Saffron Striders beginners face the camera


Saffron Striders beginners group took on the Kevin Henry 5k League meeting at Carver Barracks last week.

The race signalled the end of their 10-week training under coach Mike Bradley, with each doing themselves proud to seal a fifth-placed finish.

That allowed Striders to maintain their place in the table with two races left and the club hopes to see many of the beginners back at the Fast 5 Mile race.

Striders host the event at Carver Barracks on September 30 and it is open to allcomers. The club meets outside the Lord Butler Fitness & Leisure Centre every Tuesday at 7.45pm for an 8pm start, all welcome.

*Quendon Bowling Club had mixed fortunes in the Steeple Bumpstead League as two 8-2 wins were followed by 8-2 losses to Cornard A and Castle Hedingham D.

In the North West Essex League they lost 6-2 to Elsenham A, ahead of games against Sudbury and Saffron Walden and the Richard Walters Memorial on July 29.
