LAW and District Amateur Athletics Club held their annual Club Championships at Wishaw Sport Centre on Saturday where they were presented with the Scottish Athletics Clubmark Award by Allison Simpson, Regional Development Officer for West Coast and Tommy Boyle, former Great Britain international coach.
The award is presented to clubs in recognition of them having achieved national standards of practice, providing a safe and effective structure for members who are committed to growing and improving their athletics club.
Meanwhile, several young Law members had several of their young athletes in the West Coast Team at the recent Inter-Regional Championships at Wishaw Sports Centre earlier this month.
