Cardiff RFC are delighted to announce that club stalwart John Huw Williams has accepted an invitation to become a Club Vice-President.
JHW as he is affectionately known has been around the Arms Park since making his debut for the Blue & Blacks in 1964 against Cardiff & District. He earned his Club cap in the 66/67 season playing 73 games in all before his last match in 1969. A natural winger he scored 27 tries in his time in the Blue & Black shirt.
John transferred from the playing field to the committee room and became one of the driving forces behind the move to professional rugby in the 90s. John was also at the head of the launching of junior rugby and schools initiatives – a subject that he is still very passionate about.
John has severed as Chairman of the Cardiff RFC committee and as a rugby representative on the Cardiff Blues Board for many years.
Chairman Chris Norman made the invitation at the latest Cardiff RFC committee meeting on Tuesday saying “this is a well-deserved accolade for a man who has given his rugby life and soul to the Blue & Blacks. Knowing John he will continue to give his all to the RFC committee – well done John – we look forward to seeing you around the Arms Park for many years to come”
