Despite having been
woken by the hotel fire alarm twice on Saturday night,
our Women’s UK league excelled themselves on Sunday by
finishing second in the match and raising our overall
position to third. One of the highlights was
Rachel’s PB in the Hammer but everyone will remember
it as the
Chloe beat Jenny Meadows in the 200m
Our Sprint Squad were superb with Chloe and
Caroline getting us second place in the A and B string
100m and then both going one place better by winning
their 200m races with Chloe beating the home club’s
Jenny Meadows. In the A string 400m, Erin also
lined up against Jenny Meadows and not only finished a
close second, was closing her down in the last 50m.
Sarah had a very strong run to win the B string.
Jane was our only representative in the hurdles and
had a good run to finish seventh.
Because of call-offs and injury, our jumps squad
was a bit depleted but we still managed good points
with Jane and Elayne second and fifth in the Long
Jump, Elayne and Jen sixth and fourth in the Triple
Jump, Jane and Kirsty sixth and third in the High Jump
and Jen second in the Pole Vault.
We weren’t able to cover all middle distance events
but did score very good points with Asiling and Rhian
first and second in the 800m and two second places
courtesy of Hollie and Rhian in the 1500m.
Aisling volunteered to do her warm down in the 3000m
(in her trainers) and was a respectable fifth – thanks

Stacey and Claire were third and first in the Discus
with Aileen and Elayne second and third in the
With so many good sprinters no-one could
touch us in the 4x100 relay where we led the whole
way. The Wigan challenge never materialised in
the 4x400. Aisling led us off coming home just
behind the City of Portsmouth runner. Sarah brought us
up to first place and handed over to Hollie.
City of Portsmouth just had the edge when Erin took
over but she stormed round and brought the team home
with a comfortable three second lead over Portsmouth.
It was a great day with some exceptional

Alan Sisson Dunbar
Born: February 26, 1934; Died: July 1, 2011.
Alan Dunbar, who has died aged 77 after a long
illness, was a former athlete and drama lecturer who
went on to become a successful journalist and
He was a man of many parts and sometimes conflicting
roles. Luminaries from all realms of his life were
present at his self-planned funeral at an Edinburgh
hotel, the first ever held there, and heard tributes
from family, to whom he was devoted, and former
Winner of the Scottish 100 yards title in 1955 and
1956 after earning his full blue at Glasgow University
in 1954, Mr Dunbar had an unorthodox “flappy” arm
action which was certainly eye-catching but for
whatever reason, possibly his bad luck with muscle
injuries, he was still overlooked for the 1956
Melbourne Olympic Games by the British selectors.
Mr Dunbar even defied the head of drama at the Royal
Scottish Academy of Music and Drama to run in the
Scottish Championships in 1955 when the college
graduation clashed with the event.
Originally from Stranraer, where he won the Scottish
junior 100 yards titles in 1951 and 1952, the year he
also captured the AAA junior crown, Mr Dunbar went on
to represent Scotland in the 1958 Empire Games in
Cardiff, winning his first round heat before going out
in the second round.
A member for many years of the legendary sprint team
of Glasgow club Victoria Park AC, who monopolised the
Scottish 4x100 metres relay championship throughout
the 1950s, he amassed trophies galore. Yet he was
certainly not someone who let his running do the
In 1957 he withdrew from the final of the national 220
yards at New Meadowbank in Edinburgh (the forerunner
of the 1970 Commonwealth Games stadium) in protest at
the condition of the then cinder track and he later
organised an unsuccessful petition, backed by abound
50 athletes, against further use of the venue for

Petrel of the Track”.
transition to broadcaster and sportswriter was a
natural one when he hung up his spikes in 1961 and
became the voice of athletics on Radio Clyde and the
scourge of the Scottish selectors as a fearless and
regular contributor to the Evening Citizen and The
Mr Dunbar was one of a loyal and dwindling band of
reporters who covered the sport week in, week out, no
matter the weather and even when illness severely
hampered his mobility.
In tandem with his media work, he also continued his
career in drama, lecturing at Langside College in
Glasgow from 1956 to 1963 and, until 1971, at the
city’s Central College of Commerce.
Moving to Edinburgh he changed to communication at the
then Napier College and eight years later became a
much esteemed senior lecturer in communication at
Queen Margaret College, a post he held for the next 10
A period of illness persuaded him to retire but he
soon began branching out, accepting an invitation to
become a guest director at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
For the next 20 years he was a permanent member
of staff of Edinburgh Acting School, directing many
shows with, according to principal Anna Finline,
“great enthusiasm, expertise and intellect”.
It was typical of the man that he directed his final

4 June 2011 Copthall
Senior team travelled to Copthall for the first of the
three UKWAL matches. Because of work
commitments, exams etc, it was a much quieter than
usual bus which left Glasgow on Friday morning.
The rest of the team were flying down from Glasgow and
Edinburgh either later that day or early on Saturday
morning. Fortunately there were no ash clouds
and the Easyjet flights all left and landed on time.
Everyone, except Jen who flew down early Saturday
morning, was there for the team meeting later that
night where we welcomed our new Higher Claim athletes
– Caroline George, Rachel Hunter and Aileen Rennie
from Ayr Seaforth. Michelle Durbidge from Montrose,
and a Secondary Higher Claim athlete, Fiona Gentles,
from Springburn Harriers. We had four late call
offs in the three days before the match so there was a
bit of negotiation at the meeting.
By the time
got to the Stadium it was a beautiful sunny day but
quite windy. The stadium is just next to the
motorway junction but coaches have to go round the
block through some narrow streets so it took an extra
10mins or so to reach the stadium entrance. We
made it in plenty of time to get the declarations in
but before the numbers arrived.
With it being a joint BAL/UKWAL match there was a
lot going on and a really good atmosphere during the
day. Our sprinters, Caroline, Rachel W, and Erin
scored good individual points. Caroline’s second
place in the A 100m was particularly impressive .
An athlete was disqualified and refused to leave the
track. It took ten minutes to sort out the
problem but Caroline showed great maturity and didn’t
let it affect her race. Jen stepped in to
cover the B 100m but we were without a B 400m runner.
Kerry ran two solid races in the 100mH and 400mH
with Fiona warming up for her Steeplechase in the B
Erin and Rhian covered the 800m and 1500m and were
well placed in both events and Fiona was a solid third
in the Steeplechase. Unfortunately we didn’t
have cover for the 3000m.
We were lacking a bit in
the jumps though Jen, as usual, got maximum points in
the Pole Vault. She covered A String Long Jump ,
Kerry covered A string Triple Jump and Rachel W
got us good points in the High Jump.
Our throwers were nothing short of magnificent
contributing 64 points. Rachel H and Stacey were
first and second in the Hammer as were Michelle and
Stacey in the Discus. Aileen and Paula were
fourth and first in the Javelin with Michelle and
Rachel H scoring full points in the Shot while a few
feet away, in the men’s High Jump, the Belgrave
athlete not only broke the division record he broke
the St Lucia national record. Despite all this
activity close by, they didn’t allow it to interfere
with their performance.
Despite being short of sprinters, with our middle
distance runners and a thrower contributing, we
managed sixth place in both relays. In the end we
finished fifth overall but were only ten points behind
third place Havering Mayersbrook. An excellent result
for such a small team. Full
results are at this link.
Despite only doing two events, Stacey again won the
Points Princess just ahead of Erin and Rachel H.
Rhian won the athlete of the match for a brilliant
800m where she managed to run down two athletes in the
last 20 metres to finish second.
Saturday was a great team effort and definitely
one of the best matches I have ever been at.
With the distance and being a Saturday it was always
going to be difficult. Last year TVH were fifth
in the second match and recovered sufficiently to get
promoted to Division one so with a good turnout at
Wigan and Grangemouth we can still do it.
Thanks to everyone and especially those who covered
extra events. Thanks also to Donald Wilson for getting
us such a good deal at the hotel in Luton.
Everyone was impressed.
