TRAINING CANCELLED ON SATURDAY
There’s no training for the under 11s, under 13s and under 15s at the track this Saturday. It’s not all bad news though as you can take part in the free-of-charge Essar West Cheshire AC Schools Cross Country Races instead.

Registration is from 9.15am with the first race at 10am.

AGM NEWS
Dan Gilroy was re-elected club president at Friday’s AGM, while Andy Carter was re-elected club chairman, Clare Mallon replaced Kay Hayes as club secretary, and Lisa Davies replaced Bob Benson as club treasurer.

Other committee members are: Dennis Wall (vice-chairman and Track and Field Officer), Peter Smith (Cross Country Officer), John Parlevliet (Road Race Officer), Debbie Baker (Membership Officer), and Eddie Gore (Facilities Officer).

Mike Lamb was elected as a life vice-president.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALICE AND LIAM
We’d all like to congratulate sprinters Alice McMahon and Liam Davoren who announced their engagement on Saturday. Looks like we might all need a new hat soon.

FANCY A NEW CLUB HOODY?
New hoodies are available at £12 each. If you’d like to order one, please let us know what size you need from the list below together with your payment in an envelope to the club office by next Tuesday (12th December).

Kids Large (32″) Age 9-11; Kids XLarge (34″) Age 12-13; Adult (36″) (Small); Adult (40″) (Medium). Because of  legislation, kids’ versions don’t have cords on the hoods.

The order will be placed on 13th December based on numbers received – you can’t reserve a hoodie without payment.
