Last night we said au revoir to Richard; a county and regional swimmer himself "back in the day" who brought his passion for swimming to Orpington Ojays in 2009 and has since then coached most of the competitive squads before becoming joint head coach with Sergio late last year.
His detail to technique and discipline has gained him success with county, regional and national swimmers and of course as Billy's coach, helping him to achieve so highly in his competitions.
It is testament to his popularity that on Saturday evening over 30 swimmers turned up to give him an Ojays send off meal at Hotel 7 Diner.
He has asked me to say thank you so much to everyone for the messages in his card and for the gifts and to say that he is quite overwhelmed by everyone’s kindness and generosity.
Good luck Richard in your future endeavours and thank you so much for all you have done for our swimmers and our club.
