Recently, one of our Hall of Fame inductees Derek Sangster has announced his decision to take a step back from coaching.
Fellow coach and Hall of Fame inductee Moira Taylor paid tribute to Derek:
''On behalf of Scottish Archery and the Coaching workforce I should like to thank you for all the years you have contributed to the development and success of coaching in Scotland. You have gladly offered to Coaches both experienced and those new to coaching your wise words, support and experience. You and I have coached together on many occasions and I will miss working with you.
I know that Scottish Archery will be very sad to lose your expertise and input however after 30 years as a County Coach I think you deserve to bring your coaching involvement to a close and have a rest!
Thank you for updating us on your situation and I know that all Coaches and members of Scottish Archery wish you well for the future.''
Derek was the first inductee into the Scottish Archery Hall of Fame in 2013 and we would again like to extend our thanks to Derek for his service and dedication to archery in Scotland. You can read his full story as part of his induction here.
