The Gloucester youngster displaying an appetite for racing matching the hunger Paula Radcliffe showed at her age, lost the gold medal by just two seconds to Ancuta Bobocel at the Netherlands venue.Probably any other 16-year-old would have been delighted to have scooped a silver medal on her debut at this level of competition.But Pidgeon forbidden from taking part in last year race because underaged, pulled no strings today she could have won the 4830 metres race.”It was fun, but Im a bit annoyed because I let the winner get away,” said Pidgeon after a powerful display so mindful of Radcliffe in her junior career when she won the World Cross title. “I wish there had been another 100 metres because then I think would have got her,” insisted Pidgeon, winner of the European junior 5000m crown in the summer.

Pidgeon surely if she maintains her progress likely to be seen wearing a Team GB vest at the 2012 London Olympic Games, is not yet thinking that far ahead.But her eyes are already focused on beating the Romanian winner who will also be eligible for one last time when Milan hosts next years Championships.”The best is to come,” forecast Pidgeon also the UKs 3000 metres steeplechase record holder. “Im aged 16 and came second. “I am already looking forward to a rematch next year,” where she believes not only herself but also most of her fellow Brits who she led to the team title, will also be eligible to defend their title.Morag MacLarty finished sixth, a place ahead of Stephanie Twell with Sian Edwards the other counter taking 15th position as they deprived Romania of a second successive victory. “All apart from Morag have got another year at least,” said the prodigious talent, who is convinced domestic rivalry has modelled the squad into world beaters.”I think our age group is one of the toughest in all of Britain because we are all racing against each other so often,” was her belief after the Norwich Union squad won the gold medal for the third time in four years.The junior men ably led by Andy Vernon, also showed their spurs over a flat 6500 metres course finishing eight points behind the winners Poland but three points ahead of Romania.
