In tough, windy conditions Michael Curran recorded an excellent time of 56 minutes 29 seconds, Ross Milvenan 1.01.39, Andy Conway 1.06.20 and John Gemmell 1.08.17. Fastest rider was Dougie Watson, GTR, in a time of 48.53 while Marc Anderson of Loudoun Road Club was the quickest Ayrshire rider. John had a busy weekend having travelled to Arran on Saturday with club mate Archie Arthur to complete the Arran Sportive. This event is in its fourth year and is organised by and in aid of Ocean Youth Trust Scotland, a charity which helps to deliver life changing sail training voyages to young people from disadvanta­ged background­s. The route covers 56 miles clockwise around the island. John and Archie had a tough day in the wind, especially on the home leg back to Brodick. However, they completed the ride with Archie being just under the three hours and John taking 20 minutes off his previous time coming home in 3 hours 2 minutes. The good weather on Thursday evening enticed both timekeeper­s and riders to slip in an extra club 10 for the year. A dry but windy night recorded some good times, Calum MacDonald 21.59, Iain Fisher 24.31, Robert Kelly 25.15, Aileen Fisher 25.23, Beth Macrae 25.29. Calum followed up his success by taking part in the Peebles duathlon, comprised of a 5km run, 20km cycle and finished with another 5km run. His strong cycling performanc­e carried him to sixth place overall in the event. The Sunday club social run took in a southerly circuit of 40 miles, heading to Dalrymple, Kirkmichae­l, Straiton, Kilkerran, Maybole and back via the coast. With the cyclocross season about to enter full swing, young Oliver Kelly headed over to Inch Park for Edinburgh Road Club’s opening event for youths and women.

Katrina crossed the line in a time of 52: 20. On Saturday, Roddy Dunn tackled the River Ayr Way Ultra, a 40 mile run from Glenbuck Loch to Dam Park in Ayr. It had a bit of everything and whilst dry on the day, the rain of last week made the conditions underfoot less than perfect, soft mostly but with some serious bog in parts and one point almost knee deep. The middle section hit the legs hard and after 57km of trail coming out on to road at Auchincrui­ve was a contrast but despite the challenges of the day Roddy finished 32nd male and 38th overall. Also on Saturday, Alan Hiddleston took to the pool competing at the Inverclyde Masters securing three second places and one third place, also winning in the mixed medley and freestyle relays. 19’ s) round 1: Caledonian YFC 2 AC Irvine 3; Ayr Boswell Colts 4 KSC Kilwinning Rangers 3; Troon FC 7 Bonnyton Thistle FC 0. 1; Hurlford Utd 0 Glenburn MW 10; Tass Thistle 2 Stewarton Annick 4; Caledonian YFC 6 Bellfield BC 1; FA Cup ( Under 15’ s) Round 1: Irvine Meadow A Valspar Colts A; Galston YFC 12 Bellfield Royals 0; KSC Kilwinning Rangers Whites 5 Dean Thistle 0; KSC Kilwinning Rangers Blue 5 Nith United 2; Glenburn MW A Cambusdoon FC A; Bonnyton Thistle 8 Girvan Juniors 2; Charles Hoggit SR Memorial Cup ( Under 13’ s) preliminar­y round: Cambusdoon FC 3 Irvine Meadow 12; Presidents Cup ( Under 13’ s) preliminar­y round: Cumnock Juniors 7 Troon Thistle YFC 4; Dean Colts 0 Glenburn MW 12; Tom Young Cup ( Under 14’ s) preliminar­y round: KFA Inter 2 Dalrymple Colts 3; Dreghorn Moorfield BC 12 Cunningham­e YFC 0; Under 17’ s League: Glentyan Thistle 4 Stewarton United 2; Valspar AC 0 Bellfield Royals 9; Whitletts Vics 1 Troon FC 7; Under 19’ s League: Ayr Juniors 2 Whitletts Vics 5; Irvine United 2 Valspar FC 4; FA Cup ( Under 16’ s) preliminar­y round: Caledonian 6 Annan Athletic 2; FA Cup ( Under 15’ s) round 1: Threave Rovers 1 Cumnock Juniors 3; FA Cup ( Under 16’ s) round 1: Brandane Bulls 2 Valspar Athletico 6; Coylton FC 9 Heston Rovers 1; Dalry Thistle 9 KFA Rovers 1; Galloway Thistle YFC 0; Galston YFC 8; Irvine Victoria 7 Clark Drive 2; KSC Kilwinning Rangers White 0 Dean Thistle 3; Lochar Thistle Youth AFC 7 Troon FC 2; Stewarton Annick 7 Dean Colts 1; Townhead United 0 Tass Thistle 5; Troon Thistle 0 KSC Kilwinning Rangers Blue 9; FA Cup ( Under 17’ s) round 1: Caledonian Thistle 5 Troon Thistle Titans 1; Hurlford 2 Auchinleck Talbot 5; FA Cup ( Under VICS IN COMMUNITY Whitletts Vics Community programme has received another funding boost from McDonald’s ( A G Restaurant­s) with the purchase of a range of training equipment that will help with the ongoing developmen­t of 2008 and 2010 teams.
