 The 3rd fixture of the Majestic Travel North Wales Cross Country League took place last Saturday at the Bangor University sports field in Treborth. The course, on the banks of the Menai Straits proved to be a really testing course for the travelling Bro Dysynni athletes.


Bro Dysynni ladies team continued their excellent team and individual running, third team place just 1 point behind Telford and 4 behind Wrexham. This performance cemented their position in the top 3 clubs in the league going into the final two races. The ladies veteran team lay in 2nd place in their class.


Rosie Naish (Veteran Female Over-40) had yet another top class run finishing 5th in 21.12mins, just pipped by Wrexham's Alison Whitelaw on the final climb. Paula Jeffs (21.43mins) running her 1st cross country of the season finished 8th. These girls were well backed up by their team colleagues with Glenda Davies 18th in 23.35mins overtaking clubmate Andrea Goode (21st in 23.54mins) going into the final lap. Debbie Evans was 37th in 26.00mins, Brenda Jones was 40th in 27.49mins, Yolanda Marconi-Nolan was 44th in 28.30mins and Marj Griffiths, 49th in 31.30mins, all providing excellent depth to the senior ladies and veteran ladies teams.


In the mens race it was Adrian Bailey of Bro Dysynni's day. He knew he needed to be at his best to do well, as his rivals for the league title were all there on the start line - Colin Donnelly, someone he had never led home in a race, Emlyn Roberts who is in top form and Andrew Walling coming back to top class form. However, winning in 31.31mins, Bailey was over 100 metres clear of Donnelly and Walling with Emlyn Roberts fourth.


Colin Evans (44.22mins) and Dave Brown (44.29mins) battled throughout, with Graeme Stringer (45.12mins) and Andy Unwin (47.29mins) completing another good, solid performance by the Bro Dysynni lads.


Running for U.W.I.C. in the Micky Morris Relays, Bro Dysynni's Alun Llyr Williams anchored his team into 4th place when running 21.30mins for his 6k leg.
