CSSAL 17 May 2015 . Message from Team Manager, David Hand

Central & South of Scotland League Match
Congratulations and a big well done to all those athletes who represented Lasswade A.C. so well at the above match last Sunday, 17th May at East Kilbride.

The weather may have seemed dismal but the team spirit was high and the athletes all rose to the occasion. Thirty-eight of you competed and EVERYONE OF YOU scored invaluable points. ( At the moment we seem to have finished third to Falkirk and Shettleston but this has still to be confirmed.)

Their were lots of fine performances and personal bests but we needed every single point to get the result Although we would generally not single out athletes perhaps a mention of two who personified the spirit of ‘lets get out and score points and be successful’ were club development officer Brian Hood who came out of track retirement to cover the ‘masters events’ and our Danish athlete Sam Talebi who was thrown into his first track/field meeting to cover senior men’s events. Both these athletes handled the challenge whole heartedly and were an inspiration to their colleagues of all ages in the team. The second meeting of this league is on Sunday 28th June at Grangemouth (thank goodness for a stadium under cover) and we look forward to seeing most of you there — and an equally good (or even better) team performance. (See individual performances of ALL athletes posted earlier today)

Lastly a special vote of thanks to all our officials ( they score an additional 100 points for running the meeting and getting cold and wet ) and your age group managers who kept us all right. Thanks for all your efforts,

David Hand. (See you next time.)

Livingston Open Graded 22 April 2013

Livingston Open Graded

Only one adult sprinter and one u15 Lasswade AC representative at Livingston AC’s open graded last night. Whilst both ran well it left me thinking why were there not more Lasswade runners, throwers and jumpers ?

These events are fantastic opportunities for our younger athletes to be blooded in some competition. There are children of all standards so they can compete without the pressure of team competition.

Grangemouth have an open graded on 6 May and for the East Lothian a meeting on 9 May. Both are taking entries now. If we want to compete in FVL and YDL leagues these meetings are a good way to prepare them for competition. It also provides performances that allow coaches to make selections for team events.

Come on give them a try.

For last nights results



Brian Hood

Club Development officer

Grangemouth Open Graded online entry

I have received notification that the open graded meetings at Grangemouth this year are online enty only .

The following has been received and we are advised that a large entry is expected. Numbers will be capped so don’t delay or face disappointment

Please note that entry is online only. Entries via www.online-entries.co.uk , this will take you to Scottish Schools entries page. You will see FCT logo and Grangemouth Stadium’s details below.

As most of you will be aware, last year we were completely bombarded with entries on the night and unfortunately it was not a pleasant experience for coaches, athletes and stadium staff alike.

This is our first time trying it this way and I am sure it will be a vast improvement to the process.

Declarations will be in the ‘wooden gym’, for athletes to collect their numbers. This will be their number for each event on that particular evening.
Please encourage your athletes to enter as soon as possible as all event numbers are capped.
