Club Management Focus: Summer 2019

My name is Jonathan Lillycrop and I have replaced Bev Purvis as Club Liaison Officer. I have been a keen bridge player since I learnt to play at age 13 and am also a Senior Congress Tournament Director. After 12 years working in IT Infrastructure for a bank I am excited to have made the switch to work for the EBU. In addition to my role as Club Liaison Officer I am also providing support for EBUScore the scoring software which is available free to all affiliated clubs.

The EBU has a number of forums discussing topics such as directing and scoring which have proved popular. A new forum has now been launched to discuss club related matters and the new forum can be found here. I hope people will find this forum useful, if you have a question for me which is of a more general nature where the answer may well be useful for other clubs then please feel free to post it there and I will endeavour to respond promptly.

Last week I made my first club visits and I look forward to visiting more clubs over the coming months. If your club would appreciate a visit, then please let me know and I will do my best to include it in my plans. If you have any queries relating to clubs or to EBUScore then please contact me, my direct phone number is 01296 317206 and my email is

If you have any queries about any of the content in this newsletter then the best points of contact are likely to be, Club liaison Officer, Sam Kelly - or myself,
