Graham Scutt has been a member of Camp Hill Rugby Club for over 75 years and, for virtually all of this time, has held a voluntary position of some description.
From the age of eleven Graham has (with the exception of a period of National Service spent mainly in Germany) been ever present at the club, providing whatever support necessary to assist in the successful running of the club. Graham gave people of all ages, genders and backgrounds from the local community opportunities to engage with, and participate in, sporting activities.
For around 30 years he was a rugby referee, who was well respected both on and off the field of play. Currently the Match Fixtures Secretary, a role which requires seemingly endless telephone calls and negotiations, “Super Scutty” as he is known, is fantastic at ensuring all teams get a game. Even with Friday night call offs, he can be relied upon to pull a game ‘out of his back pocket’ to ensure players can have a game on a Saturday.
Today, Graham still turns out in all winds and weathers on Saturdays, putting out flags, supplying oranges and tea for the players, welcoming visiting referees and providing the social link after the games have ended for those officials to socialise within the club.
