Want to know more about our new Club Chair?

Willie Sutherland took the time recently to answer a few questions to help us get to know him a little better

  1. Name Willie Sutherland

 

  1. Current role(s) at Whitemoss AAC Endurance Coach, Field Official, Committee Member and Chair of Trustees

 

  1. History with Whitemoss AAC When my younger daughter joined Whitemoss AAC in 2007 I volunteered as a parent helper. I then became a coach and official and eventually more involved with the organisation of the club.

 

  1. Favourite sportsperson Andy Murray because of his attitude to sport. When he loses he does not blame the equipment, the officials or the weather. He says to himself 'what do I have to do to improve my game and compete with the top players?'
