We are delighted to announce the appointment of Mitchell Young to the directorship of the Short Mat Players Tour. With our goal to produce more social media and online content for our events, Mitchell’s knowledge & expertise in this area makes him the ideal candidate to join our expanding team. With several years experience at the top level of Short Mat Bowls, and of course having participated in our previous events Mitchell shares the enthusiasm and understanding we have for the sport.
Mitchell enthuses “I am honoured to be given this opportunity to join the team and to continue the great work already achieved by the Short Mat Players Tour. I look forward to contributing some great ideas as we drive to push the sport forward.”
Having utilised Mitchell’s interviewing skills at some previous tournaments, we hope to incorporate more of this in our social media content for the forthcoming season.
Current SMPT Director Simon Pridham commented “We are absolutely thrilled and honoured that Mitchell has decided to join our team and we look forward to his valuable contributions in the lead up and during the forthcoming season, as well as beyond that. To be able to draw on a current World Champions’ experience is a great asset for us and we look forward to a wonderful working relationship.”
Mitchell will be joining us for the season opening Bowls Trader World Cup and UK Open in August and I’m sure he’d be delighted to chat to any players regarding feedback you have about any of our events.
