15th Oct 07 - Head Coach Update

Head coach Roy Shepherdson's employment with Doncaster Council officially ends on Sunday, 4th November 2007. Andy Wallace will take over as temporary Head Coach from that date forward.

We all wish Roy well in his new post and thank him for all his hard work and efforts over the past two years.

We all now need to focus on taking the club forward towards the goal of being the leading short course training club in Yorkshire.

In the short term Andy will re-organise some of the groups, swimmers and training times in line with the current number of members and their required pool time. We have been very fortunate in having a fantastic response from many people who have offered to help DARTES during this transitional period and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them all.

Meetings are set up with the council, and we will endeavour to keep everybody informed of all events as we move forward. We will publish updates at least every fortnight by e-mail, notice boards and the website.

If anyone has any queries or questions, please feel free to ring Chris Hirst (Chairman) on 07714 668111 or Peter Litchfield (Secretary) on 07740 023087 anytime for any further information regarding the club or members.

Thank You.

The Committee.
