Jonathan Pearce is switching from the summer to the winter game as he takes up the post of RFU Rugby Development Officer for Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

Originally from Belfast, Jonathan, 30, has moved to the Eastern Counties’ post from Worcester after a successful spell as Cricket Development Officer for the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Over the coming months he intends to visit all the clubs in the two counties, with the focus on strengthening the clubs and growing the game around them.

Jonathan has been involved in sports development for a number of years as a volunteer & club development officer for a local authority.

He enjoys all sports as a participant and as a spectator and competes in an annual sevens rugby tournament with friends from university.
