Our New Club Development Officer

We are delighted to introduce our new Club Development Officer – Kirstin Oakley! Kirstin will be a familiar face to past and current members of the Club as she spent many years training as a middle distance athlete and has since then been helping as a Coaching Assistant.

Kirstin’s journey into athletics began when she aced the bleep test at school, setting a new school record, leading her PE teacher to recommend that she give athletics a try. Kirstin joined Ayr Seaforth and quickly established herself as top talent as a middle distance runner nationally from U13 all the way through to U20. Career highlights as a junior athlete include taking 1st place in the Scottish National XC Championships, Scottish National XC Relays and Scottish Schools Championships (1500m and XC). Kirstin’s success lead her to an athletics scholarship in the USA where she continued to compete for her university in Illinois as well as for Ayr Seaforth when she would return home. We believe that Kirstin’s history with the Club, her success as an athlete and experience in coaching make her ideally suited to this role.

The focus of Kirstin’s role will be to support the Club with both volunteer and athlete recruitment, with a particular emphasis on the Ayr North community. She will do this by helping us build strong links with local organisations within Ayr North and through the delivery of athletic sessions for students of Ayr Academy and its associated cluster primary schools.

Kirstin is looking forward to getting started and is excited about the Club’s future prospects as we look forward to our move to a new training facility at Craigie later this year.

We wish Kirstin all the best in the role and hope to see everyone welcome her onboard.

Kirstin can be contacted by email at development@ayrseaforth.co.uk

National Indoor Relay Finals – Emirates Arena,Glasgow – Saturday 20 February 2016

This years National Indoor Relay Finals took place on Saturday at The Emirates Arena, Glasgow and took place alongside the Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix which featured some of the worlds best athletes. There were 5 teams from Seaforth who had qualified to compete in the semi-finals on the day hoping to gain a place in the finals which were competed immediately before the start of the main event giving the young athletes the chance to compete in front of a large crowd.

First on the track were the u13 boys team of Lewis Martin, Fergus Muir, Magnus Friel & Alex Crooks who were doing well until a dropped baton at a change over. The team picked it up and continued but unfortunately as per the rules they were disqualified.

In the u15 girls age group there were 2 Seaforth teams who had been drawn against each other in the first semi-final. The ‘A’ team of Sophie Slider, Bethany Haugh, Emma Struthers & Gemma Bruce qualified for the final with a time of 1:52.95 but for the ‘B’ team of Holly McIntyre, Megan Smith, Georgia Brown & Sophie Woods who were 6th with a time of 1:58.87 it was the end of their participation in this years event. In the final the ‘A’ team were a creditable 4th in 1:53.78.

The u15 boys team of Euan Duff, Marc Mulgrew, Jamie McCullough & Jack Edwards came 2nd in their heat with a time of 1:47.10 qualifying for the final later in the morning. In that final they came home in 4th place with a time of 1:47.23 narrowly missing a medal.

The u17 mens team of Stuart Dunlop, Michael Bargh, Callum Meldrum & Rory McCrindle were 4th in their heat with a time of 1:38.90 but as one of the 2 fastest losers outside the top 2 in each semi-final they qualified for the final. In that final despite their best attempts they could only narrowly improve on their time coming home in 5th place with a time of 1:38.66.

Overall this was a valuable experience for each of these young athletes with the bonus that they were given tickets to stay and watch the International competition which followed.

West District Cross Country Relays – Hamilton Racecourse – Sunday 11 October 2015

Sunday saw the start of the 2015 cross country season with the West District Cross Country Relays taking place at Hamilton Racecourse. Conditions on the day were unusually warm for a cross country meeting and when coupled with the dry weather we have been enjoying it was certainly not what experienced cross country athletes are used to.

The first race of the day was the Young Females race where each team comprises of 3 athletes taking on the 2.5km course with the first runner being in the u13 age group, the next either u13 or u15 and the third runner u15 or u17.  Seaforth had 3 teams in this race with the ‘A’ team finishing in 7th place, the ‘B’ team in 23rd place and the ‘C’ team in 36th place from 60 teams.

Next up was the Young Males race where Seaforth had 4 teams entered. The Seaforth ‘A’ team finished in 9th place only a mere 5 seconds from 8th place, the ‘B’ team in 20th place, the ‘C’ team in 36th place and the ‘D’ team in 47th place from 57 teams.

This was followed by the Senior Females race which saw each of the 3 athletes making up the team complete a 4km course. Seaforth had a solo team entered and after a valiant display they finished in 4th place from 34 teams on the start line.

The Senior males race saw teams of 4 athletes take on the 4km course, Seaforth had a single complete team participate and a team of 2 athletes in an incomplete team. The complete team finished in  33rd place from 57 teams.
