The process to select the England team for the XC being held on Sat 12 November 2016 at Glasgow was undertaken last Saturday (1 Oct). There were eighteen EMAC members who threw their hat into the ring and whilst I don’t know the names, I am aware that there are two EMAC members that were selected and eight who have made it to the reserves list. I am told that the letters have all gone out and most people will have received theirs yesterday (4 Oct) indicating their position in the selection process.
Congratulations to the ten that have been selected or on the reserves list and also many thanks to those that stepped forward but didn’t make it.
I hope that those that get “reserves” letters are able to remain positive and stick with it, as many will have a very real prospect of ending up in the team due to changed circumstances in the intervening period. I understand that there will be an “event preview article” published in AW in early November.
