COULD YOU SPARE A FEW HOURS AT AN EVENT? 

The club takes part in several track and field leagues over the summer – the Cheshire League, Youth Development League and Northern League. We earn points for each official/ helper we provide at these events, which count towards our athletes’ score for each round, and so help them continue to compete at the highest levels. All officials and helpers at these events, as at West Cheshire AC itself, are unpaid volunteers. 

Roles involve: recording finishing positions; recording finishing times on the track, and distances and heights in field events; and ensuring that rules are followed. Training takes a couple of hours. If you are at an event to watch, helping out in this way makes a long day fly by, and keeps you in the middle of the action! 

If you feel that you could help the club out in this way, or just want to learn more, please speak to our club Track and Field Officer and coach Dennis Wall, who can be contacted at: dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com 

PLEASE RENEW YOUR CLUB MEMBERSHIP – AND PLEASE KEEP UP WITH TRACK FEES! 

Please could all members who have yet to renew their membership please do so by following the link in the email sent by Jane Pughe, our membership secretary, in March. Thank you. 

And please can all members who train at the Ellesmere Port Sports Village keep up to date with track fee payments. You can receive email reminders to top-up your account when it is running low, by clicking the link you received when setting up your account. 

2022 GUILDEN SUTTON 10km ROAD RACE 

Entries are now open for this year’s West Cheshire AC-organised Guilden Sutton 10k on Sunday September 18th. If you can help out for what is only a couple of hours at a local event on a Sunday morning, please contact Dennis Wall. The earlier you can let Dennis know, the better – as with all of our races, it won’t happen without volunteers, and it can’t go ahead until we know that we have enough volunteers to keep all runners safe and on course. 

And, If you are running the race, the club does require that you provide Dennis with the name of a friend or family member who can help out on the day. 

NORTHERN TRACK & FIELD LEAGUE 

West Cheshire AC compete in the North West Premier Division of the Northern Track & Field League. 

Please can club members in the Under 17 and older age groups let team managers Dave McKay, Jenny Manning and Alan Littler know if they are available to compete on Sunday July 10th at Robin Park, Wigan and Saturday August 6th at Witton Park, Blackburn. The more events we manage to get two members in, the more points we get, the more likely we are to remain in the top flight!
