About Us

Scunthorpe and District Athletic Club was formed in 1996 from the amalgamation of three smaller clubs, namely Normanby Park A.C., Riddings A.C., and Scunthorpe Harriers. It was quite an achievement to bring about the amalgamation, which had been fiercely resisted by each club, and took nearly two years of discussions to bring to fruition.

 

Normanby Park A.C. was originally a part of the Normanby Park steelworks athletic club and trained at Foxhills playing fields at the north end of Scunthorpe.

 

Riddings A.C. originated at Riddings Youth Centre on Willoughby Road and had a large road running membership.

 

Scunthorpe Harriers trained at Quibell and had a long history, originally being called Scunthorpe Polytechnic.

 

Scunthorpe and District A.C. was formed to provide a better facility for all athletes in the town, allowing them to train and compete together to increase the opportunity to compete in higher leagues and for individuals to meet their potential.

 

Today the aim is still to provide an environment where through personal effort, training and competition, every member of the club will have the opportunity to maximise their potential.
