I joined Ashford AC in 1965 and have thrown shot and discus for over 50 years. I was KCAA Under 17 Discus Champion in 1965 and my Club Record of 46.24m in the same year still stands today.
I have been a throws coach for around 40 years. Specialising in shot and discus, I am a level 3 UKA throws coach and I am on the local coach development programme.
The highlight of my throwing career was travelling to Moscow to throw for the British Railways team in the European Railway Championships. I have also coached both of my daughters to appearances at ESAA championships with one of them going on to be ranked 3rd in the UK Under 20 rankings.
Key to my coaching strategy is for my athletes to enjoy the coaching process and to have clear goals and objectives set and reviewed regularly. In all throwing events SAFETY is paramount however I also follow the England athletics slogan : FUN TO FULFILMENT.
