SURREY UNDER-20 HAMMER RECORD - Gareth Cook has informed us that he threw the 6kg Hammer 63.80m whilst representing England Schools in the ISF World Gymnasiade held in Nice on 4/6 June 1986. This performance is now recognised as the Surrey Record. Therefore Peter Cassidy (Guildford & Godalming AC) and Munroe Ritchie (Crawley AC) have until the end of this season to try and better Gareth's throw. The confusion arose because, in 1986, in the UK Under-20 Men were throwing a 6.25kg Hammer and Gareth's throw being achieved under International Rules which prescribed a 6kg Hammer meant that his throw was not included in the UK rankings. Surrey Under-20 Men Records.

JOHN MORRIS 1932 - 2016
- It is with regret that we have to inform you of the death of John "Johnny" Morris, who died in St Georges Hospital, Tooting, at 83 years of age. John joined Belgrave Harriers in November 1958 and was a long
distance walker. In 1971 he became a centurion, walking 100 miles in under 24 hours. After retiring from competitive
athletics he became a graded track and field official and for many years officiated at the county championships and
local club meetings.
MALCOLM BURTON 1943 - 2016

As a member of Mitcham AC during the late-1950s and the 1960s he won the Surrey Junior Men's Mile title in 1960. He maintained an interest in athletics during his later years through spectating at Crystal Palace and in 2012 by going with his granddaughters to the London Olympics. Profile.
SURREY MILE RECORD FOR OLI AITCHISON - Competing in the Husky Classic meeting in Seattle, USA Oli Aitchison (Aldershot, Farnham & District AC) set a new Surrey record for 1 Mile indoors on 13th February 2016.

As advertised on this page for many months now, Mike Scott is this year reducing his involvement with the SCAA photo-finish service. Unsurprisingly (given the huge amount of work that Mike has put into this activity each year) no one individual has come forward to take over the role. However, a team of SCAA officials, including several with extensive PF experience as Technical Officials, will be taking on the PF service for 2016. Mike will continue to play an important part, but as member of a wider team which will between them cover all aspects of the service.
The initial priority is to resource Surrey County AA events, but it is intended that, as the expertise of the team progresses, we will start to take on events promoted by Surrey affiliated clubs and other competition providers. A decision regarding the extent of this is expected to be taken in mid-April. Until that time, it will generally not be possible to take any bookings, but expressions of interest can be sent to SCAA via Margaret Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org). Margaret will save the dates concerned (if not already reserved) until such time as a decision is made on whether the event can be resourced.
CONGRATULATIONS TO BILL LUCAS DFC -
Former Surrey president and team manager Bill Lucas, DFC, was guest of honour at a celebration tea at Belgrave Hall on Sunday to mark 80 years' membership of Belgrave Harriers. Bill, who is in his 100th year, represented Britain in the 5000m at the Wembley Olympics in 1948 after just one year's training after serving in the RAF's Bomber Command for seven years and flying 81 missions, surviving unharmed. When he retired from active athletics, Bill was a valuable asset for the county as team manager during one of the most successful periods for Surrey in the UK Inter-Counties cross country championships.
Many older members of Belgrave Harriers and representatives of the South of England AA and Surrey County AA were at the celebration tea which was attended by about 50 people.
Bill thanked those present with an amazingly lucid and fascinating address which included explaining how he came to join Belgrave in 1936.
In one of the two pictures taken by Mike Fleet, Belgrave chairman John Powell is presenting Bill with a commemoration vase and, in the other, Bill is surrounded by many of the athletes he managed during his period as Belgrave's cross country team manager. In the centre is a painting of him running in June 1952 at a meeting to mark the opening of the Wimbledon Park track. Profile.
