Stand Up

Postby BR » Sat Nov 18, 2017 10:34 am

http://ursc.co/?p=8894

After an astonishing 12 years as Editor of Stand Up,

Ken Arthur is standing down!



I think you will all agree that Ken has done a wonderful job over this time in producing a really well put together URSC magazine 3 or 4 times a season.

Whilst for Ken it has, for the most part, been a labour of love – it can certainly be hard work, but it is interesting, there are plenty of opportunities to meet and interview Ulster Rugby players and staff and get a better understanding of what goes on behind the scenes at the Kingspan, and of course the latest edition of Stand Up provides a tangible output for those efforts.

We now wish to make arrangements to find Ken’s successor. Accordingly the URSC Committee would like to know if there is anyone known to the membership who would be interested in taking on this role anytime between now and the start of next season. Journalistic skills would be helpful, but not essential. Enthusiasm, a love of rugby … and hard work are required.

Ken will happily work with the new Editor initially to show them the ropes.

If you are interested in taking on this role, or know anyone who might be, please email standup@ursc.co.uk putting “EDITOR” in the subject line, or speak to any of the Committee.

Jonathan Bill


Not going to enter into a debate here about the editorial merits nor the rights and wrongs of the URSC.

Just want to publicly thank Ken for his contribution over the years.

Now that you've given up writing news sheets, can we expect to see more words on bed sheets?

I’ll just say this, well done Ken Arthur, both for being Ken Arthur and for his contribution to Standing Up, both the magazine and for the rugby team.

It is my considered opinion that Ken Arthur is a good sort, but not very funny, some would say not funny at all.

12 years eh? That makes you a “lifer” in crim terms. You’ve done yer time and may now be relatively safely released back into society. :salut:

It is under the family stand. That's why there is a smoking ban. Wouldn't want the little darlings and the band blown sky-high, would we?

I think we can all agree that that would be a bad idea. For everybody.

However, I have drawn up a shortlist of candidates:

Rum
Baggy
Russ
Kofi
D4
Shan
Robert Mugabe

In fairness, Rum and Mugabe will be hard to surpass.
