Welcome to Brett and Ryan Tuesday 22 April 2014

Brett Morse

Cardiff AAC is delighted to welcome leading British throwers Brett Morse and Ryan Spencer-Jones as members.

For Brett, who was brought up in Penarth, it is a home-coming of course as he joined Cardiff as a junior and was an important member of the Young Athletes League team. After spending a few years with premiership club Birchfeld Harriers, Brett has decided to re-join his home club and everyone is delighted to see him back.

Ryan is a Welsh Athletics Network officer and spends a great deal of his time helping Cardiff AAC with its future development. He has played a key role in the creation and launch of the Cardiff Athletics Academy and felt that it was a logical move to join the club as a competitor.
