Roger Bremner - Club President
Roger joined Hornby Rugby Football club as a four year old in 1973. Playing through the grades. He played his first Senior years when the club still played in the CRFU Metro competition. Roger led the Hornby Seniors as Captain into the Ellesmere competition in 1993. He was involved as a player/coach in the original Swordsman (Div 3) team in 1998, and enjoyed a successful period with this team from 1999, winning five back to back titles. After 22 years as a player/coach with Div 3, Roger has decided to hang up his boots which brings to an end a playing career of 47 consecutive years. As the 2020 season looms, he looks forward to his role as part of the club management team.
Lyn Anderson - Bar Manager
Most of you know me in my current role as Bar Manager, where I have been since 2007.
Before then I held the role of Secretary for the club from 2004.
I have been involved with Hornby RFC since 1976 supporting my now brother in law Neville Wilson (Sword).
My daughter Jess has played rugby at the club since she was 7 years old starting out in Juniors then onto play for the Women's team,
My husband George played for the club from a young age and after a break came back to play in Senior grades for about 20yrs.
I love being involved in such a great family Club
Bryan Riddle- Senior Club Captain
Lyn Hucklebridge - ChairpersonI have been a member since 1984 when my 2 sons joined the Club. Over the years I have held various rolls in the Club beginning with the then ‘Junior Committee’ progressing through to the Senior Management Team. I was Secretary from 1999 – 2004, 2013 – 2015 and currently hold the Chairperson role since 2017. I was very honoured in September 2020 to receive Life Membership to HRFC.
I have always been interested in the well-being and Administration of Hornby Rugby and returned to the Management Team in 2013 to help regain a Division 1 team for the Club back in the Ellesmere Competition. This was successful and now Hornby Rugby has a Division 1 side competing in Ellesmere again.
I was actively involved with the ‘Save Denton Group’ that fought the CCC for the saving of Denton Park from becoming a concrete jungle for the South West Leisure Centre. The win for the Park to remain as it is came in 2018 ensuring the Hornby Rugby Club and Hornby Cricket Club retain their positions at Denton Park. This win enables Hornby Rugby to grow its playing numbers and once again become a strong Club. The Club is very privileged to have the use of Denton Oval for our home games as well.
My goal for Hornby Rugby Football Club is to help grow the game, increase the membership numbers and redevelop the back section of the Clubrooms to modernise it.
