Welcome Message From The President

Welcome Message From the President – Willie Campbell

It is both an honour and a privilege to have been elected President of Old Wesley RFC for the 2018/19 season, thereby becoming the 100th president of this great club. On behalf of all members of our club, I extend a warm welcome to all our friends, supporters, visiting teams, match officials and sponsors to Donnybrook and Ballycorus. I hope you enjoy your visit to our club

To our newly elected club captain Paul Harte, and all players throughout the club from under 6 to the senior team, I wish you an enjoyable, successful and injury free season. I also wish our head coach Morgan Lennon, and all coaches, management and medical staff the very best of luck for this season.

A club is based on volunteers and to everyone involved I thank you for your continued support and work which is helping to strengthen our club’s position and reputation in Leinster and Ireland. There is always a job for someone, so please don’t be shy, the more people involved makes it easier and more enjoyable for everyone.

We cannot function without support from our members and sponsors. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Savills, our main club sponsor, and all our corporate supporters for their continued generosity which helps ensure our club continues to thrive both on and off the pitch. Please remember to support our sponsors if you can over the coming season.

My thanks to our Chairman Shane Gill and the Executive for all their continued commitment and hard work and to those members who have put huge effort into bringing the club to its present strong position. It really is appreciated by the whole club. Thank you also to Alan Chapman and his team for yet again producing an excellent match programme.

I would like to congratulate Philip Orr on his magnificent presidency of the IRFU in possibly one of the most successful years in Irish rugby.

I look forward to seeing you all during the season and hope you enjoy the famous Old Wesley welcome provided by our Club Manager Michael Weafer and his team. Please join me in supporting all our teams during the season both on and off the pitch.
