Further to my earlier report on the trial races for the hill running Junior Home International I am delighted to confirm that both Lucas Cheskin and Mairi Wallace have been selected to represent Scotland at the JHI in North Wales on 19 September. Lucas goes in the U20 Men's race alongside fellow Borderers Thomas Otton and Gavin Bryson as well as Ross Golan from East Sutherland AC who is Mairi's cousin! Mairi herself goes in the U17 Women's race.
Massive congratulations. Just reward for some really hard work and in Lucas's case perseverance. He'll be due Jacob a muckle knickerbocker glory from Caldwells as it was Jacob's GB selection and therefore non-availabilty for Scotland on the same day that opened the door for him.
