This year saw a slight improvement with 11 athletes making the rankings and it was encouraging to see a number of youngsters making their debuts.

Roy Overend coached Ian Murdoch was the star performer, heading the 1500m rankings with a time of 3mins 45.5secs and the mile with a time of 4mins 03.9secs, the first Law athlete to have this honour since Ian McCafferty since the early '70s. He was also ranked 14th in the 800m and 16th in the 5000m. During the season he won the National Title over 1500m and represented his country in a number of International matches. Also coached by Roy Overend, Tony Cunnigham made a fairly successful transition to the Senior ranks, finishing in the top 35 in the 100m, 200m and 400m. The only other Senior to make the rankings was Graeme Ferguson, finishing 16th in the Shot Putt and 29th in the Discus, also picking up another two District medals to add to his collection

Other than Melanie Clyde who finished 8th in the Under 15s Long Jump everyone else was a debutant. In the Under 15s Timothy Liggat had a successful season finishing 5th in the 60m, 13th in the 100m, 14th in the 200m and 9th in the Long Jump. Gary Grieve reached 7th spot in the 800m with a time of 2mins 07.9secs and during the season he picked up the bronze medal at the National Championships.

In the Under 17s Craig Strachan is getting ever closer to the 2min barrier, finishing 16th with a time of 2mins 02.7secs and David Martin is improving steadily in the Triple Jump finishing in 20th place with a jump of 1m 50cm.

Ross McDonald, in the Under 13 age group made 7th spot in the High Jump with a jump of 1m 40cm.

The most noteable absentees from the ranking lists this year were Alaister Russell (the first for 12 years) who is dedicating most of his time to coaching the club's up and coming athletes, Colin McMaster (the first for 9 years) who had to retire due to injury and Jamie Reid who moved to Ron Hill Cambuslang.
