On what was a pretty bleak day for Sussex teams the Brighton & Hove Senior Women did very well at Aldershot on Saturday in the South of Thames Senior Team championship. They just missed the podium finishing fourth with 165 points to Kent’s winning total of 114. Seventeen year old Emma Gill led the team home in 13th place with Paula Blackledge placing 21st and Phoebe Connolly 27th.

Normally only four runners score in women’s team races, however here it was six to score over the 7½-mile course. The team was completed by Rosie Neill 30th, Cathy Ulliott, who was the second W50 in 32nd and Judith Carder who won the W60 title in 42nd.

Sussex athletes took the top two places in the M40 group with Howard Bristow in second place in 39:15s.

altCongratulations to Amber Anning who was voted 'Young Female Sports Personality of the Year' by the British Athletics Supporters Association (BASC) for her 2017 season.

Amber, a member of the club since she was nine, travelled to Coventry on her 17th birthday to receive the award.

This year, representing England, she won two gold medals at the World Schools' Championships. She followed this up with a 400m bronze medal at the Commonwealth Youth Games in the Bahamas. Her time of 53.68s was a Sussex Senior Women’s record and was the fastest time run by a British 16-year-old girl since 1984. She also took home a silver relay medal from the Caribbean and ended the season with a national title and club record of 23.76s over 200m and the World Lead (U18) time of 37.79s over 300m when, representing England South, she smashed the School Games Championship Best.

Amber ended 2017 topping the UK U17 rankings over 200m, 300m and 400m and ranked second over 100m. Her time over this distance of 11.79s in her one race of the season, equalled the 14-year-old Sussex U17 record, held by Crawley's Carley Wenham.
