Posted by Administrator on Fri 21 October 2016

We are very sorry to inform you that one of the stalwarts of local athletics has passed away today in hospital. 

Jack Walters has supported most of the current timekeepers in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and many other counties across the Midlands. He has always been so supportive of new and trainee timekeepers

Jack was a kind and dedicated athletics enthusiast. He supported events for children, adults, championships, open meetings and schools events. Despite being a Nottinghamshire officials, he has been frequently seen on the timekeeper's stand at the  Loughborough track on his own, when there was nobody else available. as well as of many competitions at Loughborough and Leicester.

We will pass on news of his funeral as soon as we hear anything further. Our thoughts are with his family.
