Merseyside Cross Country Secretary Mike Dooling, MBE
Note of Selection for Merseyside XC team:
Automatic selection to the CAU Inter Counties is granted to the first six Senior Men and the first four finishers in all other age groups at the County Cross Country Championships. The Senior Men’s Inter Counties team comprises 9 runners and there are 8 in all other age groups. The remaining 3 Senior Men places, the remaining 4 places in other age groups and all reserves will be determined by team managers looking first of all at current form from the Northern Athletics Cross Country Champs and then at performances in other recent but usually shorter cross country races. Any remaining places will be offered to Merseyside clubs. It is often difficult to compare young runners on a head to head basis and selectors will need to use a measure of judgement as well as objective finish positions.
