I’m sorry to have to tell you that John Rogers died earlier today. John was involved in the club from the start in 1978 and has continued his involvement throughout the last 36 years. John has coached, mentored, and chaired the club as well as judging many hundreds of field events – and more recently enjoyed his role as Club President.
John’s enthusiasm and dedication to athletics remained undiminished and he will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him, both at the club and in the wider athletics community.
Our heartfelt condolences go to his wife Audrey, son Phil and Phil’s wife Katherine and the grandchildren Lucy and Harry.
