THE boss of Gosling Sports Park has resigned after four years in the post.

Chief executive Duncan Kerr will leave the WGC complex at the end of February for a new job in South Wales.

He said: "I have enjoyed my time at Gosling immensely and while recognising the opportunity in front of me, I am sorry to leave such a wonderful facility, great staff and customers.

"Gosling is, quite simply, 'unique' and it has been a privilege to have lead the team over the past four years.

"I have no doubt that the new gym and spa development will provide the community with a fantastic leisure offering and I look forward to coming back to see the finished product."

John Beech, chairman of Gosling's board, paid tribute to him.

He said: "Duncan has done a fantastic job for Gosling and the local community over the last four years,

He has led the way in shaping a bright future for the sports park and we are sorry he will not be with us to see the completion in September of the new spa and gym facility that he has put so much effort into creating.

"His new position in Wales is a superb career opportunity, richly deserved, and the board and staff of the sports park wish him well for the future."

Mr Kerr will become managing director of Celtic Community Leisure, a trust company set up by Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council to manage its nine sports and leisure centres.

The search for his replacement at Gosling has already begun.
