Introducing our newest recruit, Richard!

We’re excited to introduce the newest member of the Clubmate Team, Richard!

Richard is our brand new Client Services Administrator. He’ll be managing our club clothing store and the transition to launching our latest environmentally friendly range of items (which is coming soon). Richard will also be the first point of contact for clubs ID card requirements. 

A little bit about Richard.

“I have always fished. As a boy, I would fish the River Mole in Surrey with nothing but a float and a maggot. My Dad had a small boat, and we would go to the sea from Littlehampton most weekends. I’d always come home with mackerel for my poor Mum to deal with!

Richard, Client Services Administrator at Clubmate

I moved to Cornwall just over twenty years ago, and that’s where my more recent love of fishing was rekindled. I fish every week, whether it’s Rainbow Trout fishing on small still waters or drifting a boat on the bigger reservoirs. Occasionally I like to go sea fishing; I recently caught Blue Sharks just off the coast of Looe which was an amazing experience.

I’m involved with a handful of angling committees, including most clubs on the River Fowey – which is my local river – and the neighbouring Lynher. I also run Colliford Salmon Hatchery, growing and stocking salmon for conservation. We recently took on the running of Lanhydrock Angling Association from the National Trust, and it was the obvious choice to use Clubmate so that we could sell memberships online, go paperless and start accepting online card payments. It allowed us to offer high-quality club merchandise for members too! I’m excited to join the Clubmate team and cannot wait to start helping other fishing clubs benefit in the same way we have at LAA.”

 

It’s great to have you onboard, Richard!

If your angling club is looking to start offering risk-free and (soon to be) environmentally friendly club clothing, get in touch with Richard today.
