Beagles star Jake Waldron was the star of the show for the club at the latest Met League cross-country league race on Saturday.

The salubrious surroundings of Wormwood Scrubs was the venue for the fourth of the five races in this season’s competition.

But Newham were hit by injuries and unavailablity, particular among the women, where they could only field two runners on the day.

Star runner Revee Walcott-Nolan had been in the top three in the first two races, but she has not run in the last two, leaving the Beagles ladies at the bare bones.

For the men, Waldron put in a fine run in muddy conditions to finish 15th in 27mins 11secs.

Next home for the Beagles was Nick Armstrong who was 62nd in 29.09, while Wayne Bell battled home in 30.12 to be 115th.

Andrew Feeney-Seale was next home in 148th, clocking 31.01, with Jad El-Houssami not far behind as he came 158th in 31.18.

Yonis Mohamed was just 20 seconds behind him as he crossed the line in 172nd, while Alex Morales was 248th in 33.11.

To round off the runners, Francois Turpault clocked 35.35 to be back in 353rd, while V40 runner Andrew Gwilliam finished in 41.06 to be 505th out of the 544 finishers.

The men are now seventh in the Met League table.

Back to the ladies and their dynamic duo was led off by Natalie Traylen. The V40 runner came home in one second over 35 minutes to be 217th on the day.

And she was tracked again by Shelley Jameson who managed 38.41 to be 251st.

The fifth and final race of the Met League season will be at Trent Park in Enfield on February 10 where the team will hope for a better turnout.
