Wragby athlete Jim Gillespie began his comeback from injury in style at Grimsby Stadium last weekend.

Jim won both discus and shot putt at the Cleethorpe’s Trophy Meeting following several weeks out with a calf tear.

He opened with a personal best in the discus of 28.79 metres before producing a winning throw of 8.62 metres in the shot.

Jim said: “I feel that I’m beginning to get into my swing, but still feel that there is more to come. I reckon come the main competitions in June, July and August I’ll be throwing at my best.”
