The members of the committee are from a wide range of disciplines in the club. New committee members are accepted by agreement from the existing committee members.
Alan has been playing squash for over twenty five years and manages to arrange the odd game whilst inter-spacing his granddad role. He is in every sense a troubled soul, having been a Newcastle United supporter for over forty years and wonders if he will ever see the Magpies win anything!
As well as his Squash Committee duties Allan currently manages the Northern Squash Club Mens' 4th team.
Anthony joined the committee in late 2011, replacing a retiring member. He fitted in straight away and took up a position to support Wayne Eastaugh in the management of the internal leagues.
Anthony started playing squash in his late teens, and after a couple of years playing regular friendlies he joined Crowtree Squash Club. He played team squash for Crowtree before moving to Northern in 2010. His aim is to achieve a regular mid-table position and progress into team squash.
Clive has been involved in squash for over 30 years as a player, coach, and club manager. He uses his considerable experience to help make Northern Squash Club the best that it can be. He aims to continue the fantastic work done by his predecessors in the roles, Tony Brett and Derek Collins.
Although originally from the Manchester area, Clive now resides in Newcastle and views it as his home. He has been a member of Northern Squash Club for a number of years and in his own words, "I've enjoyed every minute of it and have gained some great friends."
Dave has served on the Northern Squash Committee since 2008, having been a member of the club since 2003. He is responsible for coordinating the team fixtures and team nominations.
Dave's squash career started in 1981 in Cheshire before moving to the North-East in 1990. Before joining Northern, Dave played at Ponteland, Kingston Park (rugby club) and Northumberland Club (Jesmond). He currently plays in the Northern Internal Leagues and Men's teams (captaining the 6th team in recent seasons).
Since joining the committee to replace an outgoing member in June 2015, Julie has been responsible for taking the minutes at the monthly committee meeting. A veteran squash spectator, she has recently caught the bug and dreams of reaching a standard to join the leagues.
Richard looks after all Junior matters at Northern squash club. He is chairman of Junior squash and head coach.
Richard is Qualified by England Squash to level 4 and CRB checked. He also undertakes all the squad coaching for juniors and organises Junior competitions.
If you have a query regarding any aspect of Junior squash, Junior coaching, or Junior competitions at Northern, you can contact Richard directly on (0191) 2859712.
Wayne took over as secretary of the internal leagues at Northern when the previous league secretary, Andy Lee, emigrated to Lanzarote. Before taking over, Wayne worked closely with Andy to develop the Wazygoose League Management system to power the leagues.
Wayne took up squash in his mid-twenties and aims to improve on his solid mid-table form (receiving weekly coaching from Derek Collins certainly helps!). Before coming to Northern, Wayne played squash in Preston and Manchester, playing Team Squash for Springfields Club near Preston and regularly playing at the National Squash Centre at SportCity in Manchester.
