Peter Virgo

Berkshire Athletics is very sad to hear the news
that Peter Virgo has passed away.

As well as being a stalwart of WSEH AC, Peter was the immediate Past Chairman of Berkshire Athletics, and a post holder and Committee member for many years, who gave so much of his time promoting all disciplines of the sport throughout his life.

Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

News - Saturday, 11 October 2014


The summer has seen more Berkshire qualified athletes
winning national titles.

At the England U20/U23 Championships in June,
there were three Berkshire winners in the younger age group :
Shaun Wyllie [Bracknell AC] in the 1500m,
Taylor Campbell [WSEH AC] in the hammer,
and Amy Holder [Reading AC] in the discus.

Then at the England U15/17 Championships in August,
there were three more winners :
Jake Norris [WSEH AC] in the U17 hammer,
Elliott Thorne [SJAC] in the U15 long jump,
and Oliver Hewitt [TK] in the U15 hammer.

Finally, apologies to Rachel McClay [Bracknell AC]
for the late recognition of her winning performance
in the Welsh Indoor Championships over 800m
at the beginning of the year.

Congratulations to all those athletes for their truly stunning victories.
