THE Royston Crows AC under-13 girls team claimed bronze at the Hertfordshire County Relay Championships this week.

Danielle Calvert started proceedings with a fast first leg on the challenging 3km hilly course at Hayes and handed over to teammate Josie Pearson with the club in third place.

Pearson held this position following a gutsy display, before Lara Gibson took over and continued the momentum and as a result brought Royston home third.

Danielle Close also had an exceptional run coming second in the under-11 1500m race, where she claimed a silver medal.

Crows coach Wendy Gaisford said: "Danielle is a very talented athlete and this is a great start to her athletic career. The team performed way above expectations and saw off teams from larger athletics clubs such as Herts Phoenix and Stevenage.

"We are hoping that these results will encourage club members to compete in the cross country fixtures starting in October."
