AG Barr FD scores with Goals Soccer Centres


Alex Short appointed non-executive director of football centre operator

Article comments

Alex Short, the finance director of drinks company AG Barr, has joined AiM-listed football centre operator Goals Soccer Centres as a non-executive director.

The appointment is effective immediately according to a company statement. Prior to joining AG Barr, Short had been the group FD of William Grant & Sons. He has also been a management consultant with Coopers & Lybrand and held various management positions within Coca Cola.

Sir Rodney Walker, chairman of Goals Soccer Centres, said, “Alex Short has an impeccable reputation and has been part of a team that has seen AG Barr double in size during his tenure.”

“He brings a range of key skills and a wealth of experience that will further bolster our existing strong management team and contribute to the continuing success of the business,” he added.

Short’s new engagement comes as the merger between AG Barr and rival Britvic moved a step closer after shareholders from both companies voted in support of the deal to create Barr Britvic Soft Drinks.

Goals Soccer Centres operates outdoor 5-a-side football centres with 43 centres in the UK and one in Los Angeles, USA.

In addition to Alex Short’s appointment, the company is seeking to further strengthen its Board with another non-executive director appointment. A number of potential candidates have been interviewed and Goals Soccer Centres is expected to make a further announcement in due course.
