After losing narrowly to Walton Chasers last year, NOC decisivly won the Peter Palmer Junior Relay at a drenched Ashton Court, Bristol. The team led the whole way, with a final margin of over ten minutes.
Electronic punching was in use and this later showed that the second and third place finishers (WCH and SLOW) had mispunched and were therefore disqualified. After some delay, NOC were given the Cup, so they could get home, leaving the organisers to resolve the other placings.
The team was Richard Robinson, Stephen Wright, Christopher Hodkinson, Helen Palmer, Colin Olivant, David Hodkinson, Emily Talbot and Alistair Footitt.
Both junior night competitions have been won by NOC this year, adding this trophy to the Harvester Junior that they have held for the last two years.
