JOHN COLLINS

 

Many of you will have heard the sad news of the passing of our very own John Collins.

John was a legend.

His contribution to athletics in our area and far beyond has been enormous for well over sixty years and he will be sadly missed by everyone connected with the West Glamorgan League.

As an athlete, administrator, official or supporter, John always gave 100%, but what set him apart from most was his undiluted, infectious love of our sport

From local school athletics to dealing with athletes at the highest level, John made no difference in how he treated anyone.

Help. Support. Friendship. Respect. Sportsmanship. These are the things John offered to the people he dealt with, always delivered in his own polite, courteous manner. He always looked for and saw the best in people.

As a competitor he competed fiercely in the West Glamorgan League over many decades, before finally refereeing at matches when illness prevented him from running.

Our sport has lost a true gentlemen.From local school athletics to dealing with athletes at the highest level, John made no difference in how he treated anyone.

Our sport has lost a true gentleman.
