CONGRATULATIONS are in order for North Somerset Athletic Club’s head coach Chris Millard, who has won a prestigious coaching award.

He was selected by the South West Regional Council as the winner of the 2013 Development Coach of the Year award for the South West, as part of the England Athletics National Awards and Hall of Fame programme.

The recognition from England Athletics is long overdue and for all Chris’s achievements with North Somerset Athletics Club and academy.

The club, which Chris started in 2004 with four athletes, now spans the county at seven venues and 15 training events a week. The club now has over 600 members and successfully competes in regional and national leagues.

Chris will receive his award at a ceremony at the Mercure Hotel, Exeter, on December 5. CEO of England Athletics, Chris Jones, will be attending the evening to present awards to the winners.
