New Honorary Treasurer Announced
Somerset County Cricket Club are pleased to be able to announce the appointment of Nick Farrant as our new Honorary Treasurer.
Nick replaces Malcolm Derry, who stepped down from the role at this year’s AGM following six years of outstanding service.
Nick is Managing Partner of the Taunton Office of PKF Francis Clark Chartered Accountants & Tax Advisors where he works with a broad portfolio of clients providing audit, financial reporting and other advisory services ranging from acquisitions and exits to restructuring and due diligence.
His clients include professional sports organisations (both elite club and international teams), and some of Somerset’s highest profile businesses and charities, while he also heads up the firm’s food & drink sector.
Alongside his work with PKF Francis Clark, Nick is a Board Member and non-Executive Finance Director of Somerset Chamber of Commerce, is a committee member of the Somerset branch of the Lords Taverners and recently joined the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) South West Strategy Board.
Following his appointment, Nick said: “I’m a Somerset Member and I’ve loved cricket all my life. I was a distinctly average bowling all-rounder until various rugby injuries turned me into an even more average batsman. I’ve played league cricket down the years in Wiltshire, Devon, Westmorland and North Lancs plus in Somerset for the now sadly folded Bishops Lydeard CC.
“It was a tremendous honour to be appointed by the Committee as successor to Malcolm Derry and I will apply my enthusiasm for the Club, knowledge of the business of sport and wider experience to support the Club in this hugely exciting period for the game in England.”
Somerset CCC CEO, Andrew Cornish said: “Nick has a long association with Somerset County Cricket Club through his work with PKF Francis Clark and he certainly has a passion for the sport. His knowledge in the field of sports business is second to none and I have no doubt that he will help to successfully take the Club on to the next stage of its development.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to once again thank Malcolm Derry for his tremendous efforts over the last six years. Malcolm did a great job and I know that we are still in safe hands with Nick taking up this role.”Back to News
