Phil Spratt 1934 – 2018

Northern Masters is deeply saddened to report the death of Phil Spratt, one or our long serving committee member.

Phil was known throughout the North for his enthusiasm for Athletics. Those who came across him will remember him for his kind words, a big smile and was always there to tell you stories of the past

Our thoughts are with Phil family as he will truly be missed.

The funeral is to be held on Thursday 1st Feb at 3:20pm at Thornton Crematorium, Sefton for anyone wishing to attend.
