Good start for Midlothian’s young athletes

Lasswade Athletic Club made a successful start to their summer campaign in the JSB Plumbing Forth Valley League at Grangemouth Stadium on Saturday.

Competing in the league – for young athletes between nine and 15 years of age – they finished a close-up third of eight teams in the first division.

With many of the Midlothian youngsters experiencing their first taste of competitive track and field club athletics, the atmosphere was daunting, but they met the challenge well and finished in third spot from Edinburgh and Pitreavie.
