New regional pitch adviser for IoG-led project

The Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) has appointed a new regional pitch adviser for the IoG-led Grounds and Natural Turf Improvement Programme in the south east.

Darren Symonds joins an existing team of eight regional pitch advisers plus the programme’s national manager, Jason Booth.

Symonds worked as a groundsman at Oxford University Parks, Marston Sports Grounds and Sir Roger Bannister Running Track from January 2004 to August 2008, before joining the groundscare team at St Albans School.

He has achieved NVQ Level 3 in Amenity Horticulture Sports Turf Management and is currently undertaking the FdSc Sportsturf Distance Learning Degree with Myerscough College.

Booth said: "Darren’s background complements our talented regional pitch advisor team and I have no doubt that he will become an important asset."
