Senior Women In European Cup
Sale Harriers women represent Great Britain Clubs in the European Championships Clubs Cup at Berne in Switzerland on the weekend of May 30. It's not only Manchester United & Chelsea that represent British Clubs in Europe!). They won the honour by winning last summer's UK Premier T & F League, the latest of an unprecedented twenty-three Premier League championship victories in about thirty years. This will be the club's thirty-sixth championship at either senior or junior level. Our junior teams have won the European T & F Cup three times and our senior women have been runners-up in two cross-country championships and won bronze medals in one. The manager at the helm through all these successes is the club's own 'Fergie', Eric Hughes (though this lifetime Manchester City supporter won't appreciate that!). He said, "We have a strong team especially in the field and jumps events. The target is to finish in the top two and bring British clubs back into Premier 1 European competition next year. This year, the club's men's team manager, Dean Hardman, is deputising for Eric and will be supported by club coaches Chris Bartram and Neil Donbavand.
