1977 John Bicourt leads in the Steeplechase, GB & NI v Sweden at Crystal Palace

Our archives record this as 1977, GB v Sweden at Crystal Palace. John Bicourt leads from ex-Olympic Champion Anders Garderud (Sweden) with 300 metres to go. Former Commonwealth silver medallist John Davies is in 3rd. However, we have yet to trace the results of this match. GB did take on Sweden in Stockholm in '77, but John Bicourt wasn't in that team. Can anyone shed any further light on this. John, a double Olympian, set a Club Record of 8:22.82 in Sweden in 1976 which still stands.
