I am therefore recommending him for a Commission.”

“Rod Morgan is an extremely intelligent officer who I could best describe as the backbone of our team. An excellent Advanced Crime Car Driver he has been involved in some first class arrests and I have always been impressed with the professional way he has dealt with them.
Well liked by his colleagues he will always offer help and guidance, particularly to younger officers.”
D Bradburn, Inspector
“Rod Morgan is a good thief taker who can be relied upon to relentlessly follow a case through to a successful conclusion. He is a good judge of character and a good interrogator. Recently the subject of a DAC Commendation report for disarming a man with a knife, he is an impressive Policeman who tackles well any task he is given.”
Roy Wilkinson, Inspector
“When called to this incident you were faced with a violent man who had assaulted his wife and armed himself with an axe. Your prompt and brave actions prevented any further injury.
I associate myself fully with the complimentary remarks of the trial judge and have much pleasure in commending you for your courage and determination.”
R Innes QPM, Deputy Assistant Commissioner
PROFESSIONAL TENNIS COACH
“I have enjoyed every minute of Rod’s coaching.
In a relatively short time he has improved my game enormously.
He is particularly good at diagnosing flaws and faults and correcting them.
He has great patience, a genuine desire for people to improve and an infectious enthusiasm.
He obviously has a deep knowledge of the game: his lessons with me have covered not only technique but also tactics and psychology.
I have had experience of a number of coaches but Rod is by far the best."
Revd Ian Brothwood
“Rod Morgan has coached my daughter Catherine since she was 11 years old. At the age of 15 she and her partner, then also aged 15, won the Women’s Doubles Championship at the club where we both play.
The following year she won the Women’s Singles title."
Christine J Risebro
“I have known Rod Morgan for the past 7 years. We first met when he was working for David Lloyd as our Racquets Manager.
He is very personable with excellent communication and leadership skills.
I recall that under his leadership his team secured a 100% score on our Mystery Member report. To my knowledge this is the only time that this has ever been achieved.”
Richard Dale, Sports Manager, David Lloyd Leisure, Eastbourne
