Current Junior Team Manager Allan Johnstone (AJ) will require an assistant come the Track & Field season as the Lincs League rules do not permit him to Officiate at meetings & be Team Manager at the same time. Louth AC will be obliged to provide 3 officials/helpers, a track judge & someone to assist with the putting out & removing of the hurdles.

I would like to thank Paul Elliott for his services as Treasurer over the last 18mths. Unfortunately he has resigned the post so if anyone feels they can step up & help please speak to John or Sue.


Diary Dates:-

20th Aug Clean-up day, 9am onwards, at London Road. Please come along & lend a hand at tidying up our ground. Jobs to be done include pothole filling, strimming, mowing & litter picking. All of these things need doing even though the running track is to be installed so please do come & give an hour or two of your time.
