Scottish Athletics Mens League (Division 1)

Ayrshire Athletics Arena, Kilmarnock

20th April 2013

 

“Have a go” was very much the mantra of the Falkirk Victoria Harriers in last weekend’s league fixtures at Kilmarnock’s Ayrshire Athletics Arena. The competitors have been commended on the tremendous spirit shown, with some athletes competing in multiple events.

Everyone put in good performances, with highlights coming from the likes of Grant Penderleith who secured double wins in the 100m and 200m sprints. Penderleith also broke 50 seconds on the last leg of the 4x400m; all impressive given the windy conditions on the day. Newcomer Ryan Beattie also did extremely well in his first track race, leading for part of the race before finishing 4th in a high quality field. Further experience will see him improve on his time of 15mins 50 secs. Kenny Robertson and Ken Moncrieff represented the club in the field events, taking on 9 between them. Good performances from the pair ensured that FVH picked up well-earned league points.

Some men found themselves in unexpected events, with Penderleith also competing in the ‘B string’ long jump, while Dale Colley appeared in the steeplechase. Kieran Fergusson found himself in 5 events – a valiant effort from a young man. This excellent display of team spirit was instrumental in the Vics sealing third place.
