(14) MICHAEL NUGENT 1935 - 2020

It is with regret that we have learnt that, following a short illness, Michael Nugent died peacefully at his home in New York on 4th August 2020. Michael was one of many pupils from John Fisher School who excelled at the Pole Vault in the 1950s. After John Fisher he went to Cambridge University and won an athletics blue.
Although our records for the 1950s are incomplete they do show Michael winning the County Pole Vault title twice as a Youth; once as a Junior and three times as a Senior. In 1955 he won the Senior Boys Pole Vault at the English Schools Championships. Michael represented Great Britain at the International Student Games at Paris in 1957 where he finished =11th with a clearance of 3.35m.

(19) NICK MORGAN 1938 - 2020

It is with regret that we have learnt that, Nick Morgan died on 1st November 2020. Nick was an international shot putter and represented England at the Cardiff British Empire and Commonwealth Games in 1958. His family home was less than half a mile from Croydon Sports Arena where he joined Croydon Harriers and trained assiduously in the adjacent "gym". He was ideally built for shot putting and gained a nickname with the club of "Mighty Mouse". His best performance of 16.95m was set in Paris in 1961. In his post-competitive life he moved to Devon where he worked to improve sports facilities. In recent years he moved back to the Croydon area and despite being wheelchair bound he proved to be inspirational to Croydon Harriers throwers he met on visits to Croydon Arena.

(20) MARIANNE GOLDIE 1936 - 2020

We regret to report that, following a few months of illness, Marianne Goldie has died. Marianne regularly attended Surrey fixtures as a stalwart Field Official for many years. She lived all her life in or around Wallington, Surrey. Her love of athletics was nurtured by her father Cyril Aldridge who we think was a local club runner; we believe Marianne too was a club athlete as a teenager. In any case they would both often be found at the White City participating or cheering.
Marianne qualified as a Field judge in the early 1980s and enjoyed judging at club, County and regional level and particularly at Schools athletics events.
She was for many years a member of the Governing body of St Philomena's Catholic High School for Girls, in Carshalton, and was also on the school's Old Girls Association Committee.
Her health declined in the last decade and she leaves four children and two adult grandchildren.
