Members back new blood

As well as backing youth on the field, Welshpool RFC's members have decided to back new blood off the field as well, with a raft of new faces taking roles within the club committee.

Veteran player and previous Vice-Chairman Tom Carter agreed to take on the role of Chairman, with the support of Jamie Evans and Toby Hodgson as Vice-Chairman.

After over 30 years as a committee member, Gary Williams announced that he was standing down from his role of Secretary to pursue other areas of interest within the club, and was succeeded by former Assistant Secretary Barry Williams, with Women's Captain Becca Humphreys taking on the Assistant's role.

Michelle Petryszyn was re-elected as Treasurer, as was Mike Savage as Fixtures Secretary, both with the thanks of the club for their efforts over the past season. Savage was also asked to head the club's Development Sub-Committee, which is set to be very active over the coming seasons.

This new committee is one of the youngest the club has ever had, with the majority being either active players or referees. It is hoped that this group will be able to produce a similar off-field success to that which has been seen on the field over the past few years and push forward developments in the club as a whole.

After a promotion-winning season, senior coaches Daley Jones and Tom Worthy will be continuing in their roles, with the addition of Dai Roberts to their coaching staff.

Club stalwart Frank Johns continues as Youth Team Coach, whilst Rhys Roberts will carry on his good work developing the club's Ladies side and Barry Williams will continue to run the club's Junior Academy.
