Mark Ball returns to his ‘old’ club as its new club secretary

posted in: Juniors, Men, News, Women, Youth

Cambridge FC is pleased to welcome back Mark Ball who has been co-opted by our committee to be the club’s secretary.

He’s held various roles in the club before – player, coach, administrator – and he brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the secretary’s role.

Mark replaces Peter Bosch who suffered a cycling accident early this year and had to step down.

In recent years, Mark Ball has been a familiar visitor to John Kerkhof Park either as a referee, a board member for WaiBOP Football or as a coach of teams from Morrinsville or Te Aroha.

But the pull of his “old” club was enough to see him accept the chance to help Cambridge. He’ll continue to coach a school team in Te Aroha and to help with the running of the Te Aroha Cobras club – it’s all part of his commitment and passion for football.

He had two spells as a Northern League player with Cambridge (1991 and 2000), and twice coached the club’s first team (1988-91, and 2000).

He has refereed at all levels from school to Northern League and was club secretary at Cambridge for six years before becoming a board member of National League franchise Waikato FC and then WaiBOP United, as well as serving as a board member of the WaiBOP Football Federation.

For the past two seasons, Mark has been a commercial partner of Cambridge FC through his activities as a real estate agent.
