Announcement from Peter Bristowe, ACCF Chairman
On behalf of the trustees, I am delighted to announce that Tim Shutt, following a comprehensive selection process, has accepted the role of Director of the Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation.
Tim was Head of Cricket Development at the Sussex Cricket Board and Managing Director of the Sussex Cricket Foundation before moving into a series of consultancy roles advising and supporting the ECB, Chelsea Football Club Foundation, Gloucestershire Cricket Club and others on a range of community engagement initiatives. Tim has the skills, experiences and qualities necessary to carry on the outstanding work of the Foundation.
The board wishes to place on record its gratitude to John Barclay. John has led the Foundation for over 32 years providing the inspiration and passion that has allowed thousands of children over the years to benefit from all that a visit to Arundel offers. We are thrilled that John has accepted the role of Vice President and will continue to provide guidance and support in the future.
John will gradually handover responsibilities to Tim towards the end of the year with the full transition being completed by early 2020.
