Geech becomes STUBS Patron. Sir Ian McGeechan OBE has agreed to become Patron of STUBS with immediate effect. On taking up his appointment, Sir Ian said: "I am honoured to have been asked to become Patron for such a worthwhile cause. Our servicemen and women deserve our utmost respect and gratitude for putting their lives on the line to defend us. I have been to a number of fantastic STUBS events and met some true heroes who have served on the front line. It is a humbling experience to talk to those individuals who have suffered life changing injuries and often lost comrades as well. I hope that by becoming a Patron, I can encourage others to play a part in giving something back to those brave men and women who serve Queen and country so selflessly."
We're all absolutely delighted to welcome one of the kindest and most respected men in rugby onboard as our Patron, and we look forward to working with him and his wife Judy in the future.
