New EBED National Youth Officer Appointed

The Board of Trustees are pleased to announce that Charlie Bucknell and BucknellBridge have been engaged to provide leadership and coordination to our drive to expand youth bridge.

Charlie has represented England in the under-26 squad and is a former junior world championship bronze medallist and now coaches the under-21 squad. He has been active in youth bridge for a few years, supporting our youth camps and teaching bridge to school children.

This will build on the wonderful foundation developed by existing Youth Officer Joan Bennett, who continues to work with us.

We have strong ambitions in this area, convinced of the life enhancement that it offers to children and it being an investment in the long term future of the game.
