F&C AC Christmas Handicap run - Sunday December 18th
Dec 5, 2016, 3:04 pm

All Juniors (and Mums/Dads/siblings) and Seniors welcome. Arrive at the club for 9.45/10.00 for an approx. 10.30am start - handicap run is off-road across 1.5 miles. If you have not done this event before and intend to run please let the coaches know so we can work out a handicap time for you. Those who have done it before, we will have your handicap time from last year.

All runners are encouraged to wear Christmas jumpers/santa hats/tinsel/reindeer horns - whatever you like really as long as it is Christmassy!
The run will be followed back at the club hut by hot drinks (tea/coffee/chocolate), mulled wine, soft drinks, cakes and nibbles - any donations would be very welcome - we will be buying some goodies. 
All runners should bring a wrapped gift (value c. £2) suitable for both a junior or senior (no alcohol please!). If your gift is just for a female or just for a male please indicate on the label. Runners can select a gift from the table based on their finish position. Gifts are only for the runners and all runners must bring one if they want to receive one.
Please come along if you can - it is a great opportunity for a social get together before the Christmas rush.


Club AGM - Friday 11th November 6:30 pm for prompt 7:00 pm start
Nov 10, 2016, 9:33 am

All club members are invited to attend our Annual General Meeting to be held on Friday 11th November in the Oak Hall, Crookham Park Community Centre at 6:30 for a prompt 7:00 pm start. Awards will be presented following the formal part of the evening. Refreshments will be provided but we would be very grateful to anyone willing to bring cakes along! 

Referring to Map the hall may be found by taking the Naishes Lane turn-off the non-Sainsbury's roundabout in Sandy Lane signposted 'Oaklands' or the Leipzig Rd. turn-off from the new roundabout in Beacon Hill Rd. 

Follow Naishes Lane, which bears right to become 'Jubilee Drive'. Take the 2nd right turn into Boyce Road as you start to go down the hill. The Hall will be on the right as you reach the end of the road. Warning - postal codes are not reliable in this area!

Following the tragic deaths of Lucy Pygott and Stacey Burrows this evenings track session is cancelled.

We are deeply saddened by the tragic news of the death teenage athletes Lucy Pygott and Stacey Burrows, after being struck by a car at Queen's Avenue in Aldershot.

Our heartfelt condolences to the families and friends envolved. May the love of family and friends comfort you during these difficult days.

Previosly posted on front page on 9th / 10th November

At the AGM tomorrow evening we will be taking a few moments to reflect on the loss of Lucy Pygott and Stacey Burrows in the incident in Aldershot on Tuesday night. As many of you will be aware, Lucy was a much loved member of F&C AC between the age of 8 and 15, when she moved across to AFD in 2014 to follow her dreams. In the last couple of years she has shown her natural running talent in so many ways, winning many area, national and also international titles - she was this year’s England under-20 3000m champion and European Youth Championships bronze medallist.
After she moved to AFD, Lucy and her Mum would always still come over at events to see Evelyn and the other coaches/athletes from F&C AC to see how we were all doing - I saw them both at the recent Winchester Hants Cross Country League - Lucy won the event that day.
Last night several of the club's trustees and some of the junior coaches/juniors went across to Aldershot to lay some flowers on behalf of F&C AC. It was very moving for those of us who attended and our thoughts are with the families and friends of both of the girls.   -- Penny Abbott

Lucy Pigott @ Border League, Feb 2013Some social media comments from coaches:

Stacey Marshall: Lucy was an a fantastic athlete,  always keen to train, listened, reacted and gave her best.  A lovely person, of whom we remain proud.

Evelyn Farrell: Our hearts go out to The Pygott family at this time. Lucy joined Fleet and Crookham AC as an U9 and trained with us until 2014 when she moved to AFD. She was a fantastic athlete and a lovely person.

Louise Apsey: Such a talented girl, such a terrible loss, my thoughts are with her family and friends.

Ben O'Connor: It is the worst possible news. It is a mark of the warmth and respect the club felt for Lucy that her ex-club mates continued to cheer her on in races after she went to AFD. I am deeply privileged to have been involved in her coaching for a short while. She was a lovely person.
