Another absolutely superb performance from Erin to take both the Under 17 Scottish title and the Scottish Indoor 3000 metre record  ! A record which dates from 2005 ! Erin’s time at 9.36 .07 takes about 13 seconds off that record. [We realise that we are awaiting official ratification but hopefully there will be no  problem with that]

 Congratulations to Erin , her family , Dudley , her coach , his coaching team and her training squad too! She never faltered once as she maintained a solid pace over the 15 laps following the pacemaker for 13 laps and then bringing her fantastic effort to this conclusion !  Much appreciated congratulations were also sent to Erin from Siobhan Coleman the previous Record holder. 

This feat took place today at the GAA/ BMC Miler Meet at the Emirates where a whole clutch of Giffnock athletes had a brief change from the mud to  indoors to gain PBs at 3000m.

Some other great performances on show and the smile on Heather Barnes’ face probably says it all.
