H J F Simpkins

President. 1983-1985

Hon Secretary jointly with his father E.F Simpkins.1957-1958 .   Solely 1958–1984.

Like his father  before him Jack served for many years  as Hon. Secretary of the Club. Could fairly be described as “Mr. Fix it” because of his vast number of contacts (throughout the game) and his little black book which contained records of matches and referee performances. He consulted his book when deciding who to ask to referee important matches since at that time referees were not appointed by the RFU.

Was tragically killed on his way home from an away match.
