Two Gainsborough cadets have been selected for this weekend’s national athletics championships in Grantham.

Kay-Cee Bowers and George Williams have both earned a place on the Eastern Region squad, for the National Army Cadet Force (ACF) Championships at Mers Sports Stadium.

Bowers will be running in 1,500m while Williams, who is proving to be a very versatile all-rounder on the track, has been chosen for the 100m and 400m, plus the 4 x 100m relay.

Action at Grantham starts at 11am when hundreds of cadets from all over the UK compete in both track and field events.

In all, 19 cadets from Lincolnshire ACF will be representing their region.

As the current ACF National Champions , Eastern will be eager to repeat last year’s success.
