Alain Kyd commented  ...

"It was great to see so much success and the yr7 especially in their first championships.   Kirsty Beynon going home with bragging rights in the Beynon household yet again! 

Birkenhead also did very well and benefitted from the recent MDOC events for which they are very grateful. It is great to see them at British schools."

Yr13 Boys team - Silver

Simon Fletcher commented ...

"I would like to mirror Alain's comments that it was great to see schools from the North West travelling down to this National competition, and that is only possible because students are able to gain practice and experience on a range of terrain at local club events.

It was great for my Year 7 boys to come away with a medal at their first championship, but this was only possible because of the event at Chorlton Water park and a crash course in navigation using the excellent "Getting going" videos and courses set out at Wythenshawe Park and Maprun course at Reddish Vale which we were able to use in the weekends leading up.

A big thank you to the MDOC members who produced the training videos and I thought I should feed back that they were invaluable to our success this weekend."
