Duo miss out on Euro squad

Scout Adkin and Louise Mercer missed out on selection for the UK under-20s squad to compete in the European Mountain Running Championships in Turkey.

Moorfoots’ Adkin was fifth in the junior race on Winder Hill in Cumbria, while 16-year-old Mercer of Teviotdale performed well in an age group which she will be in for a number of years.

Mercer will run for Scotland in the Under-18 International Youth Cup in Ireland on June 24.
