Press Report: Fixtures in the Balance

WEST CHESHIRE Athletic Club will know next month whether this year’s County Cross Country Championships will take place.

The Cheshire County Athletics Association were hoping to stage the annual fixture at Betley Farm, Staffordshire, on Saturday, February 20, but that is no longer possible because of lockdown restrictions.

A decision to confirm arrangements and open entries or to cancel the event set for Saturday, April 17, will now be made when the Cheshire AA committee next meets on Monday, March 15.

And Cheshire has been asked by Greater Manchester to host the North West Road Relay Championships on Sunday, September 12, at Birchwood, Warrington, subject to the availability of the venue and Covid-19 rules.  

West Cheshire AC’s first scheduled league match, subject to restrictions, is planned for Saturday, April 24, at Preston, which is the first of five rounds in the Under 13/Under 15 Youth Development League Merseyside Division, with other matches taking place on Saturday, May 15 (at Bebington Oval), Saturday, June 5, (at Ellesmere Port Sports Village), Saturday, July 17, (at Bebington Oval), and Saturday, September 4 (at Wavertree, Liverpool).

West Cheshire AC’s Under 17/Under 20 Youth Development League Merseyside Division five-round campaign gets under starters orders at Preston on Sunday, May 2, with other fixtures scheduled to be held on Sunday, May 30 (at Ellesmere Port Sports Village), Sunday, June 27, (at Bebington Oval), Sunday, July 25 (at Ellesmere Port Sports Village), and Sunday, September 5, (at Wavertree, Liverpool).

West Cheshire AC’s North Premier West League squad will open their season on Saturday, May 22, at Blackburn, before heading to Preston on Saturday, June 19, then hosting round three at Ellesmere Port Sports Village on Sunday, July 11, and concluding the campaign at Trafford, on Sunday, August 1.
