"May I introduce myself, I am your President for 2014/15 season. My name is Pat Taylor and I have worked as an associate member of Nuneaton Harriers over 30 years and also for much of this time with the Birmingham League.

Once work commitments allowed I became a graded official in 1997 as a Starter/Marksman a useful skill when lining up Cross Country starts of any age group.

As an endurance official I always enjoy seeing the enthusiasm and dedication of the athletes. I will visit and encourage athletes,officials and officers of all Leagues during my year in office.

Best of luck to you all and look forward to meeting you."
