20 very eager, but very nervous, U11s raced for the club on Saturday, 9 girls and 11 boys.
For the majority of them this was their first experience of racing, having only joined the club during the previous Covid-interrupted year.

The children performed admirably and most importantly everyone enjoyed the day.

We had some superb performances, topped by Nancy C who came 1st in the girls' race.
We had six girls in the top 15 including three in the top 10; 4th Ella H, 8th Martha B and 9th Amelie A.
This helped the girls to take 2nd place in the team competition (Nancy, Ella and Martha) and also to take 4th place (Amelie plus Evie P and Olivia P).

In the boys race, our top three finishers were Harvey B 13th, Will G 14th and Gus F 17th, this helped the boys to a valiant 4th place in the team competition.

For many of the above this was their last race as an U11 (for some it was their first and last!) and they have been a credit to the U11s,
I am sure they will develop further in the U13s - well done and good luck in the U13s!
