Dave McConnell is one of Lasswade AC’s most longstanding coaches and is well known throughout Scottish athletics as both a coach and official.
Prior to the coronavirus Dave was at training Mondays and Thursdays with his group and officiated most weekends at events up and down the country. Over the past year due to Dave’s own health and the coronavirus he has had to take a bit more care and was therefore unable to return to coaching.
I have found out today that Dave is currently in the Western General Hospital and is having to self isolate for a second time as one of the patients in his ward tested positive for Covid19.
All at Lasswade AC wish Dave a speedy recovery and hope to see him back at the track over the coming months.
