The UCL student was first Brit home in the U20 men's trial, second to Eritrea's Abel Tsegay. The first six guaranteed a place on the start line at the European Championships later this month in Samokov, Bulgaria.

In parkrun action, Omar Harhara was first home at Riddlesdown making it two wins in as many weeks.

There was also double runners-up finishes for Alan Burn and Jessica Moore in the men's and women's categories at Lloyd Park.

At the Downs League, five Harriers were in action at Epsom Downs. Kyra Sethna McIntosh finished sixth U11 girl with Leanne Moore 14th. The pair lie seventh and eleventh respectively in the overall standings.

Isaac Flanagan finished tenth in the U13 boy's race, while Jordan O'Dongo (8th) and Jessica Moore (4th) enjoyed top eight finishes in the U15's competition.

At the Pirie 10, David Brown led the small Croydon contingent in 12th in a field of 113 finishers in 63 minutes exactly.

Neil Aikman (27th, 70:03), Colin Oxlade (55th, 74:16), Keith Brown (91st, 84:19) and Norman Hemming (102nd, 89:29) also completed the ten-mile cross-country challenge.

Last Friday, more than 130 people attending the club's annual awards dinner at Trinity School.

Double European gold medallist Martyn Rooney was in attendance, and he scooped the Jack Lisney Cup for the best Male over-21 performance for the fifth time in six seasons.

Hardworking official Carol Munns was awarded the Lisney Salver for Outstanding contribution for her many years of officiating and volunteering.

The Advertiser Shield for U17 women's cross-country went to Stevie Lawrence, and the John Matthews Cup for the U17 men's 3000m went to Omar Harhara.
