The 3rd match of the Scottish league saw the club move into 2nd position of the league .Not bad for the new boys of Division 1!
It was a real team effort with a good mixture of youth and more mature athletes working hard to amass the points.
Excellent PB performances by Lewis Raeburn ( 3000m S/C 9.51.85) and Jamie Burns (1500m 4.02.99) and a season best of 7.30m in the LJ by David Martin being the pick of performances.
It was good to see Chris Scanlon and Angus McInroy combine in the three heavy throws to collect a large tally of points. Matthew Turner and Callum Drummond also did this with both running the 400m,800m and 4x400m.Every point was important and the age range of the team was impressive.
U/17 athletes Jack Guthrie (2nd 100m 11.29) and Miraji Ahmed (1st TJ 14.08) on one side of the age range with Carson Graham ( M40) and Brian Scally (M50) at the other side. With plenty in the middle.-21 athletes competing over the afternoon.
Full results Its also important to recognise the efforts our officials put in for the team giving up their Sunday. A big thanks to David Wallace ,Kevin Slaven and Elaine Mackay for all their hard work.
