A J TAYLOR AWARD
CLIFF ROYLE TROPHY
After taking into account the suggestions and feelings of our fellow committee members I am pleased to announce the winners of the above awards.
A J Taylor Award Winner: Andrea Lennon.
Andrea has been a regular at nearly all of our fixtures and has performed so well in Age related events that we feel her performances merit recognition at our club’s highest level.
Cliff Royle Trophy Winner: Guy Goodair.
Guy is now in his 80’s and is still producing some fine times over a variety of distances. His age related performances in both the club virtual races and the world virtual series have been of the highest order and this over half century after winning the Manchester to Blackpool Walk. Despite advancing years he has continued to display an exemplary style.
[ I’m not sure how many people know of Guy and Judith Goodair’s exploits in the world of orienteering. Both hold a string of medals at a national, European and World level.]
