Last weekend saw the Emirates hosting the FPSG Age Group Champs.
Whitemoss had a run of success - in particular we should focus on Whitemoss’s very own Dean Springett. According to the Scottish Athletics website ‘The main highlight of the FPSG U15 Champs came in the Boys 300m final as Whitemoss AAC athlete, Dean Springett, clocked 38.38 to win gold with a Scottish Record and CBP performance.’
