The Lytham contingent performed superbly and their were great debut runs by Zane Seddon, Aaran and Daniel Forshaw, Isla Gordon and Harry Fellows.

A Cross Country First for Ella

Ella MouldingThe cross country season got of to an early start for Ella Moulding on Saturday when she opted for an early race in the first of the Red Rose League series of races. Leigh Harriers, the race organisers, had used their imagination when designing the course which contained a good mixture of trails, woodland paths and fields and as well as an interesting course, runners were also treated to almost perfect weather conditions. Ella was in the U15 girls race and she soon established herself in a good position just behind the leading girl and this was to be the story for almost all of the 4K course. It was only in the final 100m that a superb turn of pace could not be matched by the leading girl and Ella raced across the line to record her first cross country victory in a Lytham Vest in a time of 15:26.
