IN a break with over 90 years of tradition Chesterfield Panthers RUFC have elected a woman president for the first time.

Michelle Lord, pictured above, was elected to the position with a unanimous vote and has now taken office for what will be a momentous year for the club as it prepares to move from Stonegravels to its new home at Dunston.

Michelle has been a regular player in the club’s highly successful ladies team for the last ten seasons and an active fundraiser for all sections of the club for all of that time.

Michelle said: “I am honoured to be chosen as the first ever female president in this new and exciting chapter in the history of Chesterfield Rugby.”
