Adrian Hoile and Chiswick RFC will part company at the end of the season when Adrian will stand down from his roles of Director of Rugby and 1st XV Head Coach by mutual consent.
The club wishes to thank Adrian for his significant contribution over an incredibly successful 7 year period. Adrian played key roles in the club’s first ever Middlesex Cup victory in 2013 and the follow-up victory in 2016 as well as leading the club to its highest ever league position by being promoted to London Division 1. 2015 saw the bonus of a memorable run in the national RFU Intermediate Cup through to the final of the London and SE division, losing to the eventual winners.
Chiswick Chairman Kelvin Campbell says,
“I would personally like to express my gratitude to Hoiley for the last seven years we have worked together planning & plotting the path of CRFC. I was asked by Ade what my vision and wish list was for the club, my reply was simple & not too demanding!
- Get to London Division 1 – many said don’t do it! I’m so pleased we did not listen as we will never forgot the magical day at Diss,
- Be a club that runs 4 competitive sides – big tick,
- Start a Minis section – another big tick,
- Win the Middlesex Cup – we had won the Bowl on several occasions but the Cup was the big one I dreamed of having our name on. Here we are, standing on the verge of a hat trick of Middlesex Cup wins.
Solid job done, thank you.”
Adrian and his coaching team will preside over the 1st XV as they attempt to retain the Middlesex Cup on May 7th and win our home 7s tournament on May 13th. Announcements about the coaching setup for next season will be made when appropriate but the immediate focus is the rugby on the pitch over the coming weeks.
As a Vice President of Chiswick RFC Adrian will always be welcome at the club and we wish him all the best for the future.
