Following a recent recruitment process in conjunction with Ulster Rugby and Ards & North Down Borough Council, Erin Hodgen has been appointed as Ards Rugby's CPO.
Erin lives locally and will be a familiar face to those who frequent Knotts Bakery, where she worked whilst studying at UUC.
Whilst studying at UUC Erin took up rugby and captained the university team; after graduating in Event Management Erin now plays at Ballynahinch and helps coach with North Down Ladies.
Erin has enthusiastically taken up her role and is currently focussing on the Y8-Y10 group in local schools including Dundonald High, Movilla High, St Columba's (Portaferry) and Nendrum College (Comber).
In conjunction with other CPO's Erin has organised a Y8 blitz at Hamilton Park on Wednesday 24th October from 1230-3pm.
Welcome on board Erin and we wish you all the success!!
