Alan French retires from his time keeping duties

Alan French has been at the club more years than I can remember, when I joined as a youngster in 1979/1980 he was one of the 'Old Guard' then! He has been a loyal and faithful supporter of the club even when he had to give up running himself.  Even if you do not know him personally you will know him from being at the start and finish of most of the club winter handicap runs for a very long time. What you don't know was what a great athlete he was himself, in the days before the Internet and the Power of 10 or Run Britain it was very difficult to keep track of peoples results, however Dave Smyth has provided a profile of Alan's early achievements to show the quality he was. This can be found at . Dave also has many of club newsletters from days gone by, which we will post on the archives page to keep the history of the club alive.
