Chinnor Rugby have appointed their fly half Bertie Hopkin as club captain. Bertie has been at the club for 5 years and in that time he has scored 335 points in 46 games.
Speaking after his appointment Bertie said “After being at the club for five years, I’ve always wanted to play a key part in its journey. When club captain was first mentioned to me, I felt very privileged to be considered for this role and it is a great honour to be selected.”
Chinnor RFC Thame Director of Rugby, Richard Thorpe commented: “During my time as Head Coach, I was always impressed with Bertie’s influence over his fellow players. He is a club man through and through. While as a player he will no doubt compete strongly with the competitive backline we are developing, I feel privileged and excited to work alongside him as our Club Captain. Unlike some other clubs, Chinnor’s Club Captain will have a crucial role in player administration and delivering our new vision, and he will be forming a part of our senior management team.”
