Meet the Committee
Jerry Browne, Chair
My son and I started supporting London Irish at Sunbury in the 1990’s. In the days of Conor O’Shea at Full Back, Malcom O’Kelly, David Humphries, Mark McCall, and many other famous names. My wife, son and grandson are currently season ticket holders as well as me. Our family has sponsored Halani Aulika, Joe Cokanasiga, and we have sponsored Ollie Hoskins since he joined Irish.
Nigel Cross, Treasurer
First Match 2/9/2000, London Irish 27 Saracens 22 (first match at the Madejski). LISC Member since 2002.
I was there: Powergen Cup Final 2002, Premiership Final 2009.
The lows: relegation (twice is enough!).
My wife started coming to the Madejski in 2002, since then we’ve visited most of the English grounds with Irish from Newcastle to Penzance (and New York) and enjoyed many ‘City Breaks’ incorporating a London Irish European game across all four Provinces of Ireland and many grounds in Scotland, Wales, France and Italy.
The move to Brentford? It’s the right thing to do – the clue is in our name.
Duncan Kendall, Vice Chair, Website & Social Media
My passion for rugby began when I started playing for my school (tight head prop), and has grown stronger over the years. I started following London Irish soon after the move to Reading, and have been a devoted fan ever since, travelling to watch our team play across the length and breadth of England and into Europe.
I’ve been a season ticket holder for over a decade, and have sponsored a senior academy player for the last few years. I am excited about the club’s future as we move forward into a new era.
Andy Roberts, Secretary
Since the 2008/2009 season Viv and I have been regular supporters of London Irish, initially starting with home games and soon progressing to away matches in the UK, Europe & USA. We have also been able to combine our rugby obsession with travel to New Zealand to support The British & Irish Lions and to Japan for The Rugby World Cup to follow England.
On our travels we have met and become good friends with many people who we now regard as our London Irish and wider rugby families, and I enjoy the banter and camaraderie between rugby fans over a pint (or two!).
Pete Moody, Membership Secretary
Although I played a bit of rugby at school (very badly!), I started following club rugby very late with Richmond and following their demise took up LI’s season ticket deal at The Stoop in 1999.
My wife demanded a season ticket following the 2002 cup final and we haven’t looked back since. I have been in LISC for most of that time. We have enjoyed visiting various grounds where Irish have played in the UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA. It is an excuse to get away for a few days and we have a lot of happy memories.
A native to Football not Rugby Union, I started watching Irish during the 2010/11 season. Despite watching for this long I still struggle with the laws of the game (calling them rules until someone kindly put me straight).
I travel to a few away games a season and have travelled to the USA and Toulon to watch games.
We have been season ticket holders for nearly ten years and I currently sponsor Curtis Rona, having previously sponsored Jack Cooke.
