David Clarke has been appointed to the new role "following a rigorous interview and selection process", and will formally take up his position on April 12 after previous manager Gareth Andrew left to pursue another opportunity in December.
Many club members will know David from his position as 1st XI Cricket captain; he has been a member of the club since he was a junior, regularly coaches at the club and has also joined the recently formed Club Social Committee.
David has a degree in Sport Business Management from Leeds Beckett University, and has worked in a variety of roles including Customer Services, PCC transport management, Peterborough Regional College tutoring, Licensing Operations for Hunts DC, and most recently working for Travelex in their Money Bureau operations as a business analyst. He has also set up and runs his own E-commerce business. As well as his current Cricket captaincy, he is a L2 qualified cricket coach and has safeguarding qualifications.
David demonstrated a tremendous passion for the Sports Club and a keen desire to ensure we are able to maximise the use of our wonderful facilities for the benefit of both members and the local community, whilst continuing to build on our sporting prowess.
Chairman of PTSC, Martin Collcott, said: “With this appointment we are confident that the future of the club is in good hands. We are looking forward to David working with both Management Council, club members and the local business community to drive the club onwards and build on the foundations laid over the past few years.
"In particular his experience of Digital Marketing and Social Media will help move us into the 21st century in many areas of our operations. We are very grateful for the continued support of our members and our NHS colleagues who use our facilities and have kept faith with us during the past difficult 12 months, and believe that as we come out of Covid-19 lockdown, this new chapter in our history will prove a good one for everyone connected with the club”.
