“We have been very fortunate to have had good leadership from Paul Gallacher and most recently Ryan McGregor, who has done a fantastic job in leading the team in Paul’s absence.

As we now have clarity with Paul making the decision to retire, I felt it was important to get a someone in place as quickly as possible to lead the group forward. I am delighted for David; he has the respect and support of all his teammates, management and the committee of the club. I look forward to him leading the group forward.”
