Scottish Athletics Mens League (Division 2)

Grangemouth 14 August 2011

 

Falkirk Victoria Harriers Celebrate Promotion

Falkirk Victoria’s male athletes have rounded off a successful season in track and field, by finishing as runners up in the Men’s League. The league consists of four separate meetings starting in April and culminating in August at Grangemouth Stadium. The league is divided into division one and two. With the Vic’s having been languishing in the latter for over ten years.

This year the Vic’s had some determined young athletes coming through into the seniors. This along with a strategy of covering most if not all events was key to their success. Not forgetting the established athletes and older heads who equally played their part in gaining maximum points in each event.

Falkirk managed to be in either first or second position throughout the competition. In the end it was between themselves and Shettleston Harriers on the final day at Grangemouth, to determine who went home with the trophy. Shettleston put out a strong team and despite some fine performances from the Vic’s. Shettleston ultimately triumphed over the Vic’s and walked away with the division two trophy.

However finishing second to a great team like Shettleston is a great achievement and really shows what a fantastic result this is for the Vic’s. The Vic’s will now take their place in division one next year along with Shettleston.
