While I am not sure where the past two years have gone, it’s safe to say that I have enjoyed every moment of our Club’s progress both on and off the pitch. I believe that we have made many changes for the better and I would like to open my report by thanking every member and supporter of Sevenoaks Rugby Club for your outstanding commitment. From the players in the Under 6s to our passionate alumni, you make the Club what it is today; a thriving community that offers a warm welcome to guests and friends alike.
What a season it has been. We enter 2015/16 with solid foundations, a healthy balance sheet, outstanding support from players, members and sponsors, major capital investment underway and much to look forward to in a Rugby World Cup year…not to mention the Club’s 90th Anniversary Ball to kick-off the season in style. As a Management Team we aim to embody the views of our members. We may not always get it right, yet we will always make the effort to ensure that you are proud to be part of the Club that you play for and support.
I am very grateful to Management Team colleagues, who have led and embraced change in a way not always associated with the wider management of our great game: Phil Bradshaw, President, John Wilkinson, Treasurer, Andy Nicholls, Secretary, Roger McKerlie, Director of Rugby, Mike Wooldridge, Junior Chairman, and Steve Fitzmaurice, PR and Marketing Manager. Thankfully all have kindly agreed to stand again next year.
