RIP Bob Corbett

It is with sadness that we have learned of the death of Bob Corbett.

He joined our club shortly after Essex Ladies merged with Woodford Green AC. and became an Associate Member. Over the years he produced some very successful athletes notably his daughter Kirsty, Hannah Frankson, Holly Patti-Belleli and Chloe Galloway. A few years ago he decided to become an independent coach and moved his training base to the Lea Valley Centre, also participating in event workshops. He still kept close ties with WG and EL and will be greatly missed.

Bob was a devoted family man with a passion for our sport, and our sympathies are with his wife Angie and family at this difficult time.
