He took part in age-grade rugby at Gala while his children were growing up and is enthusiastic and positive about club rugby.

His managerial and organizational skills have already led him to be involved in the development of the Borders Reserve team’s league for next season and appointed as Director of Operations for the re-introduction of the Inter District competition which includes ‘The South’ in May.

He told Borders Rugby TV: “It wasn’t something that was on my radar. I’m not full of my importance at all. I didn’t think of myself as a natural choice.

“But they sold it to me on a very positive note so I was happy to accept it and I see it as a huge responsibility for a great club to do everything we can to ensure the structure is in place to get the best out of the youngsters as they come and fill the Gala squad with Gala boys like Hawick has done recently.
