Jenny Maddocks was the second female finisher and alongside Nicky Laitner and Fleur Harvey, that was enough to win the women’s county team standings ahead of team-mates Shanti Johnson, Laura Astley and Christine Pout in second.

Mark Kennedy, Nigel Aston, Errol Maginley and John Cooper also grabbed second in the men’s team competition.
