Pete Grzonka, Gloucester Rugby's Head of Sales of Marketing, was delighted to confirm today that the club have appointed a new 1873 Club Manager.
1873 Club is the exclusive members club within the C&G Grandstand at Kingsholm.
Members enjoy the benefits of their own permanent padded seats in the very best seating locations and use of the members' only bars and restaurants.
Until very recently, the role of 1873 Club Manager was held by Laurie McNeill but with Laurie having moved on to pursue other career options, Clare Reader will start in post from Monday May 11th.
Pete confirmed today:
"The 1873 Club Manager is a key role for us as the main point of contact for our 670 corporate members and we embarked upon a stringent recruitment process to find exactly the right person for the job."
"I'm very happy that Clare will be joining us and look forward to welcoming her to Kingsholm and building on the good work done by Laurie."
