The Combined League Events have been a great addition to the current Track Season competition. Fifteen athletes took the opportunity to contest a number of events on a warm day at Grangemouth on Sunday.

Michael Conteh running the 100m Hurdles for the first time recorded a very respectable time of 16.87 +3.4.
