The Charles Stuart T&F Meeting


Athletics meeting to be held in memory of a local Coach

Following the passing of athletic coach, Charles Stuart, a track and field meeting will be held at the end of March at Middlesbrough Sports Village.


Middlesbrough AC (Mandale) is hosting a Track & Field meeting for its club members in the memory of Charles who died last year following a short illness.

Charles was a long established coach, official and chairman of the club. He officiated throughout the North East and was a highly regarded Timekeeper. Such is the respect afforded to Charles that many officials have volunteered to support this inaugural meeting to be held on Sunday March 25.


In addition to the track meeting, Charles’ wife Chris, and the family will be unveiling a plaque to commemorate his life in athletics. The family will be joined by many of his former athletes and club members, both past and present who will all be in attendance to honour the significant contribution that Charles made to athletics over the last 40 years.

Charles Stuart Memorial Meeting

If you have not already done so, there is still time to enter the Charles Stuart Memorial meeting at MSV.

You may have been aware of Charles coaching at the track and timekeeping at events but the remarkable man also did many other things for athletics both locally and regionally.

These included:

  • Plans for an Indoor track at Clairville.
  • He drew up plans but with the new MSV but these were never implemented.
  • At MSV he got the grandstand extended so that Photofinish equipment could be installed.
  • The finish line posts were constructed by Charles, you probably noticed these as you crossed them after winning your event or setting another PB.

In addition to these local issues, he also

  • Carried out timekeeping at local, national and international fixtures.
  • Represented North East timekeeping at national events,
  • Provided a Physiotherapy service for Cleveland Schools athletics at the ESAA finals.
  • Chaired the club for several years pushing for better facilities for all athletes.
  • Arranged meetings with National events to get management meetings at MSV.

Along with his wife Chris he:

  • Managed international squads at
  • Took teams to the top division of the UKA Womens League.
  • Arranged his holidays so that he would not miss important competitions for his athletes.

Please send in your entry for the Charles Stuart Memorial   meeting on Sunday 25th March as soon as possible. Forms can be downloaded from the club website.

We are here on that day to celebrate a special man who did so much for athletics on Teesside and the North East.

Well done to all club athletes who took part this cross country season
sometimes in the most difficult of conditions.

NYSD Meeting at South Park, Darlington on Sunday 11th March


Attached are the details for the NYSD Meeting at South Park, Darlington
on Sunday 11th March. Hopefully the snow will have disappeared by then.

The league presentations will also take place at this meeting.



Sid Rudd (NYSD XC sec)

URGENT Fantastic 4 this Sunday is cancelled.

Macmillan Academy is currently closed and likely to remain so tomorrow
and over the weekend.. In light of the issue of hazardous carparks and
footpaths, and generally the state of minor roads, it would be sensible
to make the cancellation decision early.

As I am organising the Charles Stuart meeting in March, there is a
possibility that the competition might go ahead in April, depending on
facility availability.


To all Coaches and athletes: Charles Stuart Meeting

Please send in your entries to the above meeting. You have just over 2
weeks as there are no online entries and none taken after 16th March.
