New Manager for NSC 15 July 2004

Carl Glover is the new manager of the National Sports Centre in Douglas.

He is looking forward to the challenge of managing the NSC and hopes to continue the excellent work that his predecessor Graeme Watson has done.

The NSC, which was developed by the Department of Tourism and Leisure, continues to provide top class facilities for the local community. The centre recently repeated its previous high score in the nationally recognised Quality Scheme for Sport and Leisure following external re-assessment. This means that the NSC retains its Highly Commended status placing it within the top 10 sports centres across the British Isles.

Carl said:

"The NSC is a centre of excellence in many ways, and this is mainly attributed to a firm and ongoing commitment to training and developing its staff."

Carl, aged 37, originates from Barnsley in South Yorkshire and has worked in the Leisure Industry for 20 years in various employment roles throughout the UK. His most recent employment roles have included manager of two separate leisure facilities in Gloucestershire, Sports Co-ordinator and also Health Suite Manager at the Metrodome Leisure Complex, located in Barnsley.

His qualifications include, Master of Business Administration, gained at Glamorgan University, and he is also a Diploma member of the Institute of Sport and Recreation Management.

Director of Leisure Mike Ball welcomed Carl to his new post, commenting:

"I know that Carl will contribute to our on-going commitment to provide Manx residents and our visitors with sports and recreation opportunities of the highest quality."

Carl is married to Jane and they have two children, Joseph aged five and Lydia aged two. Carl's hobbies include mountain biking, the occasional run and sampling his wife's home baked cakes.

Former NSC manager Graeme Watson recently moved to the post of access and recreation officer working for the Forestry Division at DAFF. His new post involves assessing the recreational potential of the Division's estate with a view to developing a long-term strategy of recreational improvements.
