AiS Number 21

Just what it says but note that when there was a race on, there was a report in!   The magazine did not have a narrow focus – there was a fairly detailed coaching article on the discus, a review of the year by Colin Shields, and hill running was covered by Jimmy Jardine.   The writing was also of a good standard by recognised authorities – I assume that Arthur Leet writer Richard Francis was Frank Dick, Derek Parker who would later coach such top class athletes as Robert Quinn and Hayley Haining, and George himself all contributed.   The photographs were contributed in the main by Ben Bickerton of Shettleston Harriers who had been a professional photographer and contributed greatly to Walter Ross’s two magazines.     It must also have been one of the most viable financially of the magazines with four full page adverts in fifteen pages of text.
