THIS WEEKEND
West Cheshire AC members are being urged to represent their club at this Saturday’s Cheshire Track and Field League match at Ellesmere Port Sports Village which kicks off with a 3,000m race at 11.45am.

EVERYONE WILL BE USING THE FIELD FOR CAR PARKING VIA THE EPSV STAFF CAR PARK ENTRANCE – NOT THE MAIN ENTRANCE OFF THE ROUNDABOUT.

Eight West Cheshire AC members – Jodi Bemand, Fatoumatta Bojang, Stephanie Jones, Uzezi Onomerike, Carys Roberts, Charlie Hyde, Matthew Webb, and Jamie Richardson, will represent Cheshire this Sunday at Middlesbrough in the Northern Inter Counties Championships.

And the latest Club Summer Off Road League Fixture takes place at Langley Fete this Sunday (2.30pm start).

Best wishes to everyone involved!
