Neil Donachie

Everyone at EAC has been saddened to hear of the passing of Neil Donachie. He was a true athletics aficionado, with a passion and enthusiasm for athletics, both Track and Field and off road.  My earliest memories of Neil are as an administrator and Team Manager of EAC men, when they competed in the British Athletics League, and he remained hugely supportive of the club’s involvement in this higher-level competition pathway.

In my time as President Neil served on the committee and most recently was a member of the subgroup, which worked with Edinburgh leisure and scottishathletics to deliver the new Meadowbank. His advice and ideas were much appreciated.

They were a family with athletics in their blood and Neil and Marion were 2 of the most loyal officials a club could ever ask for.  Always available and willing to go the extra mile to ensure officials were well catered for at club, league, cross country, and road events.

Neil will be sorely missed and our thoughts are with Marion and the family.

Moira Maguire

President of EAC.
