Return of Comet Baillie

Posted on 8th May, 2012

We all know that Halley's Comet comes back every 75 years but 2012 saw the return of a lesser  known Comet.  - Former Edinburgh Comet RC  turned Glasgow Courier John Ballie made his return to competitive action after an absence of 35 years when he scorched over the Georgetown in a very respectable 22.43

This season has seen an unprecedented number of comebacks including - John Simpson , back after 40 years- Eddie Nelson 40 years . Scott Johnston  30 years and Finlay Johnston (jnr) 30 years. So come on Messrs Sharp and Barrett- we all know you want to!
