Tony is joining a newly formed Board of Directors for DMPATL and will take the position of Non-Executive Director, bringing with him over 25 years’ experience in rugby both as a professional player and business leader. His extensive and successful business career in professional rugby includes CEO positions at a number of major clubs, including Wasps, Harlequins, London Scottish and London Welsh.

Speaking on his appointment to the new board, Tony said “I’m delighted to be formally joining in on Darlington Mowden Park RFC’s journey. Mowden Park represents one of the most exciting sports-business propositions within the UK at present, not just from a professional rugby perspective but also from community, grass roots rugby and facility perspectives.
