Mason Trophy
21st June 2018

Sixteen athletes from Bromsgrove School represented the Herefordshire and Worcestershire County track and field team at The English Schools’ Inter Counties match at the Alexander Stadium, Birmingham on Saturday 16th June.

The best two athletes from the following counties were represented in their respective events: Cheshire, Derbyshire, Greater Manchester, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, Nothamptonshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and the West Midlands. This meant that representing their County team became a very different ball game.
