SAMUEL Cheverton, of Waveney Valley AC, made the most of home advantage to win the junior race at the second Suffolk Winter League meeting of the season, staged at Fritton Lake near Beccles.

Cheverton finished 26 seconds clear of runner-up Andy Constable, who had triumphed at the previous race in Framlingham.

Last Sunday's event was over a new course designed by hosts Waveney Valley AC.

Asa Burnett, of Stowmarket Striders, was third overall and first in the under-15 category, while Andrew Revell, of the Harriers, topped the under-13 age group.

Megan Burt completed a double victory for Waveney Valley AC by winning the girls' race, ahead of club-mate Alice Wicks and Harriers' Emma Burroughs (first under-15). Harriers' club-mate Claire Caiger won the under-13 section.
