CLUB PRESIDENT: JOHN GLOVER became our Club President in November 2014, following on from Ossie McCauley. John set up the club in 1989 (see history page) and is as active a member these days, both running himself and coaching our thriving ‘Monday night mob’ group, on Mondays AND Thursdays! John is charged with the challenging announcer’s job at our summer Firmus Super 6 series for which task his obvious interest and knowledge of the athletes involved, from across the province, is invaluable.
Lagan Valley Athletic Club is run by a Committee which is elected by the members annually at our AGM in November. The Committee meet on a regular basis to discuss a variety of issues such as Coaching Development, Competition Structure, Recruitment, Travel to Competition outside Northern Ireland and Child Protection and of course help organise our very own Firmus Super 6 series. Like our coaches, these positions are all voluntary and much of the work that is done by them is ‘behind the scenes’. Anyone linked to the club is welcome to stand for committee. We would encourage all members and parents of junior members to attend our AGM and participate as fully as possible in the club.
