Important announcement by our Chairman – please read

It is with great regret that I must announce the retirement of Robert Jacques (AKA Bob) from Birtley AC in March this year.

Bob leaves the club after some 25+ years as a competitor, track and field official and Finance officer. Bob as finance officer looked after club and competitor registrations, event applications and management of club finances to mention but a few, and this management has meant that he leaves the club in a strong financial position from which to build on. Everyone at the club would like to wish him a happy, healthy retirement.

Bob’s retirement adds to the list of coaching and administrative staff that have hung up their spikes, pens and computers; over the last year we have lost some 80+ years of experience, which is going to be hard to replace.

However, in order for the club to continue to function and athletes to be entered into competitions, we must continue to provide the administration and finance functions that Bob leaves behind. As such I am imploring anyone who has some computer, finance or administrative skills and is willing to assist in some or all of the above functions to make themselves known to Ed, Val or myself. Bob, I am sure, will be willing to assist in the handover of the role before he retires, and we will all assist in any way we can to make the transition as smooth as possible.
