Havering’s Jess Mitchell maintained her excellent form with a silver medal for Essex under-17s at the Southern Inter-Counties Cross-Country Championships in Oxford.

Mitchell clocked 17 minutes 21 seconds, as clubmate Kate O’Neill claimed bronze in 17.35 in bitterly cold weather.

Thurrock’s Hayley Instance was fourth, with Havering’s Molly Sweetman 13th in 18.09 as Essex took team gold. Sophie Rand came home in 22nd place in 18.35.

Havering’s Matt Blacklock had his toughest race of the season, but a strong finish saw him take individual bronze in the under-13 boys’ race in 10.27.

Clubmate Shane Hart clocked 12.26, while Chloe Rand came home in 12.05 in the under-13 girls’ race and Tilly Canty (12.36) earned her Essex colours.

Havering members are set to return to their Essex Cross-Country League campaigns at Claybury on Saturday in a meeting hosted by Orion Harriers.
