Final points table for the Forest Sprint series is here. Well done to all who took part and especially to Matthew Gooch for taking the top spot.

Further afield, the Gooch family scooped an orienteering hat trick with Matthew Gooch winning his age class at the recent Portugal O Meet, whilst Joel and Dan both took 2nd place in theirs.
