Larry Patton

President of Hockey Operations

Director of Sponsorship

2019 - Present

Larry has over 30 years of experience running and coaching hockey teams in Ontario. He started his hockey career as a coach in 1981 for the Lindsay Bantams and then progressed to the role of General Manager. From there, Larry became the Head Coach for the Chippawa Jr. C's in 1987. Having achieved great success with the team, he moved on to work with the Niagara Falls Jr. B  Canucks and then on to a General Manager role with the Niagara Falls Midgets. Larry remained with the Niagara Falls Midgets until 2007, when he decided to take a hiatus from the hockey league - in order to focus on his family and further develop his own business.

Upon Larry's return to the Ontario hockey scene, he has thrown himself 110% at the roles of President of Operations & Director of Sponsorship for the Campbellford Rebels Junior C's! Larry celebrates the rich history that the team has within the Campbellford community and recognizes the potential that they possess. Not only is this Larry's home team, but he is more determined than ever to apply his knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm to the organization in order to bring the Campbellford Rebels back to the winning franchise that they once were.

Matt Wilkes

Vice-President of Hockey Operations

2013 - Present

As a kid in Campbellford, Matt grew up being a Rebels fan; Saturday nights were spent at the arena with friends, watching his home team. The 2011-2012 season is a highlight of his, when the team made it to the semi-finals for the Schmaltz Cup. While Matt played hockey as a kid, it was the desire to give back to the hockey club that had brought him so much joy over the years that led Matt to begin volunteering his time. He joined the executive board and began helping with whatever the team needed: fundraising events like car washes, volleyball tournaments, golf tournament, etc. Along the way, Matt was the home game DJ for three seasons with the following three seasons as the team's trainer. With such a vested interest and overall passion for the team, Matt was recognized immediately by the current ownership as the valued asset that he is and in turn, named the general manager for the 2019-20 season. With continued efforts to rebuild the team, Matt is proud of the progress that has been made to date; eager to see the new, highly talented additions to management and coaching staff begin working together; and the strong recruiting efforts that are currently underway for the 2020-21 hockey season.

Josh Cork

President of Alumni Association

2020 - Present

A Campbellford local, Josh started playing hockey as a tyke and became a Campbellford Colt as soon as he could. When Josh turned 15 he got to play in his first Rebels game and then joined the team for his first full season in 1999 - when the Campbellford Rebels were league champions! Josh fondly reflects on those years as #23, playing winger + defence, because the team was rich with local players who were not only teammates but classmates and friends.

In 2019 Josh stepped up to volunteer his time, organizing the first ever Campbellford Rebels Alumni Fundraiser Game which was hugely successful: The community filled the arena, the alumni played a competitive game on ice, and people reconnected after years apart. Josh is excited be a member of the Campbellford Rebels once again; He is eager to reconnect with former players and coaches, build new traditions for the club, and pull the community together in order to support all future players. Josh's passion and enthusiasm for the hockey club is contagious which is why he is exactly the man for the job!
