Scottish Fencing appoints Blair Cremin as Club Development Manager

 

Scottish Fencing is delighted to announce Blair Cremin is joining the team on April 23rd as Club Development Manager.

Blair has a strong sports development CV and most recently spent over 4 years as the Regional Development Manager for the East and Central regions of Netball Scotland, overseeing a significant club and membership growth programme. 

Prior to his time at netball, Blair worked for Live Active Leisure as a Club Development Officer within the Wallace cluster in Stirlingshire where his focus was on disability sport and participation along with driving the pathway between clubs and schools. 

Blair has also spent time as an elite football coach with the Scottish FA and was also Head of youth Development at Stirling Albion FC for nearly 4 years.  As a graduate of both Strathclyde University and the University of Stirling, Blair’s leadership potential was also acknowledged by SportScotland when he was selected as part of the Future Leaders programme in June 2015, graduating in December 2016.

Blair had this to say about his appointment.  “I’m delighted to be joining Scottish Fencing and would like to thank the board for giving me the opportunity to contribute to the growth of the sport in Scotland. I’m looking forward to getting on the road, meeting with the members within our clubs and working together to increase the opportunities for people from all walks of life to participate in this great sport.”

Vincent Bryson, Scottish Fencing COO is thrilled to see Blair complete the core staff team for 18-19.  Speaking on Tuesday, Vincent commented “We are excited about the depth of knowledge and capability Blair will bring.  Our clubs will see a different approach to how we have ‘done’ development as so many are telling us they want to grow and change.  We have the right staff team to enable this change for our clubs and I look forward to seeing Blair deliver this for all of Scottish Fencing.”
