Craig Hunter Head Coach – didi rugby Reading
Craig was involved with football ever since he can remember and playing rugby was not really on the radar until the latter part of his time at secondary school, when he joined Reading RFC as a 14-year-old.
That was over four decades ago. Since then, he has been fortunate enough to play for Reading RFC from Under-15s through to Colts and 1st XV level and has also represented Berkshire at Colts level too.
He retired from playing due to injury but continued his connection and has been part of running the club in many capacities, mostly in a voluntary capacity.
He had the privilege of being club chairman for five years and over the last three years, he has held the post of youth chairman; this most recent role is something he really enjoyed; watching the young future players learning to develop and love the sport.
Over this time he has witnessed how rugby and its core values, TREDS – Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship – have literally changed lives and created life-long friendships, not only at Reading but across the world. His recent trip to New Zealand to watch the British & Irish Lions reinforced this!
