All change at the top

The 2017 SSA AGM saw the end of an era when retiring Chairman, John Trigg, handed over the reigns to Malcolm Denton. Anyone that's been involved with the SSA in general and the SSA committee in particular will know what a driving force John has been during his tenure. John will still be involved in SSA matters in his role as Club Liaison. An absolute legend and a hard act to follow. Anyone that knows Malcolm will know that he's just the man to keep the momentum going as we continue to go from strength to strength. John, thank you for everything you've done. It's been a blast. Malcolm, good luck and best wishes for your chairmanship. We're all behind you.

On a night when John Trigg handed over Chairmanship to Malcolm Denton, the AGM was really just a sideshow. Preceded by the coaches' review - Mark McCall, Kevin Sorrell and Dan Vickers gave us a little insight in to last season, what we can look forward to this as well as gardening and chainsaw tips! All three of our sponsored players - Nina Vistisen, Joel Kpoku and Tadgh McElroy - had a gentle Q&A session with SSA life-member and voice of Allianz Park, Ed Clark and Andy Duckworth answered members' questions and shared future plans for the club.
