We are deeply saddened to report the death today (Monday) of Hudson Stoker of Morpeth Harriers. Hud will be well known to many of you as the long-serving announcer at many Northern Athletics Endurance Championships over the past decade.  In the North East Hudson was an ever present figure alongside his close friend George Patterson. Hud was a quiet but perceptive and intelligent man who was dedicated to Morpeth Harriers and athletics in the North East and he will be very much missed by all who were lucky enough to know him.
