NEW Royston Rugby Club chairman David Gee has vowed to get hands on and take the club to new heights.

The club's former sports development officer has taken over from Lloyd Mullenger who was chairman for three years.

Gee said: "Lloyd has led the development of this club and has put a great deal of time and effort in support of the club. Royston had a fantastic season year last and everyone involved should be proud.

"It is an honour to have been elected as the chairman. I'm driven by the passion to improve this club further to the benefit of all members."

The club has also received a quality mark Seal of Approval that recognises high standards.

Former prop Gee, who lives in Fowlmere, said: "This is a good club that has a good foundation, but at the same time we still need to move forward.

"I would like to think that I will bring a lot of direction and enthusiasm to the role, and generally in business and in life I like things to move along and improve.

"I feel there's always room for improvement and we have been working hard to identify areas and put plans in place.

"We have lots going on over the next year and it's a very exciting time to be part of the club.
