Background

I have been involved in athletics for 15 years, starting my career as a 9 year old middle distance runner at Walton AC.

Then in 2010 I moved to Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow AC (WSEH) taking up long distance and steeplechase, achieving County, Southern and National Medals. Whilst at WSEH I also became Team Manager for the YDL Upper Age Group and had the honour of winning the YDL final in 2013

After 3 seasons at WSEH I moved back to Walton AC continuing with steeplechase and taking my coaching course and setting up the Junior Competition Training Group.

Coaching

I am a Level 2 Athletics Development Coach, and I coach the Junior Distance Development Group. The group train on Tuesday/ Thursday evenings 6:30-8:00pm and Sunday mornings 10:30-12:00.

Throughout my athletics career I have gained valuable knowledge to enable athletes to fulfil their potential. During my time at WSEH I was coached by former GB Team Manager Conrad Milton who passed on his years of experience coaching several international athletes. This has been invaluable in helping me develop and mould into the coach I am today.

Other club involvement

I am the Equipment and Facilities officer on the Committee responsible for maintenance and purchase of all equipment. I am also in the process of undertaking my Starter & Starters Assistant Officials Course.
