At the County AGM on Monday evening 16th April, Norman Waterson was announced the first winner of the Merseyside award for Services to Athletics.
Norman has been immersed in athletics from his school days as a runner, coach, team manager, club committee member and president of his athletics club, Wirral AC. His greatest contribution to the sport has probably been as a coach, preparing and supporting female athletes in particular to compete at the highest levels including international. He has coached athletes who have gone on to achieve podium positions in national events. He has progressed through the coaching ranks, never ceasing to take the opportunity to continually learn and develop his coaching skills.
He has also regularly stepped up to the mark over many years to take on admin, organisational and logistical roles within his club.
With regret I have to post that Jim Green passed away on Saturday 10th March.
Jim and his wife Pat have been stalwarts in athletics not only at club, county and Northern but also at International level.
Our thoughts are with Pat and her family at this time. Arwel Williams, Chair, Merseyside County Athletic Association
