Presidents Message for Season 2013/14
Dear Fellow Members
I am hugely proud and privileged to have been elected President of this great club for the next two seasons and I am delighted to welcome you to our club’s website.
We will endeavor to keep this site current and relevant to all rugby activity and events during the season and to represent all sections of the club. Our aim is not only to provide match reports, photos and details of forthcoming team fixtures but also to promote the many events we have planned to take place in the coming year to which everyone is invited. I would encourage you to visit the website regularly to keep up to date with club life and to follow us on Twitter @BalbrigganRFC (coming soon) and Facebook – Balbriggan RFC for further information. You can also email us at email@example.com and we welcome any suggestions you may have relating to any aspect of Club activity.
The senior side enters the new season in a much stronger position than this time last year thanks to the tremendous work put in by the senior management and coaches last year. I’m sure they will capitalise on this excellent work done in the coming season.
Youth & Mini sections continue to go from strength to strength and in many respects have set the standards for other clubs to aspire to. Both of these sections are crucial to the Club. As we are building for the future and developing our players to maintain a top level of rugby with ‘home grown’ talent, much more emphasis will be placed in these two areas in the coming year. We pride ourselves on being able to maintain our teams with local players thanks to the strong Mini and Youth Programmes we have established and long may it continue.
I would like to thank all our sponsors who have remained loyal to us especially in the last few years, which economically have been very tough. We, in turn, must play our part in supporting them in any way we can.
I also want to thank the many members of our club who give freely of their time and support our fundraising efforts year after year and do so much ‘to keep the show on the road’.
Finally, I look forward to another great year at all levels in the Club and wish all our players, teams, coaches and supporters every success in taking on the challenges this coming season.
Yours in Rugby
