Leicester Falcons Club President and owner of Double Coverage, Guy Kersey, has left his role as Interim Events Manager with BAFA.
At this stage we have been asked to not share the actual resignation letter, which was written on headed Leicester Falcons paper, but we are able to confirm details from it.
Guy explains that the decision was not an easy one for him to reach but feels that in order to protect his professional reputation in the Events industry, he had no other choice.
Guy cites budget cuts to an unnamed 2-day event (assumed to be Britbowl) as a reason for this. He explains that the budget is half of what was allocated for the 1 day BUCS Final this year.
Interestingly, Guy also cites the BAFA Board’s decision-making as another reason for him stepping away. Its not clear which specific decisions Guy is referring to.
We are going to reach out to BAFA for further/counter comment.
