Rachel gets selected for Essex!

17 January 2018 - By Martyn Byford

Congratulations to Rachel Sweatt who has been selected for the Essex Team at the Essex 20 Mile Championship on 4th March at Rochford which also doubles as an Inter Counties match involving, Kent, Suffolk, Norfolk, Sussex, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.

It will be Rachel’s first County Vest and is a fitting reward for her performances in the County Road Events last Autumn at Pleshey, where she became Ladies Champion,  and at Stebbing where she finished second.

To my knowledge Rachel is only the third Senior Lady to be awarded a vest whilst running for Witham in our 32 year history with the others being Lorraine Branch and Claire-Louise Boutell.

The good news is that she will be scoring for both Essex and Witham.

Hopefully it will not be too long before others follow her.
