New signings at Community Sports Trust

23 January 2013

Re-organisation of the CST structure has been undertaken.

With the recent move of Martin James from the Community Sports Trust to his role as head of community development for the whole club and other managerial duties, a re-organisation of the CST structure has been undertaken. 
Lee Pugh has been named Community Development Manager while Jenny Daniel has been appointed Community Development Officer. 
Lee, 39, has worked for Shrewsbury Town's community scheme since April 2001. A former student at Manchester University, he has become a well known figure coaching youngsters around the county.

Lee enjoyed a successful local football career for more than 10 years, playing for the likes of Shawbury United, Welshpool Town and Llanidloes Town.

Lee said: "It's nice to have a new challenge with a lot more responsbility, more pressure, but there are huge opportunities for the community scheme in the future." 
Jenny, 24, has worked for the club within hospitality for two years so is well known already to the staff and many supporters. 

Jenny earned a first in a degree in Sports Development and Physical Education from Liverpool John Moores University. She has gained experience working with the Trust on several projects within schools and community groups. 
Her new role will involve sourcing new initiatives for the CST to work with. This will include networking to find suitable partners and funding opportunities.
Jenny said: "I am absolutely delighted to have accepted the role of Community Development Officer for the CST.

"Having already worked here for two years, I have a strong affinity with the development of the club. The opportunity to experience working on projects within local schools and the community to date has made me ever more excited to develop these further, forming new partnerships within our local community through the implementation of new initiatives. 

"This role will see me driving forward community provision particularly in the areas of health, education, social inclusion and sports participation.

"I am really looking forward to working in my new capacity as Community Development Officer with Shrewsbury Town Football Club." 
Martin James, delighted with the two appointments, added: “Working in the community development requires enthusiasm, awareness, clear thinking and vision. 
"Add to this excellent people skills and you have an opportunity to do good things for and on behalf of the community. These are all qualities that both have already shown and we are very pleased that they are part of the community team.”
