Eric has spend a long time in the sport. His roles as coach have ranged from team to event-specific coaching positions, with his time being shared between his local club Enfield & Haringey, the SEAA teams competing within UK and Europe, and his work (in his words) “with the mighty OUAC”. Over the years he has been involved in BAAB Coaching Education, lecturing and practical coaching to Levels 1, 2 and 3. He has also spent time as a “mentor” to coaches outside his club. He has been involved as a coach and director for 31 years at the Bournemouth Young Athletes Course. Finally he has recently been part of the coaching team for Active Sports Development, a programme set up to nature talented athletes. He was invited to join OUAC in the 1989/1990 season and is pleased to be able to say that he’s still popping down as and when! He has told us that he “very much enjoys meeting athletes, having a hand in their development and watching their progress no matter how large or small.” He says that “my highlight of the year is our annual trips to Portugal, which are always a pleasure to attend and offer a great opportunity for OUAC athletes to train and bond together before the season kicks off.”

Ian Marriott

Events: Throws and Pole Vault

Ian was hired as lead OUAC throws coach in 2012 and quickly demonstrated that, although he had been primarily been a decathlon coach in the past, he was perfectly capable of developing specialist skills in the throws events. For the two previous years the throws had been dominated by Cambridge but his commitment to building a strong squad led to much more even results at the 2013 Varsity Match.


Kevin O'Hara

Events: Discus and Hammer

Based at Radley AC, where he has coached his daughter Emma to 2nd place in the UK Junior Rankings, Kevin welcomed OUAC athletes into his group in 2012 and they soon welcomed his expert eye being applied to their throwing. In particular, his work with the male Discus throwers close to Varsity was credited for the surprise 1-2 won in that event on Varsity day while the breaking of the Hammer record in the Women’s 2nd team match demonstrated the strength in depth that the squad developed for that event under his tutelage.
