“I’m like the Mother Hen”

“I’m like the Mother Hen”

When Karen Harrington joined Gloucester Rugby as a receptionist in 2017 it was her first job after caring for her disabled daughter, but it turned out she’d still be looking after those young at heart when joining the Club. 

Now two years later as Senior Squad Administrator, Karen is officially Gloucester Rugby’s Mother Hen. Whether it be helping with the last-minute tickets, or settling in new players, Karen is always there to look after her rugby family. 

One of Karen’s favourite parts of working for Gloucester Rugby is seeing the players joke with each other. She says they love to make each other jump and as a result now no corner in her office is safe.
