Euan joins Scottish Gymnastics from sportscotland where he was Lead Manager, heading up the regional sport partnerships in both the Tayside & Fife and Central Partnership areas.

I am looking forward to getting to know the clubs, gymnasts, coaches and volunteers, as well as the Board and staff."

"We are thrilled to have Euan leading our organisation, his knowledge and experience of the sporting landscape in Scotland will be invaluable, as we strive to further develop gymnastics across the country and implement our new organisational strategy from 2015."
