Time for change

AFTER a 10-year partnership with South West Sport (SWS), president, Brendan Jones, is set to step down from his role at August’s Annual General Meeting.

Jones has been an integral part of the organisation over the past decade and in particular for the past five years when he has held the presidency.

Always of the view to leave things better then when he took over, he has had a positive effect on so many sports and clubs at grassroots level.

He said SWS remained in a strong position which was the ideal opportunity for him to step back and allow some fresh ideas to step up in his absence.

“I think everything runs its race and I don’t want the organisation to become stale, so renewal is really important especially for sporting organisations,” he told The Spectator.

“The organisation is going well, and I had planned on stepping away last year but with COVID-19 it wasn’t the best time.

“I had put stuff in place that I wanted to see through, so now is a good time to have some change.

“I’m not saying I won’t put my hand up to return at some stage, but for now it’s time for me to step away.”

Jones noted the importance of the board, its members and its discussions over the years.
