Not quite sure whats going on with the club blog, with some of the head lines, by the club president and the remarks about younger athletes in the national. Maybe someone has been drinking and blogging at the same time or maybe it is personal attack on coaches and young athletes.
I seem to remember coaching a u15 boy athlete who was 2nd with 800m to go, and finished 4th and ran his best race of the year, in the nationals. I also seem to remember another athlete i coached wnning a medal at the nationals cc champs. But maybe the club president was still eating his breakfast, when i was already at the event shouting on the young harriers who had trained all through the winter to turn up for the club.
I believe this comment by the club president, to be personal and vindictive to the coaches in the club who go unpaid and spend half there life helping the athletes they coach. This is the first time in 30 years of running and coaching in the harriers that a club president has said such things about coaches and these young clydesdale harriers who try there hardest for the club and i believe the only thing to do is to resign from the harriers and id hope that the club would have the decency to mention the fact at the AGM,as a harrier who left last year after 40 years running for the club didnt even get mentioned.
