Brian [AKA Ben] Jordan

 

Ben has been an active participant in Rugby at all levels.

He was GRFU President from 2009 to 2011 and an active member of the GRFU Committee for over 30 years, including working on the County Disciplinary Committee and being Club Representative.

He worked with the Bristol & District Combination acting as Treasurer from 1980 to 2012 and a Trustee for the old Combination Ground at Lockleaze from 1970 to 2017.

Ben’s Rugby playing career started with Clifton when he joined in 1962. He played in the lower sides and was captain of the B XV for several seasons. As his playing career came to a close, he took on Club administrative roles. These included Fixture Secretary, Team Secretary, Referee Appointments Coordinator, Assistant Treasurer, Chairman of Ground Committee, Player Registrar, 200 Club Administrator and NCA Representative. At one time he was writing for 4 newspapers in his role as Press Secretary, while being the Match PA Announcer. He truly deserves the accolade “Mr Clifton”.

 

Although Ben was totally dedicated to Clifton RFC, he was always aware of the bigger rugby picture; thus, his involvement with the RFU, County, NCA and the Combination. Nobody involved themselves in rugby activities outside of Clifton as much as Ben.  Sadly, in recent years, he has suffered from Parkinson’s disease, but carried this burden without complaint until recently,when he was forced to relinquish his rugby activities.

During the off season he was an accomplished cricketer,playing for the Bristol Bohemians Club and also acting as a respected umpire.
