Kilcock’s King Becomes President

Legendary Kilcock athlete Bobby King was announced as president of St Cocas AC Kilcock at their annual AGM, which was held on Friday 15th November last.

A special motion was unanimously passed to nominate King as Club President in recognition of his long and highly decorated career in Athletics and as a founding member of the club some 40 years ago.

Also on the night, a new management committee was elected, chaired by Larry Kelly. We here at Extra Time Sport would like to wish the new committee every success for the coming year and look forward to keeping up our great relationship.
