for the forthcoming National Cross-Country Championships, scheduled to be held at Temple Newsham Park,
near Leeds on Saturday 17th March 2018.
Northumberland are amongst those squads, and seventeen of their
named athletes belong to the ranks of Morpeth Harriers.
Twelve in each age group are named, from which only eight in each will be eligible to travel and run on the day,
so it is hoped that those from the club meet the selectors final needs and receive their richly deserved honour.
Most of the clubs contingent, are in the Senior Boys section, where no less than six are formally named.
They are Rory Leonard, who is Northumberland Champion, Kieran Hedley,
Northumberland Silver Medallist, Taylor Glover, Northumberland Bronze medallist, Matthew Waterfield,
Matthew Briggs, and Alex Cunningham.
In the Intermediate Boys squad, three Morpeth Harriers have made the final twelve.
They are Ross Charlton, Daniel Melling and Tom Balsdon.
There are also three from the club named in the Junior Boys final twelve.
Euan Duffin, Dylan Davies, and Dylan Gooding have met the selectors requirements.
Five Morpeth Harriers are named for the Girls events.
Four are included in the Intermediate Girls line-up.
Northumberland Champion Holly Peck heads the squad,
and is joined by club colleagues Lily Heaton, Ella Duffield, and Kirsty Duffield.
Gracie Hufton is included in the Senior Girls squad.
Further information regarding final selection will reach athletes a few days prior to the event.
