Angela with the Baton
For many years Giffnock North has had a close association with a Veteran Athlete, Angela Kelly and her coach John Birkett from Carlisle. This has included several other athletes from their club running 2nd claim for Giffnock both over the years and as recently as this year . Both Billy Glasgow and Dudley Walker have fostered this connection which has been of mutual benefit .
