The number of Law athletes in the rankings appeared to be in decline with only nine athletes being represented and rather worryingly only one individual under the age of seventeen and no females. That being said there were a number of fine performances throughout the year with no fewer than 27 Championship medals being won.

In the Senior Men's 1500m Iian Murdoch ran a very creditable 3mins 44.90secs to finish 3rd in the rankings, the best performance from a Law athlete since the days of Ian McCafferty. He also finished 4th in the 3000m with a time of 8mins 21.67secs. During the season his consistent running earned him a couple of National Vests where he competed with distinction.

Jamie Reid continued to be amongst the the top athletes in the distance events finally topping the rankings in the Marathon with a time of 2hrs 21mins 46secs when winning the National Title at Fort William. He also medalled in the Half Marathon, picking up the bronze medal with a time of 67mins 07secs. He also made the top ten in the 5000m, 10000m, 5k Road, 10k Road and 10mile Road rankings. Making 7 appearances in the yearbook he broke Alaister Russell's and Frankie Murphy's club record of 6 appearances. Alaister Russell made his 19th appearance and his 12th consecutive year in the yearbook, a record which may last for a number of years to come.

Under 20 athlete Tony Cunningham, a recent recruit from Avonside, had an excellent season in the sprints, topping the 100m with a time of 10.7secs, the 200m with a time of 22.3secs and finishing runner up in the 400m with a time of 49.68secs. At the National and District Championships he took the gold medal over the 200m and the silver over the 100m events. A great asset to the club, hopefully for a number of years to come.

The only youngster to make the rankings was Craig Henshaw who was ranked 9th in the Under 13s 100m with a time of 13.6secs.

Finally, Colin McMaster had an injury ridden season, only managing to clear 2m to finish 5th in the rankings, his lowest position as a Senior. Unfortunately due to persistent and niggling ankle injury Colin had to make the agonising decision to hang up his spikes at the end of season. Having represented the club, Scotland and Great Britain with great distinction he will be sadly missed by everyone. At Club level only Ian McCafferty has had more success than Colin.
