In preparation for the 11/12 season, Hackney RFC has today confirmed that the committee has been finalised with some alterations from previous years.

Several new positions have been recruited for: club captain will take a lot of the admin work away from the individual team captains and act as a spokesperson within the club. This move compliments the decision for the coaching team to appoint the 1st XV captain in a move away from election to reflect the level the club are striving for - this will be announced in early August in preparation for the start of pre-season fixtures. Jon Wood continues as Gogs skipper after a very exciting first year in league rugby, while Luke Hearn has stepped into the breach with the 2nd team as they prepare for life in Herts Middlesex 4 and the inevitable step-up in standard. There was an acceptance that dealing with recruitment and membership is too big a job for two people, with Matthieu and Dave joining the committee for the first time. Outgoing treasurer David Bates has finally had his pleas answered as Charlie Davis has put his hand up to take over the accounts. The Gladies involvement has been reflected in the duality of the social role with Fiona Booth joining Dan Frost to spearhead the extra-curricular side of the club. All of the committee can be contacted via the committee page and will be happy to answer any queries from anybody.
