“To have been chosen as GPA President is an absolute honor and a great privilege for both myself and my family,” David Collins said. “I have always been passionate about our players’ welfare and the relentless work that the GPA is undertaking to better the lives of each and every member.

“Having been involved as player rep since 2005 and at the Executive level since 2011, I am delighted to be able to continue my involvement with the GPA in this new capacity as President.”
