Rob's Retirement

Inspire Blog |

With a mixture of celebration and sadness, we wish Rob Allison a wonderful retirement.

Rob has worked with us for over 20 years and will be sorely missed by all his friends here at Lincs Inspire.

After beginning his working life with British Gas, Rob’s passion for sport saw him, in the late nineties, turn his hobby into a second career. He started working at King George V Stadium with an interest in track and field; working with young people and seeing them thrive in sports. 

For a period after, Rob worked in school sports development at Hereford School (Ormiston Academy) and then in community sports development working at Freeman Street Resource Centre, still working and encouraging young people in sport. At the time Rob always spoke of his desire to work with young people from “playground to podium”.

I would just like to say a huge thank you to all my friends at Lincs Inspire and all the other partners and organisations that have made my job such a pleasure. I can honestly say we have the best team anywhere. I have made so many friends over the years and have enjoyed every day of it. Once again thank you everyone, it's been a blast x


In recent years, and with Lincs Inspire, Rob has been at the forefront of developing grass roots football in the area at Bradley Football Development Centre, improving sport provision in schools including a huge programme of Bikeability, along with developing leisure services for local people with a focus on supporting our active seniors in the community.

He leaves a wonderful legacy and has supported many of our colleagues in their careers.

A Lincs Inspire legend. Have the best retirement, Rob.
