TEAM GLASGOW NEW SEASON 2018
Team Glasgow started the Season with the first match in the Premier 1 Division of the YDL in Carlisle on the 29th April. The competing Clubs in the division this year are:-
Team Forth Valley and
We were successful in gaining first place by one and a half points over team Edinburgh, so a great start to our new season. We now travel to Liverpool for our second match on Saturday 26th for the match on Sunday 27th May.
A small but somehow still eclectic mix of personalities made the journey to Nuneaton for the 2nd match of the division 2 BAL season on 2nd June (all the 2’s… spooky). From the strong silent types to the ‘please gonnae shut up before this migraine gets any worse’ sort; and from the young up-and-comers to the, eh… more experienced athletes who have been doing this for just a bit too long, all had a common goal: to make amends for the slow start in the last round. Alas, much like many a Scottish sports team, it was to end in glorious failure. Despite a great effort (please see the GCAC Facebook page for a slightly more gushing description and an example of the problems of late night posting), we finished 6th in the match won by our new best friends, Bournemouth A.C.
Thank you to all the athletes and clubs in supporting our events, we have received a great response in entries!
