The Griqualand West Rugby Union has confirmed that Monte Engelbrecht has been elected as its new president.
The news was confirmed by the union on Saturday.
It is understood that Engelbrecht was voted into the position unanimously following Saturday's AGM in Kimberley.
Engelbrecht, who is 51-years old and is a training manager at the South African Police Services, replaces the outgoing Jannie Louw as president.
Louw will be joining the SA Rugby executive committee.
Engelbrecht will serve as president until at least November 2021, which is when Louw's term was due to end before he moved into the SA Rugby administration.
A proud South African union, Griquas have won the Currie Cup three times, the last of which came all the way back in 1970.
They were losing semi-finalists in the 2019 edition of the tournament.
