Six Havering AC youngsters competed for Essex at the prestigious English Schools’ Cross-Country Championships at a very muddy Sefton Park in Liverpool on Saturday.

Tilly Canty (12.08) was the highest placed of the group, finishing 66th in the junior girls’ race as the third Essex scorer on a memorable debut.
