Cameron set to go from scratch

Berwick flyer Cameron Tindle, who made a big impact in winning the Earlston Games 90m handicap last weekend, is set to appear at Volunteer Park for Hawick Border Games on Sunday, writes John Slorance.

Representing the TLJT club, the talented Tindle bids for the £1,000 first prize from scratch.

Dylan Ali, of Hawick Sprint Club, who came in second to Tindle at Earlston, is off a mark of 6.5m.

Borders athletes set to appear on the Volunteer Park track’s top event include: Ryan Houten (8.5m), Craig Bruce (10.5m), Grant Goodfellow (13m), David McKay (17m), Euan Pettigrew (8.5m), Martha Douglas (22m), Terry Marshall (10m), Jack Wilson (13.5m) and Mhairi Henderson (25m).

Daniel Elliot, Ryan Houten, Cameron Fisher and Cameron Caldwell are the local young guns hoping to blast their way to victory in the 100m under-17 championship which consists of seven runners.

In the senior 800m handicap, Rory Anderson (50m), Dean Whiteford (55m), Andrew Thomson (60m) and Jordan Taylor (70m) are all capable of making their mark for the Borders.

A full programme of senior and youth events completes a Hawick card that starts at 1pm.
