English Schools Cross Country Championships, Sefton Park, Liverpool 14th March 2020

Six club athletes were in action for the Essex Schools' team at Saturday's prestigious English Schools Cross Country Championships, which went ahead despite the Coronavirus outbreak at Liverpool's very muddy Sefton Park on Saturday

Tilly Canty was highest placed club athlete, finishing 66th in the junior girls' race, and third Essex scorer, to make a memorable English Schools' debut. Sydney Foley led home a trio of club athletes in the Intermediate Girls' race in 89th, just two seconds and three places in front of training partner Natalie Sewell, with Maddie Barker in 211th. 

In the Inter Boys' event Charlie Howell was 221st as Matthew Blacklock came home in 297th.
