Last Sunday saw our final “Sunday Sessions” for this season. A huge thanks to all the players who took advantage to attend these sessions and stay connected with the club during these times. I know that many found them stimulating, tiring and at times mentally challenging but above all else, a heap of fun.
This newsletter will also see the publication of various Team Awards for this season (many were announced in the final Zoom sessions on Sunday). Each one of the recipients are to be congratulated for being recognised by their team management for their performances and effort throughout the season. What cannot be ignored however, is the team nature of rugby and none of these individual awards would be possible without the efforts of every single player in each squad. The collective effort allows some individuals to shine, so to all Valley Fort Rugby players – congratulations and well done on a terrific season.
A massive thanks again to all the coaches for all your efforts throughout the season. It has been a great insight for me into the real success of this club……it’s people and the coaches are at the forefront of that.
I also wish to thank the ExCom for their trust and faith in me and my role at the Club and fingers crossed for an uninterrupted 2022/23 season.
The news that Nov 4-6 we will se a return of the HSBC Hong Kong Sevens is exciting and will see two within 5 months of each other. This will hopefully give the Rugby C\community here in Hong Kong a chance to finally come together again and celebrate this great game, we will keep you all updated on this as we hear more.
To those that are leaving the club, whether parents, players, coaches; thank you for your support of Valley Fort and you will always be part of this community and it goes without saying, will always be welcome back. Whatever your plans are I wish those departing all the best moving forward.
Yours In Rugby
