A HOCKEY coach from Scotforth will be among those carrying the Olympic torch through Lancaster on June 22.

Nick Davey, 32, was nominated by a colleague at BT on Caton Road for his work coaching the men’s, women’s and junior teams at Morecambe Hockey Club.

As a partner sponsor, BT was able to choose 10 employees from across the UK to carry Olympic torches through different locations.

Nick, a customer services adviser for BT website solutions, who lives with his partner Angie, said: “Many people do a lot of work at the hockey club and it will be nice to represent all of them.”

Eighteen people have been chosen to carry the Olympic torch through Lancaster.

They include four other people who live in or near the city – Doris Collins, 72, from Lancaster; Laura Johnson, 23, of Slyne; Paul Hattersley, 43, who lives in Morecambe, and Molly Newton O’Brien, 12, from Burton-in-Kendal.
