The club mourns the passing of life member and long-time supporter Alan Glover on 27 February.

Alan originally registered as an official with the Waverley Women's Athletics club in 1990. He was a member of the committee of that club from 1993 until 1997 at which time he became a committee member of the merged athletics club Athletics Waverley. He remained a committee member for the next 16 years and continued to serve until his death. He served as the club's delegate to the regional summer competition committe from 2004 and represented the club at Athletic Victoria's annual AGMs.
In 2005 he was awarded life membership of the club.
In 2011 the club nominated Alan for an Athletics Victoria Merit Award, which he was granted. In support of that application we noted: "[in addition to his official roles] he has been a tireless attendee at, and supporter of, club events and functions - even internal club races will feature Alan with a stop watch in hand recording finishing times... Alan has been ... a very important part of the club's administration and culture - we have been very lucky to have his involvement and support".
In 2013 Alan was recognised under the Officials Rewards Program as one of the 10 officials who had made the greatest contribution to athletics in Victoria over the preceding 12 months.

We thank Alan for his contribution to the club and its members and pass on our condolences to Yvonne.
