Message from the Chairman

Posted by Aberavon RFC on 20/05/2018

Now that the season has been concluded congratulations to the winners of the players awards from the function last Friday and in particular Lee Purnell who swept the board with a handful of awards.

Congratulations also to both Rhys Henry and Jordan Walters on winning Under 20’s Wales caps during the season and to Jacob Flynn and Mike Wilson on their selection for Wales 7’s.

Reflecting back on what’s been a disjointed and long season it’s obvious that our final league position is disappointing. Whilst it was expected to be a season of transition there were a number of games where we came up short although that is no reflection of the effort put in by all squad and the coaching team.

So time to rest up for a few weeks and for the boys to recharge the batteries and look forward to a hugely important season next up, every club will be looking at this from the same angle so without doubt it’s the biggest season in the divisions history, one that will see at least four and possibly five teams relegated. Our goal will be a fast start for sure.

So thanks to absolutely everyone involved as always, to all the players/ coaches/support staff/volunteers/ and all supporters and sponsors a sincere message of thanks and enjoy your break, we will return a stronger and better side for this season’s experience.

Thanks for your support and help everyone.

Andrew
