has been switched from Lilford Park (Leigh) to Leigh Sports Village. The date is still the same, Jan 15th.

Harriers Sportshall success

A record number of Rochdale Harriers junior athletes took part in the 3 event series of Sportshall events held at Sportcity, the last of which was held in late January.

In the series our U15 boys overcame a 19 point deficit after the second event to beat Sale Harriers Manchester by the narrow margin of 5 points and to thus finish first overall. Their points tally of 211 was the highest scored by any club/age category in the whole of the Sportshall event.

Not to be outdone by their male counterparts the U15 girls, who were amongst a cluster of clubs vying for second and third place after the second event, took flight from the clubs around them in the last event and finished a comfortable second overall. This represents a tremendous performance as all of those who competed were competing as U15 girls for the first time, who knows what next year holds !!

Rochdale also enjoyed success in the U13 boys age category where, in a mirror image of the U15 girls position after 2 events, the boys excelled in the final event to finish in second place overall.

An honourable mention should also go to the U11 girls who finished in fourth place overall, who but for a slow start after the first event could well have finished in third overall.
