Havering’s Faye Fullerton took individual gold and helped the Essex senior women to a team bronze at the South of England Inter Counties Championships at Oxford on Saturday.

Fullerton finished in 21 minutes 15 seconds, nine seconds clear of Cambridge’s Victoria Knight with Winchester’s India Lee a few seconds back, on the muddy 6km course.

Jess Mitchell and Kate O’Neill also made the podium as Essex took silver in the under-17 race, with Mitchell clocking 18.35 for eighth place and O’Neill finishing 11th in 18.49.

Chelmsford’s Khai Mhlanga won the race, while Thurrock’s Amber Pullinger was ninth to ensure silver for Essex behind a dominant Kent squad.

Lydia Hallam (23.14) placed 11th in the under-20 event as Georgia Phillips (29.33) finished 57th on her Essex debut.

In the under-13 races Sydney Foley placed 21st in 12.36 in the girls’ race with Chloe Rand (14.33) marking her county debut with 71st while Alex Ford was 32nd in 11.47 and Matthew Blacklock took 75th on his county debut.

Molly Sweetman was 32nd in the under-15 girls’ competition with another county debutant Lily Bath in 43rd place.

Havering’s Lauren Deadman will add to her impressive tally of international vests when she represents England in the Iris Cross Cup event in Brussels on Sunday.

Deadman lines up alongside Claire Duck (Leeds), Kate Maltby (Bristol) and Sonia Samuels (Sale) in Belgium.
