Congratulations to Bob Appleby on correctly identifying the July Picture Quiz as Eddie Hedley our Senior Sprints Coach.
The picture was taken in the Borders, possibly Melrose or Selkirk, when Eddie competed as a highly accomplished professional sprinter himself.
Our August picture (above) was taken at the 1969 UK Inter Counties Track & Field Championships.
The scene is the Men’s 5000m, we want you please to identify the race leader (No 20), who eventually went on to become a highly accomplished GB distance specialist, and became a very influential figure in the sport in later life.
At the same time, only for interest, if anyone could please identify the third or fourth placed North East Counties competitor,
we would appreciate your help in that.
