Overview

With the exception of Marf, at 29, Tom is the elder statesman of our 1st XV squad. This strong-running ball carrier has been involved with the First Team at Lucs since 2005, despite one little vacation away at Ledbury back in his younger days. A passionate bloke, who has always given his absolute utmost, Dinesy has over time developed into a real leader amidst our young squad. Whilst he may not always be able to keep a cool enough head on the field to heed his own advice, his leadership has been a major factor in the success our 2nd XV have achieved over recent seasons.

 
Having undergone his most effective off-season ever both on the training field and in the gym, Dinesy came into this season with a renewed purpose and ambition that has carried him from fringe first-teamer last season, into an integral role within our pack. In our diminutive squad, he adds the extra ballast that we need, either within the second row or at Number 8, wherever he is used, and his previously discussed leadership attributes go a long way to helping out our skipper.

 
Off the field Tom is an electrician by trade, and occasionally fits in some ‘Sparky’ work around his regular café and fast food outlet stops, although in fairness those days are recently behind him, since his new found love of protein-shakes and the gym. A true clubman, who does volunteer his time on different projects at the club as well as giving valuable input as a junior coach to various age groups on Sunday mornings. A certain Alacadoo of the future, Tom will undoubtedly continue to contribute to Luctonians life as he passes through the various spectrums of being a clubman.
