Chris replaces former County Captain and England Captain Mike Weston following his death in December 2023.

For over 60 years Chris has administrated rugby for club West Hartlepool TDSOB RFC , Hartlepool & District and the County.

Chris is a Past-President (1991-1992) and Honorary Secretary (1992-2011) of the County and is our historian.

His volunteer work has previously been recognised on a number of occasions and most notably with the RFU award of the Zurich England Rugby Unsung Hero in 2001-2002 season.

We are delighted that the County’s number one supporter and longest serving volunteer accepted the role of Patron.

Congratulations Chris
