Medal magic for young and old(er) at Club Relays and Masters

Monday 13th February 2023

Medal moment for our U17 Men with winners Central AC joined by Law and District AC and Livingston AC

Club Relay Results

Relays always generate a great atmosphere inside the Emirates and there was high excitement for the 4J National Club Relays finals in three younger age groups.

The U13 were in action first as the morning session draw towards a close.

Taking gold for the boys were Springburn Harriers with an excellent team effort as Pitreavie followed them home for silvers and Giffnock North took the bronzes.

In the U13 Girls final, Edinburgh AC were to top the podium with Dunfermline in second and Kilmarnock Harriers in third.

The U17 Men’s final was one of the closest finishes of the day. Central AC’s anchor runner held off Law and District with Livingston in third to give the podium an ‘all-yellow’ feel.

In the U17 Women’s race, the final changeover was arguably pivotal with Dunfermline coming through to take advantage as Law and District had to settle for silver. In third place were North Ayrshire AC.

Thank you to all the clubs who competed in our track Relays over recent weeks and well done to coaches and team managers for your assistance.


Masters Results

The 4J Masters Champs always draws highly committed athletes across five year age bands from 35.

Set against the Masters standards out-lined by ourselves, there were a number of performances which were outstanding – Central AC’s Ian Horsburgh in the 200m and Stephen Allen of Cumbernauld AAC in the 800m and 1500m would feature on that particular list.

Those track events also featured Clydesdale Harriers duo Bobby Young and Pete Cartwright adding to their significant medal tallies down the years.

Bobby, 79, has ‘around 80’ and would ‘like to get it to 100’ after only taking up the sport seriously in his late 30s.

Gillian Cooke would be a solid bet to challenge that kind of total one day and it was good to see the familiar figures of Gillian, Ann Davidson and Ron Todd among those competing in the field events.

Many congratulations to all the Masters athletes taking part with a huge commitment to training required to compete indoor track and field.

Big thank you, as ever, to our hard-worked team of scottishathletics Officials for their continued efforts in making the 4J Studios Indoor Season happen.
