10th December 2022

Emirates Arena, Glasgow

The second Scottish Athletics Indoor League (SAIL) match took place in early December with a number of the DTFC teams hoping to build on their excellent showings in the first match and put them in a position to compete in the final.


The U11s were in fine form with Finlay Gibson taking 2nd spot in his 60m in a PB of 9.62secs. There was also a 2nd place for Lewis Chalmers in the B string of the same race and Lewis followed this up with an excellent 4th place in the 600m B string. Millie Gordon was in great form on her 60m where she finished 3rd in her B string 60m in a 10.59secs PB and also added another PB this time in the 600m with a 4th place in 2.16mins. There were PBs for Kelseigh Wilson in her 60m and Brodie Huntzinger in his 600m with Alice Thomas adding vital points for her team with a 5th spot in the 600m. At the end of the match both the boys and girls U11 teams sit in 2nd place in their respective league tables , both well placed to try and finish in the top 3 to secure a final berth in the final SAIL match in January.


The U13s were also in action and their best showings came from Murron Kane who won her 200m in some style with a 29.42secs PB.Lottie Thomas continued her fine form with 4th spot and a PB of 11.08secs in the 60m hurdles, and also 4th this time in the 800m was the solid Poppy Warner. There were PBs and steady performances from Lily Pritchard with a 3.40m long jump and Caitlin Chalmers with a 1.25m high jump. The boys had only 2 representatives so they were both kept busy during the afternoon with 5 events between them. Lewis Young netted PBs in all his three disciplines with the 10.17secs in the 60m his most impressive. Sean Asamoah ran an excellent 29.49secs 200m to set a new PB and he was also 2nd in his long jump with a 4m leap. The U143 girls sit in 4th spot however as they are only 2 points off second spot a strong showing in the final match will put them in with a good chance of a final berth.


With only 2 available athletes in the U15 category for the boys and girls it was always going to be a tall order for them to qualify. Rachel Barnett scored 2 PBs in her 3 disciplines with her 3rd spot in the long jump with a leap 4.09m her best effort. Milly Mackenzie set herself a new PB with a 48.61secs PB in the 300m. For the boys Alistair Rimmer set 2 PBs with a run of 29.39secs in the 200m to finish 8th and a 6th spot in the shot Putt with his 6.35m PB. Luke Hamilton sprinted well to run 8.83secs and finish 5th in his 60m.


The U17 girls remain well placed in 2nd spot after their efforts in this match. Shayna Asamoah and Sophie Thomas had the sprints well covered with Shayna 1st in both her 60m and 200m races in times of 7.97secs and 25.81secs respectively and Sophie setting a new PB in the 300m where she finished 2nd in 42.65secs.Kirstin Penman won her 60m hurdles with a stunning PB of 9.47secs and followed this up with 5th spot in the shot Putt. Ellie Candlish was as reliable as ever in her high jump where she won the event with an excellent PB jump of 1.58m. Amy Jenkinson was also firing this time in her long jump where she set a new PB of 4.79m adding over 50cm to her previous PB and finishing an excellent 3rd. The boys had more representation this time and Callum Newton winning 2 of his 3 disciplines with PBs of 8.64 secs in the 60m hurdles and a high jump of 1.85m. Brooke Ferguson  scored an excellent 3rd in his shot putt and set a new PB of 27.59secs in his 200m . Oliver Morrison ran an excellent race to finish 3rd in his 800m but was just outside his PB in 2.07mins. The boys after such an excellent show are only 3 points from 2nd spot.


Darcie Black was the only representitive in the U20 Category  where she finished 2nd with a 27.50secs run in her 200m and won the long jump with a 5.03m leap inher long jump.


Al eyes are now focussed on the 3rd and final SAIL match in mid Janaury with the club hoping for a few of its teams to make the final.


27th November 2022

Emirates Arena, Glasgow

The first Scottish Athletics Indoor League (SAIL) fixture of 2022-23 took place at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow at the end of November with the DTFC athletes hoping to at least match the achievements of last season which saw four of the teams make the final after the three league fixtures.


For many of the U11s it was their first experience of the Emirates and although it can be a bit frightening they stepped up and produced some terrific performances all adding PBs to their performances.. Finlay Gibson ran 9.69secsto finish 3rd in the 60m A string with Brodie Huntzinger 10th in his 600m in 2.15mins- Brodie was also 4th in his standing jump. Alice Thomas had an excellent day with two third places in the A string 60m finishing in 9.84secs and the 600m in 2.07mins .The B string girls saw Kelseigh Wilson 3rd in the 60m in 10.4secs and 8th in her standing jump and Millie Gordon 7th in the 600m in 2.20minswhilst adding 4th spot in her standing jump.


The pick of the U13s saw Sean Asamoah win his long jump with a 4.11m PB and finish third in his 60m. Lewis Young netted two PBs in his 200m and high jump whilst for the girls Sophie Jenkinson finished 4th in her long jump, Lottie Thomas was 4th in her 60m and Poppy Warner ran a very impressive 2.42mins to finish 5th with a PB in her 800m. Caitlin Chalmers also had a good day with a 1.25m high jump PB where she finished 3rd and a 5.24m shot putt PB and a 4th finish.


The U15s were also logging the PBs with Lucy Gibb running a 2.53mins 800m PB, and Rachel Barnett a 5.83m shot putt PB. There were good performances from the U15 boys as well with Chris Doig the pick with an excellent 4th finish in the 300m with a 44.25secs PB. Luke Hamilton was also running well with PBs in his 60m and long jump and Charlie Hunter in a PB of 10.67secs for his 60m hurdles. Gregor Fraser completed a successful quartet for the boys with an 800m PB of 2.44mins.


The U17s have a strong squad this year and they got their first match of to a flier with Sophie Thomas 1st in her 60m in a time of 7.95secs whist adding a 26.19secs 200m to take first spot there as well. Amy Jenkinson ran an excellent 9.44secs PB in the 60m hurdles to take equal first place in her race while Shayna Asamoah broke her own Club record at 300m to win her race in 41.24secs. There was also a win for Ellie Candlish in the high jump after she cleared 1.52m and Kirstin Penman threw a new Shot Putt PB of 8.34m to finish 4th in that event. The boys were scarce in numbers but high on quality with Oliver Morrison 2nd in his 400m in a 55.38secs PB and Brook Ferguson running a stunning 60m hurdles to win that race in a SB of 9.67secs.


An excellent start for the club and with most of the teams already in the top half of their respective tables hopes are high for a successful SAIL season.


5th March 2023

Emirates Arena, Glasgow

There were also five teams taking part in the SAIL relay Championships being held alongside the league final. It was however to be a fruitless journey as despite a few close calls there were no medals to be won by DTFC.


The U11 girls team started their quest with an excellent 60m PB run of 9.62secs from Alice Thomas where she finished in 2nd spot. Alice also followed this up with a 4th spot and PB in the 600m. Kelseigh Wilson finished 4th in the standing jump and Millie Gordon ran a solid 2.21mins in the 600m however it was not to be and the girls finished 6th out of the 6 teams.


Our U13 girls team were very unfortunate to finish outside the medals as they were 4th, only a point from 3rd spot. Murron Kane ran a superb PB and new age group Club Record of 28.17secs to win the 200m and she added another win in the 60m in 8.87secs. There were excellent performances from Molly Robinson in the 60m hurdles with a run of 11.7secs and Poppy Warner with a 2.36secs 800m run , both finishing 4th . Caitlin Chalmers led the way for the team in the field with a 1.25m PB to finish 3rd in her high jump and a 4th spot in the shot putt after another PB throw of 5.81m. It was a terrific performance from the girls.


The U17 girls team had qualified in second spot but were disappointed to finish outside the medals in 5th spot , 3 points from a medal. The track events were strong for the girls with Sophie Thomas 1st in both the 60m in 7.91secs and the 200m in 25.79 secs. Shayna Asamoah finished 2nd in her 300m in 41.37secs and there was also a 2nd spot in the 60m hurdles for Kirstin Penman in a SB time of 9.59secs. Ruby Candlish was very unfortunate to finish 6th in a very competitive field after an excellent PB run of 2.29mins. The field events however were disappointing for the girls with two 5th finishes and one  6th place finish between the three events costing the girls dearly.


The 4x200m relays saw 2 teams make their respective finals after a round of qualifiers. The U11 girls team of Alice Thomas, Rosie Dyson, Kelseigh Wilson and Millie Gordon finished 5th in their final in a time of 2.19mins . The U17 girls team saw a couple of changes from their National Championship success a month previously, Sarah Kane and Ellie Candlish were added to Shayna Asamoah and Sophie Thomas however the girls were just out of the medals finishing 4th in the final in 1.50mins.


A relatively disappointing finish to the indoor season however over the indoor season there have been some outstanding performances from our athletes with National Championship medals and new Club records throughout our age groups. We move on to the outdoor season with great optimism.
