Sporting success for Scots

March 15, 2017

Altcar Training Camp was the venue for this year’s ACFA National Cross Country Championship and the Six-A-Side National Football Competition. 

Cadets from all over the UK took to the start line for the cross-country.

Those representing Scotland put in a strong showing with the Senior Boys runners-up in their team event. The Junior Boys were third in the team event.

The Senior Girls team were crowned champions in their class, while the Junior Girls were third in the team event.

Very well done to Cadet Galesha Paterson (1st Battalion the Highlanders ACF) who scooped the Individual title for Junior Girls. In the Senior Girls Individual, SSGT Williamson and SSGT Gray were second and third respectively.

Overall ACFA National Champions were Eastern England, with Scotland runners-up.

Others taking part from Scotland included LCpl Giacomo Innes and Cdt Hugh MacKay, both from 1st Battalion the Highlanders ACF.

Meantime, the Six-A-Side National Football Competition also featured competitors from all over the UK.

Once again Scotland performed really well with the Seniors narrowly missing out on a place in the final after a 2-1 loss to South East – who went on to scoop the Senior title. The Junior title went to North East.
