Youngsters Dominates Opener

Hercules Wimbledon Athletic Club’s young athletes dominated the opening East Surrey League cross country meeting of the season when they took the team honours at Lloyd Park, Croydon, on Saturday, packing three of the top four placings, reports Tom Pollak.

Zac Purnell, 15, taking a break from duathlons and in his first cross country race since running in the South of England Championships at Parliament Hill Fields back in January, showed fine form to finish just three seconds behind Surrey and South of England champion Harley Norman from Epsom in the two miles race, to lead Hercules Wimbledon to team victory. Purnell clocked 10 minutes 56 seconds and with Henry Silverstein third in 11:05, Sam Barker fourth in 11:16 and Lucas Jeffs seventh in 11:27, Hercules Wimbledon comfortably took the team honours with 16 points from Herne Hill (31) and Sutton & District (57).
