I joined Old Pats RFC in 2009 when I arrived at the University of Gloucestershire having come from Hertford RFC as a young player, wet behind the years.
Having been regularly involved in the 1st XV since, I was made Club Captain in 2016 and have enjoyed this thoroughly.
The role entails a number of different facets including a link between coaches, players, the board and others. I have also supported the youth at Old Pats by coaching and trying to offer some of my experience to the next generation of Old Pats; who are making their way into Seniors now.
My time at the Old Pats has and continues to be very enjoyable with a lot of memories on and off the field, getting the balance right of a truly amateur-professional club who work and play hard.
