During the next few weeks Wallasey A.C. runners main activity will be centred on preparations for the coming track season.
An ambitious programme of club events has been arranged and a general meeting of the club will be held to discuss these and track matters generally at Club H.Q., on Thursday, at 7:30 p.m.
Track athletes are reminded of the importance of an early start to their training and it is perhaps worthy of mention that during the really cold weather in January, this columnist observed three track suited discus throwers having quite a work out on Waterloo foreshore. This of course is the right sprit, as with the standards prevailing today, any aspiring athlete should never really be out of training. Wallasey's international long jumper, Len Platt, for instance, has been in light training all winter, during which time he has been receiving advice and coaching from A.A.A. coach Denis Watts. The various club events will be held on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer and the help of old members or friends of the club in time recording, judging etc., would be most appreciated. Wallasey A.C. women's section would welcome new members, especially those interested in sprinting, jumping, or throwing and they should contact secretary Jean Massey, 200 Seaview Road (phone 6455) or captain Margaret Collings, 60 Withens Lane, (phone 2864).
