Josh Dickinson is South Yorkshire’s best medal prospect at the English Schools Cross Country Championships at Norwich today.
Dickinson was second in last year’s junior race, for North Yorkshire. Since then he’s moved to Doncaster where he goes to Hill House School. Last weekend he won the Inter Counties title at U15. In the schools championship he moves to the intermediate section where competition will be fierce.
