A young Girvan runner came in a superb third in the Scottish schools’ cross country championships at the weekend.
Fraser Stirling, who is only 14 years of age but is running in the under-15 championships this year, came third in the competition which was held at the Magnum Centre in Irvine on Saturday.
Now Fraser has been invited to run for his country as he has been selected to represent Scotland at a cross-country athletics meeting in Wales on March 23.
Fraser was also third in the Ayrshire schools cross-country championships in this first year for him in the under-15 competitions.
The youngster has been running well this year but it was a brilliant result for him on Saturday.
Now he has his focus firmly set on his international debut, and will be cheered on by everyone in the Carrick area.
