AINTREE has reappointed Nigel Payne

04 January 2013

AINTREE has reappointed Nigel Payne as press officer for the course until after this year's John Smith's Grand National.

Payne held the role for 30 years between 1976 and 2006 and steps into the void left by the departure of Emma Owen, the racecourse's marketing and PR manager, last month.

Payne said: "If Aintree and the National are in your blood, you can never stop feeling part of this tremendous event.

"When John [Baker, JCR North West Regional Director] asked me to consider the opportunity, I was not long in deciding and very much look forward to being part of the Aintree team in the lead up to and during this year's John Smith's Grand National meeting."
