I have been involved in athletics, mainly as an athlete since I was 13yrs old. I came to Walton AC in approx 1986 after a break from athletics for about 10 years.
I still see myself as an athlete as well as a coach. I train 3-4 times per week and compete for the senior team and the masters team in throws. I also compete in masters athletics at national and international level.
I am a Level 2 Group Events coach and I coach throws on a Tuesday evening with Sabrina Mace. We have developed a growing group of younger throwers over the last 18 months, who are now winning medals and representing the county.
I also run strength and conditioning circuit sessions on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings mainly with senior athletes.
I have a good knowledge of throws techniques and of general fitness and conditioning required for athletics. I’ve obviously had many years of experience as a reasonable standard athlete competing in sprints, throws and jumps.
Other club involvement
I am the Official and Volunteer Coordinator for Walton AC and take responsibility for organising most of the home matches at the track. I am also a qualified Field Official at level 2b and organise officials for home matches and training for new officials. I have been on the committee at Walton AC for many years and was Hon Secretary until 2017, when we changed the committee roles.
