Location: Ford County Cricket Ground, Chelmsford
I wanted to let you know that we have a guest speaker – JP Doyle an RFU elite panel referee. Let’s make sure we have as good as or even better attendance than our first meeting.
By way of background, JP is originally from Dublin, and progressed here via London Society becoming a full time referee on the RFU’s Elite Referee Panel. In addition he has been appointed to the IRB Referee Panel and has officiated there in the World 7s series and the IRB Nations Cup.
As additional background here is a copy of the press release from May 2008 with some more detail about JP:
