JACK LAWRIE will line up on the track for Scotland tomorrow after he was selected to race at the Manchester International.

The 22-year-old, who has represented Pitreavie AAC from the beginning of his athletics career but has additionally been competing for Essex-based Woodford Green AC, has been named in the Scottish Athletics squad for the event.

Lawrie is one of 30 Scottish athletes that will compete across 19 events, which will also bring competitors from England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the British Athletic League / UK Women’s League, GB Juniors and Iceland together.

He is scheduled to compete in the 400m hurdles, in which he won a silver medal at the same meet 12 months ago, and the 4x400m relay.

Named as Dunfermline and West Fife Sports Council’s Sports Person of the Year for 2017, Lawrie has enjoyed success on the track despite missing out on selection for April’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

After claiming 400m hurdles and 200m Scottish East District Championship victories, he finished fourth at May’s Loughborough International before regaining his England Athletics Under-23 and Under-20 Championship title the following month.

The event, which was in effect a British championship for competitors in those age groups, attracted almost 1,000 athletes and, after picking up silver last year and winning gold in 2016, he raced to victory in the under-23 men’s 400m hurdles in a time of 51.39 seconds.

Lawrie was then in action at the British Athletics Championships in Birmingham where, in a race featuring Dai Greene, who was due to run at the European Championships for Great Britain but pulled out with injury, he placed fifth in a season’s best of 50.97.
