Forget all the other cup finals (the ones with the round ball) the FCC is the one to win, and Douglas Tullie did just that at the weekend, winning M20E by 8 minutes to book his automatic place in the British Team for the Junior World Champs this July. You will remember that Douglas and James dead-heated in the same competition 2 years ago, a feat unlikely to be repeated. This will be Douglas’ 3rd and last time at JWOC, as he joins the senior ranks in 2009.
The Scottish Junior Squad were also in attendance at the FCC, running in their normal badge classes. Kirstin Maxwell had 2 good runs, finishing 4th on both days. Sarah Tullie gave Kirstin a good run for her money on Day 1 finishing in 5th but had a slight blip on Day 2 to finish 18th. Karen Maxwell, still in her first year at W14, finished 7th and 14th while Ian and Eileen were 11th/15th and 11th/5th respectively.
