Bicester’s James Minchin helped Team Oxfordshire win their final National Junior Athletic League meeting of the season at Horspath.

Minchin finished second in the pole vault with a height of 2.60m as Oxon edged out Reading in the Brent Division round four clash.

But the combined team still finished third in the final standings of the under 20 competition behind Reading and Harrow.

Meanwhile, Alchester enjoyed some veterans success at the Hooky 6.

Samantha Usher was the third lady home and second in the vet 35 category, completing the six-mile course in 40mins 20secs.

Alchester’s Angela Banks took the vet 45 ladies’ honours in 42.26, while John Burgess was the first vet 50 man home, crossing the line in 38.57.
