New UKU staff members

UK Ultimate is pleased to announce that our long-time Director of Competitions, Benji Heywood, has been hired into the part-time role of UKU Events Coordinator.  Benji has been directly involved in the growth and success of UKU's competitions structure and events since becoming the first Indoor Director of Competitions in 2005 and was of course ideally suited to be able to take on this position.  Benji has had to resign his position on the UKU Board, so we will be looking to appoint or elect a new Director of Competitions later this year.

As the size of the sport and the organisation continues to grow, the Board also decided to hire a part-time book-keeper at the end of 2013.  We were delighted when Laura Atkins (an ex-UKU treasurer, UKU Chair as well as GB captain on a number of occasions) agreed to do the job.

Congratulations and good luck to both of them.
