Etchels elected new chairman of Westoe RFC


WESTOE RFC held an emergency general meeting last night to elect a new chairman, with Ian Etchels winning the vote.

The meeting had been triggered by the resignation from the role of chairman by David Arundel in mid-February.

Arundel resigned at the same time as former director of rugby Andy Howells.

Westoe are now looking to rebuild themselves as a club under Etchels, as they prepare for life in North One East following the confirmation of their relegation from National League Three North.
