Name: Alan Poskitt
long & successful career
in the Motor Industry stretching over 29 years supplying the Motor Trade with Parts for just about every type of car
& van manufactured, starting from the shop floor & working up to owning my own Parts Supplier covering Doncaster, Retford
& the surrounding areas. I later moved back working for Major International
Company as Branch Manager with responsibility for
the Huddersfield Branch before gaining total responsibility for two Branches, one in Halifax the other in Bradford with a joint
annual turnover in excess of £1.5 million, this finally came to an end in 2003 when through
serious illness which lead to disability I had no option but to retire early,
volunteering for the Club now means everything to me.

Unfortunately due to health problems I'm unable to attend as many Galas
at Retford or on the road to watch everyone compete as I used to do or able to help out as
often as I used to
but if there I still try to enjoy them.
Best recent memories:
1) Gala Win at Newark when the Team took 1st place & Won the
Sports Centre League with Promotion to
the Top Division for 2012.
2) Sports Centre League Gala at Worksop when
the Team again took 1st place, winning the first Gala of the New Season,
surprising some of the Top Teams in Nottinghamshire.
Interests outside Club
enjoy spending time with
Julie, Matt, Dave & Keri at the Coast or in the Country & escaping to some of our favourite areas throughout England & Scotland watching the various types of wildlife, I especially enjoyed watching them enjoy the many rides & thrills at Alton Towers. I have a passion for
Boats, Water & the Sea; I like watching Football (Doncaster Rovers: Season
Ticket Holder, Manchester United & Sheffield Wednesday) & Motor Sport (F1, Rallying plus the Isle of Man TT) plus Computers,
Websites & Internet.
