Stockport Harriers & AC – Dash AC Merger EGM

10th Mar 2014

At the EGM on Tuesday 18th February the Merger of Stockport Harriers & AC with Dash AC was approved by 42 votes For to 5 votes Against. A major concession by Dash AC prior to the EGM was that the Club name would remain Stockport Harriers & AC and the competition kit will not change.

This merger will be of major benefit to the Club's junior track and field sections by introducing more comprehensive coaching capabilities and enhancing the teams that compete in the Youth Development and Cheshire Track & Field Leagues. There will also be a much wider range of athletes available to the team competing in the North Of England Track & Field League.

Over the next few years it is expected that all the track and field teams will gain promotion through the divisions and will provide Club athletes with competition opportunities at the highest level in the Region.

Coupled with the established cross country, middle distance and road running sections this will make Stockport Harriers a very well respected Club nationally.

Membership of the Club will increase by approximately 200 to an overall 750.

The number of athletes training at the Woodbank Park facility on Tuesday and Thursday evenings is not expected to increase significantly though there may be a few extra athletes there most nights. There will be opportunities for some athletes to change training groups but this will not be imposed on anyone.

Please make every effort to make all the new members of Stockport Harriers feel welcome.
