A FORMER Grantham College regained the Leicestershire Cross-Country Championships under-20 title at the weekend.

Now studying at Leeds Metropolitan University, Josh Norman, of Barkestone-le-Vale, won the event held at Bosworth Park on Saturday.

Josh overcame the very muddy conditions to retake the under-20 crown that he lost last year.

More importantly, he finished fourth overall in the senior men’s race, recording a time of 36min 16sec for the 10km course, a three-place improvement on last year’s race.

Josh also assisted his Leicestershire Owls Club in retaining the senior men’s team title.
