A LARGE contingent of local athletes are set to get down on their marks for this afternoon’s Selkirk Games, writes John Slorance.

Staged at Philiphaugh, the meeting comprises a full card of events for seniors, youths and juniors.

Poised to compete in the 110m handicap are Hawick’s Dylan Ali (4m), David Lauder (11.5m), Leigh Marshall (3m) and David Rae (5.5m)

The foursome all reached the final of the Hawick Border Games 110m handicap at the weekend.

And on this form they have a good chance of gaining glory today.

Also liable to impress for Hawick are teenage duo James Parker (4.5m) and Ryan Elliot (6.5m). Parker won his heat in the Hawick sprint, but had to pull out of his semi-final because of an injury.

Having his first season as a senior, Elliot tasted victory at the Hawick meeting when coming out on top in the under-17 100m championship.

Other Hawick runners in the Selkirk sprint are David Hush (20.5m), Mark Young (10m), Jack Wilson (13.5m), Megan Shiel (19m), Corey Wilson (9.5m), Leon Ali (7m), David Grieve (14m) and Drew Bryson (19.5m).

So far this season Hawick has not produced a winner in a distance race.

Rory Anderson (50m), Reece Taylor (50m), Mark Young (65m), Kyle Potts (85m), Derek Scott (95m) and James McHugh (105m), will all be bidding to change this in the 800m handicap.

There is a multitude of Hawick youngsters competing for glory in the junior and youth events, and the junior 90m handicap features Jack Chelley (9m), Connor Sutherland (13m), Amy Campbell (8.5m), Tom Fowler (7m), Brodie Graham (2.5m), Finnen Gordon-Wooley (8.5m), Ronan Mckean (3.5m), Cian Riddell (10.5m), Eilidh Murray (18.5m) and Fraser Clyne (11m).

Going in the youths’ 200m handicap are Nicole Campbell (33m), Barrie McLean (31m), Andrew Palmer (20m), Darcy Graham (6m), Matthew Mallin (7m), Matthew Bell (28m), Kyle Brunton (18m), Joseph Chipakupaku (10m), Calum Renwick (32m), Logan Gordon-Wooley (15m), Lewis Elliot (26m) and Daniel Elliot (12m).

Selkirk Games. 200 metres Youths Open. Daniel Elliot (Hawick)

Teenager Elliot shines brightly amid the wind and rain at Selkirk

TEENAGER Daniel Elliot shone in the sunshine when he won the youths 90 metres handicap at Hawick Border Games.

And a week later, in the wind and rain of Selkirk Common-Riding, he shone again as he turned the heat on a cold afternoon by triumphing in the youths 200m handicap.

Running from a mark of 12m, Elliot looked the part as he stormed home to a fine win in his heat in 24.14 seconds.

And his Billy-Edgar stable companion Logan Gordon-Wooley (15m) took second spot.

Come the final, Elliot produced an explosive piece of running on the rain-drenched Philiphaugh track to break the tape in 25.57 seconds ahead of Cameron Fisher of Jed AC (32m) and Ryan Houten of Cardrona (6m).

The 14-year-old told the Hawick News: “It’s good to have won again and I hope I can keep this up.”

Fraser Clyne came within a whisker of putting victory Hawick’s way in the junior 200m handicap.

Eleven-year-old Clyne booked himself a place in the final with an impressive heat win in 28.31 seconds, from his 20m mark.

Also appearing in the final was Hawick youngster Tom Fowler (14m), who had recorded a winning time of 27.87 seconds in his heat.

An exciting final appeared to be on the cards and that’s exactly the way it turned out.

In a blanket ending the judges had to consult the photo finish camera to select a winner.

After a long delay, the result went the way of Angus Bryde (14m) of the Tweed Leader Jed Track club (TLJT).

Clyne emerged the closest of seconds and Fowler third. The watch recorded a time of 25.57 seconds.

Clyne said: “It was very close in the final and I didn’t know who had won.

“That’s the third 200m final I’ve been in, I’d now just like to win one.”

Hawick sprinters Leigh Marshall (3m), David Lauder (11.5m) and David Rae (5.5m) all triumphed in their heats in the 110m handicap.

Marshall and Lauder then went on to win their cross ties to qualify for the spring final, which had a winning purse of £1,000.

Representing TLJT, it was Gala’s Angus Stanners (7m) who emerged victorious in a fast time of 11.44 seconds.

Marshall took third place, coming in behind Selkirk’s Geoff Keen (11.5m).

In the 200m handicap, David Grieve (34m) and David Rae (19m) both won their heats.

Victory in a closely fought final went the way of Jack Beattie of Rosyth (34m) who edged out Grieve and Rae on the line in 21.37 seconds.

Brodie Graham (2.5m) and Ronan McKean (3.5m) reached the final of the junior 90m handicap, but it was Selkirk’s Callum Anderson (6m) who won in the final.

In the youths 90m handicap, Logan Gordon Wooley (7.5m) emerged a heat winner. But Eoin Lowther of TLJT (6m) gained victory in the final.
