Mar 7, 2011 [Noel Guiden] Clonliffe’s Sergiu Ciobanu added the Ballycotton 10 to his long list of titles when he won the prestigious event in the county Cork village yesterday in a new PB of 49.37. This was an excellent performance by Sergiu who is coming back into good form once again and has well recovered now from the illness which affected him in the European Clubs Cross Country in Milan, Sergiu of course showed a welcome return to form at last weekend’s Nationals and his PB yesterday and winning margin of the best part of half a minute over Bantry A.C.s Alan O’Shea demonstrates that he is coming back into the right form as we approach half marathon and Spring marathon time.
