A hard act to follow!

After 20 years in office Paul Mason has decided to stand down from his position as Club Chairman.
Paul who took over the Chairmanship from Jeff Tate in 1997 has in total served an incredible 40 years on Drybrook’s committee.
During this time he has also been the clubs fixture secretary and even more remarkably archivist/Match reporter/press officer for the entire 40 years.
A true legend of the club, Paul is having a well-deserved break to recharge his batteries but will carry on helping the club in any way he can. Currently he is finalising his new book “Drybrook Rugby Football Club: The Last 25 years” which commemorates 125 years of rugby at Drybrook.
Since Paul took the helm Drybrook RFC has been transformed into a thriving business which is the envy of many rugby clubs in the country.
The improvements to facilities for both Rugby and entertainment stands as a legacy to his hard work and dedication over the years.
He has been personally responsible for the upgrades to the clubhouse, floodlights and changing rooms as well as the new gymnasium.

His talent as a wordsmith was central to Drybrook RFC’s winning bid to host the launch of the new England kit in 2012.
Paul was also the architect of the clubs RFU Whole Club Seal of Approval in 2012 and RFU Club Accreditation in 2014
Drybrook Rugby Club will be eternally grateful to Paul for his efforts and for plotting a course for its continued success and development.

Elected at the recent AGM the new Chairman, Chris Rawlings will face a stiff task filling his predesessors shoes.
