County Appointments:

Ray Vose has been appointed Merseyside team manager for the cross country season. Phil Thomas continues as the County Fell Running team manager.

Cheshire League : Sports City : 29 May:

This match has been postponed as Sports City is unavailable on that date. The probable new date is Sunday 11 September. Everyone is encouraged to attend the George Edwards Memorial Meeting at Warrington on Monday 30 May instead.

News From Committee:

The April Committee meeting lasted for 38 minutes, that's 18 minutes longer than the March meeting. We were pleased to have in attendance Roger McCall and Tony Walsh both of whom were responsible for overseeing the capital sum raised from the sale of the former clubhouse. Roger explained the history of the sale and the purpose for which the monies were raised.

The Committee noted the receipt of monies from Club Futures and the following additions to our list of coaches, Craig Knight (L1), Steve Moran (L1), Joe Ehlen (L2 throws and jumps), Roseanne Hutchinson (L2 throws). L1 coaching courses will become available in the near future and anyone interested should contact Joe Ehlen or Phil Thomas for details.

Membership continues to flourish and progress has been made on producing the sign to announce the track as our home base. The LMC's letter regarding the 250 compensation they sent for the clash between our road race and the Liverpool Half Marathon was read to cheer up the committee.

Please note that at all training sessions coaches are required to take registers of athletes coaches on that evening. This forms part of coaching duties and is an integral part of the clubmark scheme. It also meets other critieria essential to good administrative practice. Coaches can obtain their registers from Julia.

The next Committee meeting is on Thursday 26 May at 8.30.p.m. Any member wishing to raise matters can do so by contacting Julia Hayes or Phil Thomas.


It is still possible to become a grade 4 official by standing (as it's called) at five meetings during a season. Phil Thomas has the forms so if you want to help the club in this way please ask Phil for a form and put in your five meetings for qualification. It's not a lot to do.
