"Since taking over as interim Chief Executive last April, Paul has
impressed the board of England Netball in providing positive and strategic
leadership after an unsettled period," commented Cheryl Danson, Chair of
the Board of Directors. "The board felt it was important to provide
continuity to enable the organisation to continue the rapid progress which
has been made in the past 12 months. After a stringent interview process,
the panel felt that Paul was the right person to continue in the Chief
Executive's role.

"Under Paul's leadership, England Netball has continued to establish its
credentials as the country's most popular team sport for women and girls,
and his input has been recognised by our other stakeholders," she
continued. "His involvement has provided stability fo rthe team at head
office, as well as for our regional management structure, and the board is
confident that he will continue to develop and encourage the further
growth of netball in this country in the coming years."

Clark is thrilled at his appointment: "In the past year, England Netball
has made some impressive strides in terms of participation figures and
profile building, and I am delighted that I will be able to direct further
expansions in the coming months. I am very grateful for the support of
the board of directors and the employees at both head office and across
our regions, and I know that together we will make England Netball an even
stronger force to be reckoned with in both domestic and global sporting
terms."

Clark has been chair of the Surrey Active Sports Partnership since 2002,
and was formerly managing director of Tandridge Leisure Ltd. A director
of England Netball since 2006, he also has more than 30 years experience
of the sport and leisure industry as an administrator and teacher.
