The course was very muddy and the Birkett provided us with a
magnificent water jump, all of which helped to give us a really enjoyable and friendly run.
Wallasey's turn-out was much improved this week, and the result shows that we have the necessary talent if only the people concerned would make an effort to turn out. The individual winner was Wallasey's county representative in last year's inter-county championship, Roy Parry.
This young junior should establish himself as one of Cheshire's outstanding distance runners as he seems to be greatly improved through the running he does in the army. Roy won be nearly half a minute from Briston of Warrington in 32 mins. 50 secs.
The result of the match was a win for Warrington with 33 points; Wallasey were second with 53 points and Waterloo third with 93 pts.
lt is perhaps important to note that Wallasey's six counting men were all juniors, this augurs well for the future.
Wallasey's men were:-1st, Roy Parry; 4th, John Lynch; a welcome return to form, 8th, Ken Ledward; quite a surprise as we have not seen much of him owing to hockey; 9th, Dave Standfast who is showing some of the form he produced at school.
We also finished three seniors who, though they have improved a great deal could not hold the younger runners.
Perhaps the outstanding feature of the match was to see Ram pursued by all the youths and boys who had been acting as markers.
They urged him on so much that he made up nearly 70 yards on a Waterloo runner and only just failed to catch him.
Finally, the course will be well known to the few who turned out against Sutton Harriers as the run will be over the same country.
