A small ragtag band of brave young men set off on an epic quests traversing mountains and rivers, through valleys and glens, negogiating many other obstacles along the way on the road to...Swansea. Ok it wasn't exactly as dramatic as Tolkien's tales of middle earth (though I'm sure I saw a few Ork-like creatures at breakfast in Birmingham) and the closest we got to bloodshed may have been when I was wielding the hammer but the journey was truly Mordor - sorry, that was a terrible pun but I couldn't resist. Nevertheless, the 14-man team put in an exceptional effort to cover all but 2 of the event slots and finish 6th at Match 2 of this year's Division I BAL Match. This result lifts Glasgow City off the bottom of the league table and back into a competitive position.
On Friday 2nd June, we returned to Scotstoun Stadium for our second GAA Miler Meet of the outdoor season; this time running events over 800m and 3000m (including the scottishathletics U17/U20 3000m National Championships). The increased spectators and beautiful weather provided a great atmosphere for the evening, which was reflected with great races.
The GAA would like to thank athletes, coaches and clubs in supporting the GAA Miler Meet in 2017. This has been a record entry for the 800m/3000m meet and we are looking forward to a cracking series of tightly contested races on the night.
Team Glasgow started off their YDL season in brilliant style this past weekend, competing in the newly formed league in Sheffield.
Led by our four team captains; Andrew Costello and Emma Thompson for the Under 20 team along with Jamie Burns and Shona Crossan for the Under 17 team, Team Glasgow performed superbly for so early in the season.
