Crawley Athletics Club would like to recognise and thank two of their longest serving coaches who have made the decision to retire this year.
After over 30 years of service each, we say goodbye to Matt Quinn and Dave Parrott. Matt's middle distance group has produced countless champions at all levels of athletics.
Dave began his time at the club nurturing the beginners with Jim Boyce. He then joined forces with Matt and the success of their group continued to grow.
We'd like to thank them for all their hard work, the thousands of hours they've put in, their commitment, knowledge and success that they have brought to the club. Matt and Dave have been there in all weathers, all around the country and even abroad. Crawley AC won't be the same without them.
Joe sprints to new record; England Athletics U15 / U17 Championships, Bedford, Sat 29 - Sun 30 Aug 2015

Joe Massimo set a new U17M Club Record for 200m of 21.88 when finishing third in the England Athletics U17 Championships, held at Bedford; he beat his own record of 22.01 that he set in July when competing in the English Schools Championships.
Massimo's achievement is all the more laudable as he missed several months of training in the winter due to injury caused by uneven growth in bones and joints in his legs.
Also winning medals were Natasha Purchas with a clearance of 3.01m to finish second in the U15W Pole Vault and Lillie Franks who leapt 1.69m for joint third in the U17W high Jump.
Just missing podium places were Orla Brothers who finished fourth in the U17W 200m (25.04) and Tamsin Campbell who cleared 3.16m for fifth in the U17W Pole Vault.
