Sharon and Nicole

The Disability Group bade an emotional farewell to two of their coaches on Wednesday last.   Sharon and Nicole Waters who have been with the group since it was formed two years ago said their goodbyes to the athletes.

Sharon’s working hours have recently changed and she could no longer make it to Scotstoun in time for the session.   Since joining the club she has made a success of coaching and has been a valuable member of the committee.

Nicole has been a competing member since 2008 where she has successfully represented the club at cross country and throws.  She was always a willing competitor, taking part in events which might not have been her choosing, but always with a smile on her face.

They were very highly regarded by the disability group who showered them with gifts of flowers and chocolates at the end of their last session.

We hope that Sharon and Nicole can return to the club at some point in the future.  They'll be greatly missed.

 

We are as always on the lookout for volunteers, if you or anyone you know would like to be involved with coaching the disability group, let Gordon or Theresa know.  Experience isn't required and full training will be provided.
