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.
North Devon AC Primary School group coach and volunteer Keith REGAN lost his long, but brave fight with cancer and passed away recently. He was a great supporter of the club and officiated regularly at the Gliddon & Squire XC League. We will miss his positive and very cheerful contribution to NDAC. Our thoughts are with his wife Janet and family.
