The club held a presentation night for the Primary section based at Crossford Bridge. Club President David Brown hosted the medal and certificate presentation and introduced Andy Robertson, the National Indoor 60m Champion and Commonwealth Games relay team member, who gave the prizes out and signed autographs later. Andy has been with the club since he was eleven and is currently coached by his father.
The young athletes were presented certificates in their 'colour groups', i.e. the groups they train in, and their coaches joined them. Each group selected a winner from activities over the year.

The presentation was preceded by a short video showing a range of activities at the clubs home base at Dane Road.
Thanks to Flixton High School for Girls, there was enough room for all parents and athletes and a stage for the presentations. It was a chance to celebrate and thank all the people who do such good work throughout the year in the Primary section. This is the foundation for others to build on, and as such is the future of the club. Along with the good work that goes on at Sport City and Wythenshawe Park, this introduces many young people to Athletics in the right way.
With the formalities over there was a Professional disco which proved to be very popular as the photos show.
