Road to Rio……… via Williamwood!
The crowds gathered last night at the Williamwood Track to witness and be part of the presentation of the Lindsays Trophy to head coach Bernie Campbell.
The trophy is awarded to the club with the most finishers at the three biggest cross country events of the winter season….namely Scottish Cross Country Relays,Scottish Short Course Championships and the Scottish Cross Country Championships.Giffnock North had topped the charts for season 2015-16 and Bernie was pleased to accept the trophy from top athlete and probable Rio bound Eilish McColgan on behalf of the club.Top photographer Bobby Gavin was there to record the event and we’re told the night will be featured in the next edition of the PB magazine.
Eilish was a super ambassador for Scottish Athletics who took time to chat and mix with the younger Giffnock athletes and answer their many questions. The whole club was represented on a great occasion for the Club
So well done us and a big thanks to Eilish, Claire McCracken, athlete and now representing Lindsays , Scottish Athletics with Chair Ian Beattie on hand . Thanks also to Peter Jardine SA and Bobby Gavin for the Photos.
