The Hertfordshire Cheetahs are pleased to announce the appointment of Joe McGregor as (U19s) Club Captain, following a unanimous decision by the Academy Coaches. A graduate of the Cheetahs Youth programme, Joe plies his trade on the Cheetahs outstanding defensive line, as well as being a weekly standout on special teams. He follows in the footsteps of outgoing captain Fab Hayward, who has led the Cheetahs through three years of transformation. Per Head Coach Alex Halms: “Joe has witnessed our development first hand, and has been integral to it. He’s a team-first player, leading by example on and off the field. He was the natural choice and we can’t wait to see him step up in the coming weeks.” Joe’s first test? Leading his team against the undefeated Birmingham Lions in the season finale, with a win-and-your-in scenario on the table. Show your support for Joe and Cheetahs teammates on Sunday 23 July, 12pm KO at St Albans Rugby Club.
