South London Storm are pleased to announce the appointment of Graham Armstrong as club chairman succeeding Paul Brown who moved to Harlequins RL late last year.
Although growing up in Orpington where his first exposure to the sport was through the BBC TV commentaries of the late Eddie Waring, he does bring a wealth of Rugby League experience to Storm dating back to 1984 with Fulham.
Graham has built a successful business career but it's his time in Rugby League that will be of greatest benefit to the club.
His first foray into Rugby League was in 1984 as Sponsorship and Promotions Manager of Fulham RLFC.
After work commitments took him up North, Graham was offered the opportunity to join Warrington Wolves as chief executive. From 1995 to 1996 he helped prepare the Wolves for the transition to Super League. He also worked with The Rugby Football League to help prepare "Framing the Future".
2002 saw Graham return south where he began to work with London Broncos in the area of match day hospitality and promotion.
As well as being a director of TCS computer services he also continues to support Harlequins Rugby League through business & commercial planning plus Special event & VIP guest hosting.
He's married with two daughters and his whole family are great supporters of Rugby League.
An indepth interview with the chairman will appear on stormrl.com next week
