Now that the season draws to a close its time for reflection, at the start of the 2018-2019 campaign all sixteen teams faced the possibility of relegation, the bottom four faced automatic relegation into the Welsh Championship and a possible play off scenario was the reward for the team that finished in 12th position, so the 2018-2019 season came with the added pressure of possible relegation for up to five teams.
I believe the environment is the most important factor in any organisation, the environment is the very foundation that underpins everything we aspire to be.
Everyone involved at Aberavon RFC continues to work exceptionally hard to maintain and improve our environment, we recognise how important it is to evolve and continually look to improve all aspects of our culture, this along with an outstanding work ethic is the main reason we have secured our place in the Principality Premiership by finishing in 6th position, a much improved position achieved in 2017-2018.
Our aim now is to ensure we prepare thoroughly for the 2019-2020 season, this starts with a well earned rest, this gives everyone time to spend some quality time with our families, I have explained the importance of our environment, without the support our families it would not be possible for us to operate to the best of our ability, I would like to personally thank all of our families for their outstanding support this season.
May I take this opportunity to thank our loyal supporters, nothing would make me happier than being able to repay your outstanding support by continuing to play some exciting rugby and who knows maybe even win some silver ware.
