The West legend follows in the illustrious footsteps of another, of course. Reg Turner was also a player, coach, Club Chairman and a statesmanlike President before his untimely death following the Chester game in February.
Dave, who is 63, had a long, successful and unusual rugby playing career where he earned his reputation as a try scoring winger before announcing that he wanted to play in the front row. He did so with similar success.
As a coach he took West to the highest levels and also coached the North of England.
Graham Frankland has been wearing a No 10 shirt at West as long as anyone can remember. He's happy to tell anyone that he is ten years younger than Dave Stubbs, and had announced his retirement from the game at the end of last season alongside another long server Peter Wilkinson.
However, nobody quite believes that his boots have actually gone in the bin.
Club Chairman Peter Olsen says: "The club is extremely lucky to have people like Dave and Graham on board. They have a wealth of experience both on and off the pitch and, of course, both hold down very senior positions with the local authority.
"They have busy lives, but will share the official Presidential duties as well as making a valuable contribution at Board meetings."
