Great news Gul!
When did you study in Manchester? I was at the uni there between 89 and 97 (slow reader!). Yes, the poppy installation is still there. The sculpture park is a lovely spot and was really surprisingly busy despite the mud.
That's a cracking result Lorenzo. Well done on a great time in cold conditions. Hard to know what will give you the edge next spring. Adding heat into the campaign is fraught with injury risk for some but if you can keep volume and consistency alon with more speed that's got to be a good start.
