Tchoukball UK's Board of Directors unanimously approved a restructure at the top level this weekend. With outgoing Communications Director Andrew St Ledger leaving, the Board decided it was a good time to review the structure needed to deliver real value to players and stakeholders.
After reviewing the work of the last 3 years, Chief Executive Philip Moore proposed that no replacement Communications Director would be appointed at Board level and that Ian Parker (pictured) would be officially appointed Head of Communications for Tchoukball UK after months of hard work in that area, working with Operations Director, Richard Jackson.
In a day of top of the table action Headingley Outlaws jumped to the top of Division One, beating the early pace setters Bury Saints in round two of the Tchoukball UK National League. Both divisions saw top of the table clashes with Headingley beating Bury Saints and Bury Kings defeating Southampton Stags in the Super League.
Headingley played both of the Bury sides in the first division, first seeing off the Suffolk club’s resolute youth team, Bury Wolves.
Andrew St Ledger, Communications Director for Tchoukball UK has announced his resignation from the Board. Andrew leaves Tchoukball UK after 12 years of service at the top level. Citing increasing professional demands on his time, Andrew wrote to the Board last month.
The competition was organised by the University of Portsmouth Dance Club, as a charity event to support St Barnabas House Hospice.
Taking place each year it was the second time tchoukball had entered.
