Thank you Rocky

By Stephen Leach

After 2 years as Head coach of the Senior Club, Rocky Hudson has announced he will be stepping down at the end of the 2018/19 season.

Rocky is very much part of the Club's History having been a member of the 1st Team squad during one of  our more successful period's in the 90's. He took over as Head coach in June 2017 after a disastrous 2016/17 season under the guidance of then DOR Carson Russell. Life started well especially after back to back relegations, with the 1st Team finishing 4th in Herts/Middlesex 1 and winning 13 out of 22 league games, the last time the 1st team managed to record double digit wins was during the 2014/15 London 2 season. The seniors then built on this success over the summer,  attracting new players and building player numbers. Unfortunately for Rocky the squad has been hit by long term injury  after long term injury this season. Because of this the 2nds have only managed to fulfil a handful of their Middlesex Merit table fixtures, however they have enjoyed an awesome cup run and have made it through to this season's Vase Final where they take on Twickenham 3rd's at Ruislip ‪on the 30th March‬. The injury ridden 1st team squad (even Rocky has had to pull on his boots this season) have done their best in the league this year, unfortunately they have been in a relegation battle for the majority of the second half of the season and have a record of 7 wins out of the 20 league games they have played so far. The 1st team have 2 league games left, away against top of the league Hitchin and the Home against Wasps in the last game of the season, both huge games that will decide our league status for the 2019/20 season.
The Club wishes Rocky all the best in his next adventure in Rugby and Thank him for all of his hard work and dedication over the 2 seasons he has been in charge of the senior set up.
