Two stalwart servants of Devon athletics passed away this week.
Kieran DORE of Newton Abbot AC was a wonderful supporter of Devon AA. Many will remember him as the knowledgeable and friendly Marksman at Devon Opens and lots of School competitions. He is a great loss to his club and the county.
Roger HARRIS was a distinguished Sprints and Hurdles Coach for many years at City of Plymouth AC and a frequent Starter at local Track & Field events.
