Not only is she a fantastic chairperson she’s also a brilliant coach. She’s done wonders for our academy as well as leading her own successful jumps group.

Nicky Purse one of our academy coaches nominated Tracey – Nicky said “I’ve been volunteering with Tracey for a number of years now and I just wanted her to know how much we all appreciate and recognise all her hard work. I’m so happy that she won – it’s a true testament to what she’s achieved and her dedication to the athletes and Southampton Athletic Club”
