Edinburgh AC’s travels are not quite over for they are off south to Derby a week tomorrow for the final of the National (Under-20) Junior league.

With the girls’ team looking stronger – they hope to have seasoned seniors such as Emily Dudgeon, Kimberley Reed and Beth Finlayson in action – Edinburgh are targeting a possible top-three place.

UK Championship 800m fourth-finisher and World Junior finalist Dudgeon will move up to 1500m this time, while Scottish under-20 champion Reed will cover both hammer and discus, and Finlayson, back after injury for a promising under-20 national sprint double, will run both 100m and 200m.

Commonwealth Youth Games 200m champion Tom Holligan, whose season has been disrupted by injury, will have his final outing of the campaign.
