Your new events team

10th Jul 2022

As the number of our sports and events increases throughout the year, we’ve taken the opportunity to refresh how our events are run and managed, ensuring the most efficient way to bring you all the very best in new activities.

To best utilise our team’s individual skills, we’ve now aligned a member of the team to each specific sport, ensuring the optimum level of service and consistency across our events programme.

We’re really excited to welcome a new team member to the group, so we thought this was a great opportunity to get to know all our event coordinators and find out a little bit about what makes them tick.

Matt Taylor – Events Manager

I have been with CSSC for over 15 years and I’ve had the opportunity to work on various events and projects, particularly enjoying working alongside our great volunteers. Our events have a blend of tradition and heritage along with innovation and excitement. The challenge of no two days being the same make it an interesting team to be a part of. I’m fortunate to have a wonderful team which are very supportive and excited to move things forward. I’m a keen sportsman and play golf, cricket and hockey. I also enjoy travelling, gardening and cooking.

Rachel Pearce – Event Team Leader

I’ve been working at CSSC for four and a half years, always as part of the events team. I have a passion for events and thrive on producing an idea on a piece of paper to developing it into a great event. I’m excited and eager to learn everything about the sports I manage and am looking forward to meeting and working with new people. My main passions outside of work include keeping active by going to the gym or running, being social with friends and going on adventures with my 1-year-old cocker spaniel.

Outside of work I’m passionate about Luton Town Football Club, working on my garden in my new home and walking with my Caviller King Charles Spaniel, Connie.
