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.
