Dom to Lead Young Guns


Byline: By Bill McGuirk

Defending Inter-Counties Cross-Country champion Dominic Bannister returns to the scene of his triumph later this month.

And, it's not just the senior event that Stevenson thinks the region can claim some glory.

"We have some excellent athletes in all age groups but it's the junior men's team which looks the strongest," he added.

"Once again this race is being used as the trials for the World Championships and it would be great if we could repeat, or better still, improve on last year's race, when we managed to get two athletes into the GB team. …
