Recently crowned Border Athletics 90 metres sprint champion Cameron Tindle of Berwick is back marker for the Morebattle Games 110 metres handicap on Saturday.

Tindle, who won the 90 metres Championship in tip top style at Langholm Games last week, has been placed on the scratch mark by handicapper Ernie Blair while Hawick speed merchant Dylan Ali, who came in a place behind Tindle in last week’s title battle, runs off three metres.

A lady runner has yet to win a sprint handicap on the Border Games circuit this season and bidding to change this on the Morebattle card are Langholm Games sprint finalist Martha Douglas (22.5m), Megan Shiel (25m), Holly McKay (25m) and Mhairi Henderson (27.5m).

Amongst a host of Border athletes set to get down on their marks for the feature Morebattle sprint are Cameron Grieve (10.5m), Darren Tomlinson (16m), Eoin Lowther (10.5m), Kevin Amos (19m), Connor Gillan (9.5m), Craig Bruce (11m), Gordon McPherson (15.5m) and Leon Ali (11.5m).

All of the competitors in the sprint also compete in a one lap handicap (266 metres).

Berwick youngster Nathan Cox of Morpeth Harriers, a runner of great ability, is off scratch in the 800, 1600 and 3200 metres handicap.

Sophie Collins of Moorfoot AC (270m) and Niamh Shaw of West Linton (270m) are the two lady representatives in the 1600 metres handicap while Kobe Stevens (45m), Jacob Adkin (50m), Andrew Thomson (110m) and Bruce Hughes (80m) are some of the Borderers in the mile.

A full programme of youth’s events completes the card.
