Chris Clark was my first ever apprentice starting at 17 years old. 3 years and an NVQ level 2 later and Chris has achieved a fantastic promotion to First Assistant at neighbouring Princes.
Chris was a very popular member of the team and achieved a great deal at the club. He was runner up at the Toro Young Student Greenkeeper Of The Year Award in 2017 when fellow workmate Nick Machin went on to take the main prize of Student Greenkeeper Of The Year.
Princes have undergone huge changes both on the course and with staff and the McGuirk family continue to invest which makes for a very exciting role for Chris and indeed a prosperous future in Turf management.
