SEVEN teams of competitive Anster Haddies were sent to take part in the Hartley Cup this year.

This time, it was the turn of the men and the juniors to triumph and bring success back to the Anstruther-based club.

The men’s Bluefins team, which was made up of racers Dell Rae, Ewan Lumsden, Stuart McKenzie, Thomas Knox, Jake Grieve and Duncan Hall, were first overall.

The Wee Tunnies junior team comprising Ailsa Cruickshanks, Rosie Knox, Innes Methven, Sally Mills and Lizzie Knox, repeated that success by placing first overall in the junior category.

But there were other respectable performances for fellow Haddies teams taking part.

The Yellow fins, a side made up of Eck Anderson, Ian Mills, Glenn Rickman, George Finlay, Gavin Gibson and Bill Simpson, were next fastest after the victorious Bluefins.

The Prime Fillets, a side which boasted Pamela Cruickshanks, Rachael Grieve, Alice Hall, Hazel Bradley and Jennifer Cruickshanks among its ranks, finished as fastest Haddies’ ladies team.

Next Haddies home were the Skipjacks, including Mike Horsburgh, Christine Bowie, Ewan Cameron, Elise Methven and George Hay.

They were followed by the Dolphin Friendlies side, composed of Fiona Cruickshanks, Dave Nuttall, Tracy Knox, John Dickson and Debz Hay.

Close on their heels were the Albatross team of Richard Bevan, June Penman, Susan Hutchison, Eck Anderson Junior and Tricia Wallace.

This Wednesday will be the November Mars Bar race for competing Haddies members.

Runners are asked to meet at Waid Sports Centre at 6.30pm prompt for a thorough warm-up session before the action gets under way.

The entry fee for those wishing to take part in the race is one Mars Bar.
