Happy New Year to all the Valley Fort Community and welcome to 2022.

The next few weeks were to be very exciting for both the Youth and Mini programs with finals, carnivals and new training venues for the players and social gatherings for the parents : all that makes Valley Fort a special club.

I want to take the opportunity to congratulate all 27 of our Youth players who represented the club on New Year’s Day at Hong Kong Football Club in the representative fixtures. The standard on the day was impressive and Valley Fort players clearly stood out in all the games with valuable contributions in tightly contested games across the board.

Unfortunately, the announcement this week from the Government and the directives we have been given from the Hong Kong Rugby Union means that all Rugby activities are suspended until further notice. This includes all fixtures and training at all venues – Government facilities and Schools. This is very disappointing for the entire Rugby community but is again a reminder of the world we currently live in. We will continue to keep the entire Valley Fort Community updated with information on the possible return to Rugby activities as soon as the information is received.

I encourage all players to maintain a level of fitness, if possible, runs, hikes, bodyweight exercises etc and hopefully we will be back out on the pitches in a couple of weeks.

Stay Safe.

Justin Carroll

Director of Rugby, Valley Fort
