Walden Junior Tri members were in action over two days at Nottingham University to secure eliite junior and youth rankings for the start of the season.

And Jack Stanton-Stock hoped to score early league points and make a mark as he goes into the 16-19 age group.

An 800m pool-based swim of 9.38 put him in 40th place for the bike-run on day two, where he was just over a minute behind the leaders as he ran into T1.

The 20k bike course had a few technical turns and Stanton-Stock moved up to 16th coming into T2.

A solid 5k run left him 13th overall, which converted to fourth in the youth B group ahead of the Super Series League and next big race in Llanelli.

Helena Dyce was 15th in the Youth B category to secure her Super League start, with Ben Allen 34th.

Ethan Riley was a very respectable 28th in the Youth group, with Innes Dunlop 64th in the girls’ and Joshua Vail in 88th place.
