Angus in the News!

Angus hit the headlines this week with news of his Australian 5000m record making the Messenger, front page of Wednesday's Advertiser and a guest slot on Nova 919.  Read his story here.

There's an exciting future ahead, with Paralympic qualification and world records in his sights.

We wish you well for this Friday's SA Sports Awards Angus :)

Knox Park Update

Things are slowly moving forwards.  Clr Heather Merritt will be tabling a motion at the Council meeting on Tuesday 21 November aimed at securing permission for Southern Athletic Club to use Knox Park as our new training base.

We expect Council to vote in favour of he motion but there will still be some administrative hurdles to get over before formal permission can be granted.  With a fair wind, we hope to get permission to use Knox Park by February, ready to apply for state government grants that open around that time.

If you are interested in hearing proceedings first hand, the Council meeting starts at 7:00 pm and they should get to the motions around 9:00 pm.  Wear your Sharks shirt.
