Unfortunately the ladies suffered the commentators curse (see January newsletter) and were pipped at the post (on countback) by Wharfedale Harriers for the second promotion position.  It was a season of 2 halves really with us getting a flying start (thanks in part to Hannah Oldroyd winning the first 2 races) with 2nd place at Nostell Priory and Golden Acre but then fading away a little with 3rd, 4th and 6th places whereas Wharfedale were just the opposite starting off with 6th and 5th places but then coming through strongly with 3 consecutive 2nd places to pip us.  However, the ladies did brilliantly to finish 2nd in the Vets premier league.

On the individual front Bernie Bowden finished 3rd F45 in the series and Helen Love 2nd F60.  For the men Andy Brown (V45) and Stuart Dunbar (V55) both won their categories and Martin Fillingham achieved a podium position with 3rd V45.

The men finished 3rd which is probably as good as we could have hoped for at the start of the season.  We also finished 3rd in the vets league
