An intrepid bunch of SBOC runners headed south to Plymouth to compete in the 2017 Compass Sport small clubs cup finals.
With team captain Gill Lock selcting the team with early starts, Swansea managed to rack up an impressive lead with great runs from Ben Mitchell, Katie Reynolds, Oscar Healy and William Reynolds.
The team managed to hold onto this first place till a few minutes ffrom the end when the 2016 champions from Scotland, Interlopers with several GB and Russian internationals grabbed the lead.
The pain was made worse when a few minutes later the team from Wimborne pipped us by 9 points right at the end.
Still it was a great perfomance and first top 3 placing for many years.
Thanks very much to all that took part and to Gill for the impressive coordination.
