Club has been shortlisted in two categories for the 2020 Scottish Athletics Annual Awards.This will be held virtually [in this weird and very challenging year for the whole planet]
Dudley Walker, Coach was delighted to see Giffnock North shortlisted again for Off Track Club of the Year “.The growing strengths in our Senior Women ranks and the beginning signs of an improved retention rate of young Junior Athletes U20s both Male and Female has made a significant contribution to this as well as the strength and depth within the Junior Ranks.”
The Club were also delighted to see Billy Glasgow, Sprints Coach, shortlisted in the Development Coach of the Year Category. Billy over the years has concentrated on the Sprints Development Squads in the club He has not often been able to support the individual success of talented young athletes as we have witnessed this year with his coach input to Alyson Bell. He would be very quick to point out that it is Alyson’s own talent, dedication, committment and attitude to training which earned her a place at the Senior British Champs this year in Manchester. This is in addition to her collection of Scottish Age groups records. We concur with that perspective but would also highlight the crucial support of Billy as her coach, Alyson’s family’s input and her training group who have also contributed to her success.
Congratulations to all the club members who have contributed to these shortlistings . Look out for more announcements of the results.
