Dear Vice President,
I hope this message finds you well and having enjoyed this season’s rugby so far, especially the Internationals back in November and more recently in the Six Nations. This season we have had a tough time out on the park in the Midlands Premier league, and as you may well have witnessed, there is tough competition at this level. In other parts of the club we have seen some real successes, Ladies Rugby have done especially well and deserve as much credit and support as we can give them, well done Derby Vipers! So too can be said for our 2nds who have produced some great wins this season in the Reserve League, with John Collins leading the squad, again well done there.
As this is the end of my 2 years as President, I can honestly say what a privilege it has been to represent the club through this time, and I must thank all our supporters that come down each week, and travel away too, for there loyal support. Where ever we have travelled to, for away games, we have received a warm welcome and been well looked after on the day, and it is true to say that the game of rugby always comes out on top, win lose or draw!
Our final Vice Presidents luncheon will be held on Saturday April 13th, when we will be hosting Nuneaton for the final game of the season. Please join me on that day for pre-match lunch, starting at 1pm, arrive 12:45 onwards, lunch will be a 3-course meal @ £20 per head (including programme). Very much look forward to seeing you there!
Please ensure you book your places with Robin prior to the date!
Thank you and kind regards,
President Derby RFC
