Thanks...from the SRU!


Thanks to all the young players, wee sisters, parents and regular volunteers for putting in a shift in clearing the pitch and setting up in advance of Sunday's international. Alan Falconer did a grand job of coordinating the event in liasion with the SRU.  Thanks also to Nick and all the kitchen volunteers and bar staff - brilliant job! The contribution by the 'mini mums' in organising cake, candy and coffee was also greatly appreciated!

Getting the match played was probably one of the proudest moments I've had as President.  Our reputation for excellence continues to grow...  


We received the message below from the SRU today.  Click on the photos to see all the great photos taken by Neil Mitchell on the day.


Hi All

Apologies for not getting a chance to email you sooner – we have a big schools final taking place tomorrow so that has been keeping me busy since Monday! No rest for the wicked unfortunately.

 I wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help on Sunday – when I turned up on Sunday I wasn't convinced the game was going to be able to take place however you must've sourced every shovel in Hamilton to get rid of that snow and thanks to your hard work the game went ahead on time with no complaints from teams/officials.

We had our debrief on Monday regarding all the U18s/U20s/Women's games that have taken place over February and March and I'm pleased to report that Hamilton was the only club where we had no complaints from the teams – a minor miracle considering how demanding they can be and the obstacles that we faced on the day! This is a credit to the club as in the build-up to the game and on the day my life was made a whole lot easier by all your help – no request was too much (at least that's what it felt like for me!).

I thought the atmosphere on the day was spot on – everyone was in such a good mood and the attendance was excellent considering the horrible weather.

I wish you all well for the remainder of the season (your one game I believe!) and look forward to working with you again in the future.

If you have any feedback for me then this would be great also.
