We may be lesser known now, but not for much longer with performances like these! Well done to our talented u17 ladies – they’ve really put Birtley AC on the map today!

Match report from their coach Tom Millmore:-

“Two big steps forward for Birtley AC today. The first time we’ve had a full Under 20 Mens team competing and it was at the National XC Relays. Also the first time we’ve had National English Champions, the U17 Womens first team. A very good day!

Shaun, Conna and Adrian finished about middle of the field, don’t know what the correct position was as there was a mix up with the numbers at the start. Well done lads, and here’s to the few years ahead as U20’s and the many as Seniors.

Under 17 Women raced out of their skins, Danielle Elliott was competing for the first time as a Birtley athlete and ran a fantastic 1st leg to hand over to Sophie Burnett, who moved through the field to hand to Lydia Turner in 13th place, Lydia ran the fastest leg of the day to bring the team home in 1st place. Well worth the travel and there were 4 car loads of proud and happy Athletes, Parents and Coach travelling back to the North East.”
