Inter-Clubs continues to grow

The 2022 Scottish Inter-Club Championship continues to gain momentum, with a double header of fixures on both sides of the country at the weekend.

Dumbarton, venue for CLYDE’s SOUL races

CLYDE hosted the second race in the Scottish Urban League at Dumbarton, and ESOC continued their busy start to 2022 with a SoSOL event at Derghorn in the Pentland Hills.

Battle is well and truly joined in the Small Clubs division; RR fought their way to the top of the table following the SOUL races, only for ELO to stage a counter-attack to regain the lead after the Dreghorn event. STAG and TAY also picked up valuable points across the two events, while KFO remains in contention, despite being short-handed.

ESOC’s lead in the Large Clubs division is now more than 27,000 points, and they have the top five points scorers in the entire league, and seven of the top ten. However, the early season fixtures have gone very much in their favour, with six of the nine rounds in the Lothian area, three of them hosted by ESOC themselves. FVO remains in second place, and CLYDE made major ground to get back within touching distance of MAROC in mid-table.

FVO and ELO continue to lead the Junior Inter-Clubs, while ESOC has established a 2nd team in the Large Clubs competition.

The events come thick and fast, and the next SICC rounds will be an FVO double header this weekend, with the Scottish qualification round of the Compass Sport Cup and Trophy at Callander on Saturday, followed by a Middle distance regional race at Falkirk Wheel on Sunday
