Table Tennis Scotland Chairman, Terry McLernon MBE, said
On behalf of my colleagues on the Board, I am delighted to welcome Stuart back to Scotland and to the Association and wish him every success in this exciting new role made possible with support from our main funding partner sportscotland.
Richard Yule, TTS Chief Operating Officer, also welcomed the appointment saying
Table Tennis Scotland is fortunate to have recruited such an experienced and talented professional to help drive our sport forward. Stuart will be there to support the volunteers in our affiliated Club and League network and help deliver the three core ambitions identified within the new TTS Four Year Strategic Plan, 2023-2027: Introducing more people to the sport. Keeping people playing in an effective infrastructure of places to play making Scotland a great place to play table tennis, both competitively and socially.  Improving our performance on the international stage by developing the best performance pathway for our aspiring young players.

Many members will remember Stuart who started playing table tennis in 1977 in Glasgow and gained his level 1 coaching certificate in 1984. By 1996 he had achieved level 4 and was a tutor/assessor for the level 1 and 2 certificate in Scotland and in England. He was appointed as table tennis development officer with Manchester City Council following the World Championships in 1997 for 7 years. From 2005 he lectured in coaching at the University of Bolton. Stuart has served twice as a volunteer on the TTS Management committee, once under the chairmanship of Ben Dawson and the second as Director of Coaching under David Clifford.
Stuart will be in touch with the membership in the coming weeks as he gets to grips with his new role.
