Sad announcement from Dudley Walker Lead Coach Junior Endurance
“It is with enormous sadness that I have to advise everyone of the passing of Richie Allan.
Richie was with the club in the late 1990s and early 2000s.A tremendous talent who in one of his first races finished 4th at the Scottish Schools XC Champs.In fact I think he had a Scottish vest before he had a club one!A lovely cheery boy with a wonderful smile and a brilliant sense of humour.
I tell the story of Richie’s first race for the club at Scotstoun.he was running in the 1500m.It taught me a lesson I’ll always remember…..don’t assume anything.As he passed me at the end of the first lap he shouted…. “hey big man how many more laps to go?”
Richie’s mum Katie was very supportive to Richie and his brother Danny during their time with the club…..our thoughts are with her and her family at this very difficult time”
Dudley has also provided details of the Funeral arrangements for Richie . It will take place on Wednesday the 17th April at Craigton Crematorium at 3.30pm
