Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club is delighted to announce that Mike Cudmore has been appointed General Manager and Director of Rugby.
Mike has led our coaching and rugby development efforts at Ealing since 2002 and has been our Director of Rugby since 2005. Mike assumes his new role with immediate effect, and his responsibilities now include direct involvement in player development across all of our sections, commercial relationships and our schools and community programmes. Mike brings with him a wealth of experience in these spheres from his earlier career with London Irish.
Mike Cudmore said, "It’s great to be able to help take our Club forward yet further. There is much more we can do to develop the talent of young players within the club and build relationships with business helping spread rugby values and the excitement of the game to more people in the local community". He added, "Ealing Trailfinders is already a great club and my job is to make it even better for everyone at Ealing. I am looking forward to getting started!"
In the first weeks of the new role Mike will be continuing to focus on the remaining 1st XV league matches, with promotion still up for grabs there is still much to play for. He will work to reinforce and further build the "One Club" ethos, and he will be reviewing all of our off-field support structures to ensure we have the right resources, in the right place, to deliver the services the Club members and partners need.
I know you will support his efforts and join me in congratulating Mike and wish him every success in the new role.
Mike Stiff – Chairman
