Men's League - Match 4

MEN'S LEAGUE - RELAY GOOD END TO SEASON AT GRANGEMOUTH, 13 AUGUST 2017

The club had its best result of the season in the final match, finishing 2nd in Division 1 on the day and climbing up to 3rd overall for the season on 21 points, behind all-conquering Aberdeen (32) and Central (26). This replicates our position of 2016.

Perhaps the most satisfying performance of the day came in the second last event, 4x100 relay, where our team of Calum Innes, Cian O'Donnell, Jax Thoirs and Kade Thomas blitzed to victory in a superb 42.66s, one of our best ever times and over a second faster than Aberdeen in 2nd. Our sprinting strength was emphasised by the fact that we had to make two late substitutions to cover injuries.

We posted maximum points in the 100m with Kade Thomas taking fine scalps in winning in 10.87 (+2.3) and brother Alec the B race in 10.98 (+1.8). Alec limped home in the A 200m after cramping close to the line, but Kade breezed to victory in the B with a PB of 21.94 (+1.1).

Our other maximum points event was 110m Hurdles, where Calum Innes showed his mastery in a close finish with 15.15 (+1.8) and Gordon Belch secured a B win with 18.28.

Sam Adams soared to victory in the Pole Vault with 4.40m, but Jax Thoirs was understandably apologetic after his failure to clear an opening height which would have bettered his existing league record. He atoned for this with his storming leg 3 in the relay. Sam then surprised us with a PB of 12.50m (+1.0) in winning the B Triple Jump.

Another PB came in the Javelin, Alex Lewis coming 2nd with 51.04m,delighted with his first time over 50m. Well done at last! Also impressive in the throws was Gerry Farrell, his 35.07m in taking 3rd in the Discus being his best for 2 years.

We welcomed two League debutants. Jack McComb was just denied a win in the 400m Hurdles, ceding victory on the run in but posting a decent 56.74s. Charlie Milarvie's hard training was rewarded in his first 800m of the season, a huge PB of 2:00.43 for 3rd B. In the same event Christopher Boyle continued his improvement in his late-started season with 1:57.24 for 4th A. 

Steven Bryce ran 4:14 for the third time this year, showing amazing consistency. He was just 0.12sec outside his PB with 4:14.93 for 6th A.

Other results not mentioned in above text:

400m 7A Jack McComb 52.06, 3B Iain Wilson 52.22 Long Jump 5A Corry O'Hara 6.35m (+2.0), 1B David Wilson 6.02m (+0.8) Triple Jump 4A David Wilson 13.02 (+2.2) High Jump 2A Marcus Morton 1.90m, 4B Alex Lewis 1.65m Shot 5A Gordon Belch 9.95m, 4B Cian O'Donnell 9.21m Discus 2B Gordon Belch 30.60m Hammer 6A Gerry Farrell 31.39m Javelin 2B Cian O'Donnell 37.60m 4x400m 5th (David Wilson, Christopher Boyle, Cian O'Donnell, Jack McComb) 3:28.66 Guest 100m 1R2 Steven Beattie 11.49s (+1.1),  1R3 Cian O'Donnell 11.44s (+1.8)

Sixteen scoring athletes took part, our strongest showing this season, highest scorers being Kade Thomas and Gordon Belch, both on 32 points. All those who competed have reason to be pleased with the result.

Field officials Sheila (referee) and Hugh Baillie did a great job keeping the programme running to the highest of standards. We congratulate Scotstoun-based high jumper Lewis McGuire (PitreavieAC) who set a new Division 1 record with 2.14m. The Division 2 record still stands to our own Ray Bobrowniki with his magnificent 2.28m set at Grangemouth in 2014.
