Health and fitness student Charlie Carstairs put in a grade-A show to take the Champion of Champions 150m Classic title.

A large crowd witnessed the 19-year-old from Lasswade claim the £500 first prize at Earlston High School’s six-lane grass running track.

Victory in the junior 150m went the way of nine-year-old Archie Fuller of Chirnside who once again demonstrated strong front running, and the youths’ 150m was won by the ever-improving Philippa Robertson to give her a memorable double victory, having earlier won the 120m.
