scottishathletics President Leslie Roy presented the AT Mays Trophy to Cambuslang Harriers this week.
It was a special moment for the Glasgow-based club at a training night at the Cambuslang Rugby and Sports Club.
This award is an annual accolade to the best male club across the five different age groups at the Lindsays National XC at Falkirk in February.
Cambuslang club president David Cooney accepted the award from Leslie on behalf of the club and duly thanked all club athletes, coaches, officials, parents and supporters who played such an important part in Cambuslang’s success.
‘It really is a team effort for an award like this because it is right across the age groups – from U13s right up to Seniors and Masters,’ said David.
‘Cambuslang as a club are certainly no strangers to this national award because the record books show we’ve won it on 23 out of a possible 31 occasions since it was first presented.
‘I think that bears testimony to the efforts of members past and present and the strong emphasis we put on cross country running and the Lindsays National XC event each year.’
Cambuslang took the silver medals in the Senior Men’s race at Falkirk as they edged out Inverclyde AC behind winners Central AC.
David Cooney was short-listed for the scottishathletics Volunteer of the Year award at our FPSG Awards Dinner in November 2018 after many years of dedicated service to the club and the sport.
