CHAIRMAN

Denis started playing rugby at Swanage and Wareham, with their Colts team at the time age 15, had great fun and a number of them made the D&W Colts side only losing one game out of 8 in two seasons. He then moved in to the senior Swans side till 1980, when he left the area and moved to London. In London he played for Askeans RFC. and Various midweek Police teams and finished playing at Vigo RFC in Kent a really friendly village club. He started refereeing in Berkshire in 1994 as he had just moved there and it was about the right age to consider stop playing. Unfortunately due to knee problems he gave up reffing in 2003 so started assessing for Sussex and held the role of Exchange Secretary, introducing the L9 & L10 exchanges with D&W which are still going today. Denis is the chairman of the Dorset and Wilts Refs Society committee.
