Saracen Yates, the 17-year-old son of Alan John Yates who died in a road accident in 2007, bravely fought back tears as he accepted an award in memory of his late farther.  Saracen was accompanied by his 7-year-old sister Phoenix and Grandparents Jill and David Yates for the presentation of a posthumous 3rd Dan Black Belt from U.B.S.K. Norton Radstock Shotokan Karate Club.  

Alan was 31 when he died after being seriously injured in a multi-vehicle collision in Codford in June 2007.  Before his untimely death he was a dedicated student of the Club, having first joined as a young boy.  Chief instructor Wayne Teall 5th Dan, who has been teaching Karate to children and adults for the past 43 years, invited the family to a special presentation evening held at Prattens Sports and Social Club.


Wayne Teall said "Alan was very important to all of us at the club he joined as a young boy and carried on training as he grew up.  He was not a natural but his dedication meant he would always make the grade and he had the spirit to keep training no matter what.  He truly earned my honour and respect."


Alan's mother Mrs Jill Yates was presented with a framed Photograph of her son wearing his Karate GI, while his father was made an honorary Shodan 1st Dan Black Belt to acknowledge his own commitment to the club.


The Club further honoured Alan with the creation of the 'Alan Yates Memorial Shield' which was awarded to Philip Barson.
