Club Captain Announcement

August 25th 2021

The club has a rich and long history of 141 years in which we have had some fantastic Club Captains.

Traditionally, the role is filled by a player. A leader on and off the pitch that is approachable, a role model and with the club at their heart. As we went through the last few years as part of the rebuild, the club turned to stalwart Shaun Neaves to lead the way. Shaun continues to work tirelessly with the Youth section and the senior squad as a scrummaging coach. 

With the new season on the horizon, it was decided that it was time to place the honour onto a player. Over the past year, Will Fox has stepped up without prompting. His leadership, dedication and drive has not gone unnoticed.

Will came through the ranks from the Barbarians, to narrowly missing out on a place within the victorious Twickenham squad. The popular character around the club has also been active engaging the youth section as part of the successful Touch Tournament, as well as driving his fellow teammates to be as good as they can be.

He was announced to the squad as this seasons 1st XV Captain for the 2021/2022 campaign and with this honour, along with his leadership during lockdown, made him the right choice to be the new Club Captain.

We thank Shaun Neaves for his Club Captaincy over the past four years and welcome our new 1st XV skipper & Club Captain Will Fox to the history of this great club.
