Ladies Team have a chance of promotion to the Premier League - currently ln 3rd spot but only half a point off second and with a superior count back.

Terry Forrest is currently 2nd in the Men's table and Becci Winter is in 1st spot in the Ladies League. Karen Ball is second in the F35 Category and Kenny Lawrenson 2nd in the M70 (despite being 75!). Fingers crossed. Check out full details on the Peco XC pages.
