In the Wallasey Athletic Club cross-country championships last Saturday, Ken Poyning showed more of the good form he is having this season, winning the boys' race. Second was Brian Anthony and third Brian Shaw. The sealed handicap for the race was won by Ron Edwards, who was placed in fifth postion.
Fourth and fifth places were gained by A. Scott and Ken Tunstall. Ken unfortunately was not up to his usual form or he would have been placed further up the field. Sixth and seventh positions were gained by Dave White and Phil Townsend respectively. The winner of the youth's sealed handicap was Tony Farrell.
The senior race resulted in a win for John Lynch, who covered the nine miles in a time of 54 minutes 15 seconds, a good time for the course. Second was Ray Scammell and third Harry Lutas, Bob Fullerton gained fourth place and also won the sealed handicap.
