A recent picture of our  travelling team of athletes

Sara Lang Reports

“We are all looking forward to the forthcoming club trip for our athletes to Sweden to compete at the Annual European Youth Games. It takes place from 30th June to 2nd of July .

Our competing team are aged between 12-19 and will compete in a variety of events from sprints to jumps to throws to distance.

Each athlete will compete in 2 events over the 3 day competition allowing time for a little sightseeing,.

This is the first time the Junior Section have travelled overseas  as a team ( excluding parts of the UK) and hopefully not the last.


We are proudly sponsored by Creature Comforts , Run 4 it, Tunnocks, MJs Brassiere and Migo sports and extend thanks to all of them for supporting this initiative and  mush appreciated additions to our fundraising efforts   ”
