ANENT SCOTTISH RUNNING

Scottish Universities athletics for 1935 are now available with some interesting photographs, mainly from the Courier.   Women’s athletics really took off in the 1930’s and the preponderance of women’s pics over the men’s is maybe an indication of this.

We now have the Scotland  v  Ireland Internationals up to 1913 on site at this link.   Spoiler: Scotland won both.

The first ever Scottish track and field international was against Ireland in 1895.   Eleven events, match to be decided on number of events won by each side.   We now have all matches between 1895 and 1913, when they ceased because of the War and were replaced by the Triangular with England,  up at this link. .
