May I welcome all members, supporters, sponsors and patrons of the club to the start of this new exciting season.
I would like to thank all the outgoing captains and vice captains for their efforts along with those retiring from 1st team rugby and wish good luck to this seasons captains and players of all the senior sides in their hunt for more league and cup honours as well as the ever expanding junior section of which we are immensely proud.
The executive committee is working extremely hard to deliver continued improvements to push the club forward to ever greater heights both on and off the field of play and I ask you all to give them as always your full support.
The various social events planned raise much needed funds for the club as well as providing great entertainment and provide excellent opportunities for members, supporters, ex players and committee members to meet and reminisce.
A big thank you to the staff at Ashbourne Ex Servicemen’s club for their hospitality as yet again they have all made us feel most welcome.
Finally I would like to thank all those who supported this wonderful club last season and I hope to see you all either socially or showing your support for our rugby players in this most challenging of seasons.
