It is with deep regret that I have to announce the sudden death
of Chris Leggatt who died on 23/9/12 whilst refereeing a junior
Chris joined the club in 1961 after a knock on the front door by
He was a member of the team in the 60's and 70's that dominated
road relay and cross country races. He was a key member of
the team that won 4 National Championship medals, a highlight in
Chris's running career as a Youth and junior.
Chris was a member of Sale Harriers until 1979.
He moved to Yorkshire to start a new challenge with his wife Sue
but always remained a life long Sale Harrier.
Chris became involved at Pool AFC after winning the fell race at
the first village Gala in the early 1980's and offered to organise
subsequent races which he did for several years.
He looked after the junior section of the football club eventually
becoming a referee.
On behalf of Sale Harriers I wish to pass on our sincere
condolences to Chris's wife Sue and children Karen, Andrea, Duncan
