Rob has been reconfirmed as Council Member for 3 years until 2024 after the clubs voted for him in a contested election. Here is his manifesto.


I began my playing career as a schoolboy at Malvern RFC a grass roots community club who encouraged me to grow and love the game and as a great rugby family even found me summer jobs
working for senior players. Having moved to London I continued to want to play and did so for Thames Poly Old Boys and then went onto Centaurs RFC, always taking my love of the game and great
friendships with me. On finally settling in Oxfordshire I joined Chinnor RFC as a player but latterly, having hung my boots up, I then took on several club committee posts as well as coaching 2 age groups
of players from minis through to Colts, which as I am sure you know is a large commitment but also hugely gratifying to see the young individuals and teams grow to be great players and great rugby
supporters. Having been Chinnor’s chairman for 3 years I became the Constituent body representative for the club opening my eyes further to how I could support and bring all my knowledge from club
rugby & how the community game is managed and its needs through to supporting the CB in many  different roles over many years. I have held the “CB chair of playing” role, looking after the Senior
men’s and U20’s squads and then becoming the County president before stepping into the Council role.
