EAST WALES TEAM MANAGEMENT UPDATE - 12 Sept 2019

Cross Country, Road, Trail & Fell Running

PLEASE NOTE THE BELOW REFERS TO SENIORS ONLY.
JUNIOR TEAM MANAGEMENT AND SELECTION RESPONSIBILITY REMAINS WITH DARRYN MCATEE.

Firstly, many thanks to Jeanette Jenkins and Dick Finch for working behind the scenes and presenting the following new structure to the EWRAC at yesterdays meeting for ratification.

CROSS COUNTRY:

Faye Johnson has decided to relinquish her role as East Wales Cross Country Women Team Manager. East Wales would like to thank Faye for her Team Management last year which proved very successful with our Women teams winning most age categories at the Welsh XC Inter Regions.

Following a review of the current structure it has been decided that there will not be a direct Womens Team Manager replacement.
Damian Williams, the current Mens Team Manager will now become Team Manager for both Women and Men.
This role will be responsible for team communication and administration including race entries and registration. The role will also include team selection.

To support this role, we have introduced Team Selectors and are delighted to announce that Sandra Chipper (Lliswerry) will become East Wales XC Womens Selector and James Blore (Chepstow Harriers) will become the East Wales XC Mens Selector. We wish them both every success with their new roles.

If any East Wales Athlete has any aspirations of competing for East Wales and would like to be considered, please contact either Sandra, James or Damian. Likewise if any Club would like to nominate any of their athletes, please make contact.

ROAD:

For any future Inter Regional or similar selected Road Races, the Team Manager and Selectors will be Lou Summers (Torfaen) for Women and James Blore for Men. We wish them both every success with their new roles.

TRAIL & FELL:

For Trail and Fell events the Team Manager and Selector will be Lou Summers for Women and Andrew Dickens (Torfaen) for Men. We wish Andy and Lou success in these disciplines.

Good luck to all our athletes for the forthcoming Cross Country campaign and any other Winter competitions, its exciting times for our Region!
