A Berwick athlete has her sights set on a place in the England team for the Masters Cross Country Championships in Dublin next month.

Sue Weatherburn, 61, is trained by Henry Gray, who also coaches Guy Learmonth and Cameron Tindle.

She has been named as travelling reserve for the event, which is to be held at Santry on November 14.

Sue is the wife of former Great Britain athlete Ray Weatherburn, who ran competitively in the 1970s and early 80s alongside runners like David Bedford.

The couple only recently returned to live in Berwick.
