There were lots of terrific performances, below some highlights:

U15 Girls Long Jump Nicole Proudfoot    5.30m New club record

U15 Boys 800m Murray Fotheringham   2.00.33 New club record, new Sail record

 U11 Boys 600m Craig Shennan broke the SAIL Record with 1.47  only to see it overtaken by Kilbarchan  athlete Oliver Patton . Craig has the consolation of it being a terrific Club Record 

Billy Glasgow commented –

“Giffnock athletes performed fantastically well and there was a great team spirit backed up by the support of their appreciative parents and spectators. We seemed to have performed very well in the hurdles and field events as well as our usual high standard in the sprints and distance. Obviously there were one or two standouts Craig Shennan, Adam Clayton, Joseph Connelly (who had to go home sick) Sam Young (stepped up for the relays), Calum Alexander, Alyson Bell, Nicole Proudfoot, JenniferDallas, Murray Fotheringham, Megan Busby, John Hamilton, Chris McKay, Ethan Dear and Ross Lipp who stepped up and ran the 800 & 400m.  Overall I thought it was a great competition and the atmosphere although competitive was always friendly and a great time seemed to have been had by all.”

 So, plenty of Podium Places and Medals to assuage all the mothers who had possibly missed their Mothers Day Celebrations but were rewarded with Athletes successes over a range of Relays and Events

 As Steven Nairne added :

“From all the team at GNAAC to all of the mums associated with the club, we hope you had a Happy Mothers Day.

To those who coach, volunteer, make the packed lunches, wash and iron the kit, taxi back and forward, pay entry fees to competitions and those who provide words of constant encouragement to athletes through good times and times of injury and frustration- mums we salute you”

Take a bow!
