Josh Bradshaw has been appointed the interim CEO of Football Federation Tasmania.
He takes over From Richard Welsh, who resigned on 16 May after just six months in the position.
Bradshaw has held senior roles in both the public and private sectors, including being head of a ministerial office in the Tasmanian Government.
More recently, he has been working in a part-time capacity as general manager to assist with the delivery of the Pumphouse Point project at Lake St Clair.
FFT President Sean Collins stated that, given the football season is now well under way with staff engaged in the many operational aspects this brings, the Board considered an interim CEO to be the best approach.
“There are a number of important areas that need progressing, not least being the Cambridge Football Precinct for juniors, as well as planning for the 2014 Melbourne Victory week,” Collins said.
“Having an experienced pair of hands is important so we don’t lose any momentum, so we’re delighted to have Josh on board to assist.”
The recruitment process for the CEO position has already commenced with the position being advertised last weekend.
Football Federation Tasmania (FFT) has advised the following changes to the roster for the upcoming Round 9 of the Victory League next weekend.
The scheduled double-header at KGV Football Park will now be a triple-header, with Olympia Warriors’ match versus Devonport City moved from Warrior Park to KGV Football Park, thus providing a three-match feast of football for spectators.
As a result, there has been reshuffling to the schedule of the event, with Tilford Zebras versus South Hobart now being shifted to a later time slot to accommodate for the change. This game will now kick off at 6.30pm at KGV Football Park.
FFT thanked the participating clubs for their cooperation in facilitating the fixture changes.
The fixture for this weekend’s Round 9 of the Victory League now is as follows:
VICTORY LEAGUE – ROUND 9
Launceston City v Kingborough Lions United 4:30pm Saturday, 31 May 2014 (Mitsubishi Park)
KGV TRIPLE-HEADER – Saturday, 31 May 2014 (KGV Football Park)
GAME 1: 2:00pm Glenorchy Knights v Northern Rangers
GAME 2: 4:15pm Olympia Warriors v Devonport City
GAME 3: 6:30pm Tilford Zebras v South Hobart
