Ian gave up playing many years ago due to a lack of ability and took up refereeing which he enjoyed for over 15 years with the London Society. During that time he was an active member of the South West region including working with the RFU delivering the ELRA courses with Bob Ockenden for 10 years. Ian was the founder of the Surrey Referees Group which received an RFU President’s Award.
A former Chairman of Sutton and Epsom RFC and now their Disciplinary Secretary and Co-Club Safeguarding Officer, Ian has also been an accredited RFU member of the county Disciplinary Panel for over 10 years.
He is delighted to be returning to the role of Chair of Game Development at Surrey Rugby and working with some old friends and supporting President Dave Doonan.
