Havering trio shine

Lauren Deadman inspired Essex’s women to the South Inter Counties Cross Country title at Biggleswade.

Havering Mayesbrook’s Deadman led from start to finish to win individual gold in 21mins 32secs.

Clubmate Harriet Scott finished just over a minute behind in 11th place, with Sara Luck 14th to contribute to Essex’s victory, with Colchester’s Sarah Stradling.

Robyn Matson ran well to finish in 22nd place and was fourth among the under-23s.

Lydia Hallam’s fine form continued in the under-15 race, as she finished 11th to help Essex to another gold.

But Sarah Wilson and Heidi Surman-Wells were forced to pull out due to illness.

Havering’s Alex Law shone at the Metaswitch Indoor Open at Lee Valley.

Law won the under-15 boys’ 60m hurdles in 9.06secs, taking almost a second off his best and setting a new club record.

He improved his long jump best three times, finishing with 6.17m, and also leapt 11.87m in the triple jump.

Alex Hewitt improved his 60m best to 8.48secs on his under-15 debut, finishing third in the B final.

And Massi Dendani was close to his 800m best, clocking 2mins 0.04secs in his first under-20 outing.
