The final cross country league race of the season saw a very strong turnout for the men, with 16 hardy FoT runners hitting the starting line. This strength in numbers delivered a really solid 2nd place behind Dulwich and ahead of Croydon. Top preformer was Conan, storming home in 8th position, followed by Steve Hill, Tom Claracq, Adam Fraser, Rich Curling, Haukur Heimisson, Mark Benton, Rob Gray, Simon Kenyon, Paul Seddon, Alex Bump, Jaco Geyer, Dave Matthews, Francis Kung, Mike Powell & Jamie Woodlands.
Thanks to everyone who braved the icy weather last week for the club's Annual General Meeting at Parson's Green. Following the elections, your committee for 2013 will be:
Simon Kenyon (Chairman); Sarah Watts (Vice-Chairman); Jane Osbourne (Secretary); Matt Bidwell (Treasurer); Katie Day (Membership); Toby Head (Coaching Coordinator); Phil Roker (Captain); Alistair Groves (Website); Annabel Kukulski (Social); Graeme Purdy and Barry Dick (Kit); Ben Turner (Fixtures); Vanessa Cardigan (Publicity).
Emma Williams continues in her role as Event Director, following the motion passed at the AGM converting this post into a committee appointment rather than an elected post. Euan Lees also continues in his appointed role as Director of Coaching.
Full minutes, and a copy of the Chairman's report, will be available on the website in the next few days.
Happy New Year to all our members!

The Ful-on Boys got the 2012-13 Surrey League Cross Country season off to a cracking start, with a big turnout of 20 athletes making their way down the M3 to Lightwater Country Park. Back in Division 3 this season, the guys pulled off a classy match win on a punishing hilly course, pushing Croydon Harriers and Dulwich Runners in to second and third place.
