Hamilton back to help out

Have your say

Without their Commonwealth Youth Games stars, the composite Team Edinburgh set off for another long journey to England for Sunday’s National Junior League final in Derby.

Team captain Allan Hamilton (EAC), the AAA Under-20 long jump champion who suffered a serious leg injury at Bedford two months ago, might make his comeback: “We’re not looking to do too much but just play a captain’s part and help the team,” said his coach John Scott.

Lasswade athletes have served the cause well with 400 metres specialist Greg Louden set to complete a fine four-year stint in which he has missed only one match.
