Sadly we report the death of Roger McCall who died on 21st August 2016. He was taken ill and admitted to hospital recently with a suspected stroke but it was in fact a serious problem related to the cancer that he had. He did come home from hospital and was cared for by his wife, Rosemary.
Roger was heavily involved in NW athletics for many years, he was an ever present at competitions throughout the north and his friendly smile was familiar to many. Roger had been a member of St Helens Sutton for over 40 years and although it was 20 mile drive to club training that didn’t stop him being a regular at training nights and acting a mentor to up and coming coaches and officials.
He also advised the local leagues on optimising their competitions to make them more efficient and enjoyable. Roger contributed so much to athletics and anyone who had the pleasure of working along side him would agree.
7th September at 2 pm at St Mary Magdalene church, Moss Lane, Ashton-on-Mersey
