Report from Phil Marshall:
The club backed up their double team win from the first Oxfordshire Cross Country League fixture by again topping both the Women’s and Men’s tables after the second round match held at Kilkenny Country Park in Carterton.
Izzy Fry once again romped to victory in the Women’s race with a dominant performance leading from gun to tape to claim her second victory of the series. Jess Franklin followed Izzy home in second place (first V1) and Mireille Cook completed the scoring team in 11th (second V1).
In the Men’s race Newbury AC had to cope without their leading two runners from the first fixture, but they proved what great strength in depth they have by still taking the team win, lead by Matt Green finishing 4th in the 225 strong field. Phil Marshall in 16th and Mike Robbins in 18th also had impressive races with Steve Elsmere, Vladimir Tsagov, Jeff Bird and Andrew Ind making up the winning Newbury AC A team lineup and Irwin Fairclough finishing as 2nd V3.
There were also very strong junior performances for Newbury AC. Kitty Shepherd-Cross took the U17 girls victory, Luci Robertson was 2nd U15 girl and the U13 girls of Josie Robertson (4th), Sophie Bhatt (8th) and Phoebe Ryder (10th) claimed the fixture team win.
