Spikes on track

Tribute on the Shettleston Harriers website

The athletics community in Scotland will be sad to hear of the passing of Robert Stephen.

Both Bob and Dora Stephen were involved in athletics for many years and indeed he was granted Honorary Life Membership of scottishathletics back in 1992.

Bob started as an athlete with Shettleston Harriers and was Scottish Triple Jump champion. In fact, he won the Scottish title in that event in 1952, 1953 and 1955.

He then moved into coaching and officiating. He was Chief Judge at the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh in 1986 and later became very involved with the Glasgow Marathon.

Sadly he passed away last weekend and we send our condolences to all the Stephen family and friends across the sport.

Funeral details are as follows:

Wednesday 28 February

Daldowie Crematorium, Broom House, 17 Hamilton Rd, Uddingston G71 7RU at 2pm.
