More sporting excellence!

IN this week’s Gazette Sport we profile teenage Lanark Golf Club ace Kevin Prentice who has become junior club champion 30 years after his dad Alan.

We’ve also got the recent Olympics and the upcoming Paralympics well covered.

Quothquan teenager Rachel Barr talks about her time as a volunteer at the Olympic eventing competition, while Lanark’s Fiona Kennedy recounts her experiences providing entertainment at the Olympic Park during the Games.

And Lanarkian footballer Jonathan Paterson tells us about how much he is looking forward to representing Team GB seven-a-side football team at the Paralympics.

For more information on these stories, pick up a copy of this week’s Carluke and Lanark Gazette which will be in the shops from this Wednesday, August 22.
