As always the New Year opens with the major county cross-country championships and again these are being held at Bexhill Down on Saturday. The weather has not been kind to us in the last couple of weeks and the rain will make the almost permanently muddy course even more testing. However the conditions will do little to deter the athletes and both the senior events could be corkers for the individual titles. Jon Pepper (Brighton Phoenix), who has not been seen over the country in Sussex this season but has had an impressive victory in Surrey to his name, will be aiming to add a fifth successive Sussex title to his name and if he does he will rank alongside Brighton & Hove’s Andrew Bristow as winner of five titles. He will still be little short of fellow Brighton & Hove athletes Hugh Foord and Peter Standing who have both won nine titles.

Crawley’s Beth Crocker struck silver at the South of England Indoor combined events championships at Lee Valley at the weekend with series of fine efforts. With a 60m hurdles in 9.68s a high jump of 1.62m shot put of 10.09m, a long jump of 5.43m and fine 800m clocking of 2:26.5s ..
Silvers for Ferroni and Taylor at South of Thames - Large field for Alf Palmer
A brilliant run from Stephen Ferroni saw him join an elite band of Sussex runners who have won a medal in the South of Thames Senior Cross-country championship at Tonbridge on Saturday. The eighteen year old Brighton & Hove runner is certainly the youngest Sussex runner to get amongst the medals ..
