Scottish U13, U15 and U20 Championships

The Scottish U13, U15 and U20 Championships were held in Aberdeen on Saturday the 28th and Sunday the 29th of August.  Despite the distance, Victoria Park athletes made the journey north and made a huge impact on the events.

Thanks to the coaches for preparing the athletes and the parents for providing the transport.  It was great to see the club so we’ll represented.
