The Tasmanian Cricket Association has appointed Marcus Pamplin to take over from Cameron Hodgkins as Bellerive Oval's new head curator.
Marcus Pamplin recently accepted the position and will be re-locating to Hobart from the ACT to start work with the TCA during the month of May.
Mr Pamplin has most recently been employed as the head curator of Manuka Oval in Canberra where he has prepared wickets for many state and international one-day cricket matches and prepared the ground for AFL Football. With 17 years experience in the
preparation of turf wickets, in 2004 Marcus was awarded Curator of the Year by Victorian Premier Cricket for his work at Geelong Oval and in 1998 he had international experience working as a groundsman at the Lords Cricket Ground in London.
Mr Pamplin said he is really looking forward to moving to Hobart and undertaking such a new and exciting challenge. "Bellerive Oval is a great ground and over the past few years in particular it has really been praised as a world-class international cricket venue. "I am looking forward to hitting the ground running and ensuring this high standard will continue well into the future," he said.
TCA chief executive David Johnston said he is confident that Marcus will be a positive addition to the TCA and of course Bellerive Oval. "Marcus has had extensive experience, education and training in his field and the TCA warmly welcome him to Bellerive Oval as the new head curator," he said.
