Congratulations to Dalis, Seamus, Abdi and Rosie who are this year’s champions in their age groups in the Gwent Cross Country League!!
This, as well as the team winners, was decided at the final race of the season at Blaise Castle, where Yate AC runners helped Westbury Harriers put in an excellent performance!

On the boys side both Charlie Savage-Swaine & Akira Bees made their league debuts for Westbury and finished a very impressive 6th & 14th from a field of 71 starters, with George Peacock 13th.
Seamus Robinson led the u15 boys team to victory and also became overall champion with a fine 1st place at Blaise. Ceredig Jones 19th, Alexander Wilson 24th, Artie Savage-Swaine 31st, Christopher Page 42nd.
