id654-Surrey Mens CC League D2 M2 Epsom Downs November 10th 2007 Report

Written by DB   

At Bob's request,they came from far and wide,to redress the balance - and they did!

Mirroring our Senior Ladies,who completed their race a couple of hours earlier in Cranford Park(see Report here),our Men pulled us up by the bootlaces;and by finishing just a few points behind E&E in 4th place,we are now into 6th overall(2 of 9 go down) and a little more comfortable in mid-table(though there's still much to be done).

The Full results are not currently in a format to go on any website but Bob has copies from DMV,the hosts,if anyone wants them.A copy will go on the NB at Kingsmeadow shortly,too.

In detail,then,Mark Reed was again in single figures as he has been in his last 4 races recently and led us in(8th-31.09),followed by Mike Maranzano(17th-32.11),Andy Arbour(18th-32.19),David Henley(28th-33.10),Ross Shaddick(33rd-33.47),Ant Budarkiewicz(38th-34.02),Graham Simpson(39th-34.08),Matt Hyett(61st-35.54),Peter Wilkins(109th-39.30) &,completing The Ten,David Greenfield(124th-41.26). We were not skimping this time with an enormous 17 runners answering the call - Frank Schubert(133rd-43.07),Rupert Bole(134th-43.22),Chairman John Ratcliff(after 3 years abs.)(136th-43.29),Graeme Horstead(138th-43.58),David Barrington(146th-46.20),Dave Gibbons(147th-46.28) & Geoff Reed(148th-46.56) were the addenda - and,no,we did not have the last three as there was one more poor soul behind us!!!

Ostensibly,because we had the Downs League the next day,we had no YAs at all!!!!
