Sheena Scott


It is with great sadness we have to report that Sheena Scott the mum of a former athlete of Bill Walker, John Scott at the old EAC has sadly passed away.

Sheena Scott used to do declarations at events and his dad was an official. This is a notice to anyone from the old club that knew her.

The funeral will be held in Edinburgh on  Friday 4th November 2016 at Warriston Crematorium Lorimer Chapel at 11am

 Notice will be in Scotsman on Monday.

    I’m very sorry to hear this; I well recall Sheena at the declarations desk-she was always super-efficient and unflappable; whilst always processing each athlete fairly in the same consistent way, I always sensed her warmth and support for me, particularly at high profile championships and internationals. These occasions were always intense moments, just before competition and hearing her address me by my first name, in her kindly way, was always somehow a calming thing before going out to race. Please pass on my best to Brian and John who I haven’t seen for many decades. Along with her husband, Angus, they made a great voluntary contribution to athletics, young people’s lives as well as the club. Grateful to have known them both.
