A FORMER Grantham College student replicated his result from last year in the Midlands Under-20 Cross Country Championships at Leamington on Saturday.

Josh Norman, of Barkestone-le-Vale, was disappointed to not finish higher than third again, but he still put in a very good performance, only bettered by two regular England under-20 international athletes.

He put in a valiant effort over the tough, undulating course and only missed out on second placein the final 50 metre run-in of the 8km course, finishing in a time of 28min 57sec.

Josh also led the Leicestershire Owls to second place in the team competition.
