‘Sport and physical activity are powerful tools able to enrich lives and communities. Growing up in Australia sowed the sport seed very early in my life and I have been lucky enough to be able to footy, surf, golf, run and squash my way to my late 50s. As a new, independent organisation, Jersey Sport has a great opportunity to unite sport and to enable understanding of the benefits of sport and active lifestyles for all. I am proud to have been appointed to the Jersey Sport Board and be part of this great team’. Steve Law
