John Rogers


I am a retired company overseas operations executivewith multinational organisations, latterly with what is now Givaudan, on the Bachelors Willesborough site.

Athletic History

A middle distance athlete I represented Scotland as a Junior, and Cheshire as a Senior . Running 800  metres at the old White City Venue at Inter-county UK Championships.

Career requirements put an end to competitive athletics, and from the mid 1960’s to the 1990’s ,as a pastime in support of schools and community athletics, I undertook coaching in Africa, South America, and the Far East.

I joined Ashford AC coaching team in 1998.My selected age groups for club coaching is 9-13 years for both boys and girls. This is a challenging age group for youngsters as physical and emotional changes play a significant part in the development of their physical and mental approach to “what am I as an individual performer and contributor to team performance” Am I a runner, thrower , or jumper? Or perhaps all three! Who is the next Jessica Ennis?

Maybe Ashford AC can help you.
