Forth Valley League- Presidents Select @ Meadowbank Stadium Saturday 3rd September 2015

There were plenty of medal performances plus numerous pbs and a special mention to Lucy Davison who broke a long standing league record at this match. However it is a whole team effort and all the Central athletes were chosen independently by the Forth Valley League to compete. This is a great accomplishment in its own right. Finally thank you to all the parents who came on the day as without you your kids couldn’t compete.
