Message from the Club Captain – Darren Horan

It is a huge honour to be appointed club captain of Old Wesley Rugby Club for a second consecutive season. First of all I would like to welcome all players, supporters and visiting teams to Donnybrook for what is sure to be another exciting season of rugby.

On behalf of the club I would like to take the opportunity to welcome all new players and coaches; I have no doubt that you will experience the same hospitality and friendliness that I have received over the past six seasons. I would like to offer a special welcome to incoming coaches Patrick Collins, Cian O’Connor and Alan Large. I am confident their combined experience and dedication will contribute to a successful season for the senior squad. On a personal note I would like to thank Derek Wallace for the hard work he put into the squad over the past number of years and I hope you enjoy your well-deserved time off.

To all our teams, I congratulate you on an enormously successful 2016/2017 season; it was great to see so many teams throughout the club bring silverware back to the newly renovated clubhouse in the later stages of the season. I wish you a successful and enjoyable 2017/2018 season and hope to see many of you around the club throughout the year.

To our sponsors, particularly our primary sponsor, Savills, we sincerely appreciate your invaluable support to the club. Your generous contributions allows the club to compete and succeed at all levels, and is very much appreciated.

The commitment and hard work that goes on behind the scenes here is what makes Old Wesley a truly special club. The support we receive each season is hugely appreciated and is a point of inspiration for the senior XV. Therefore to all volunteers and supporters, I would like to offer huge thanks.

Finally, I would like to thank last year’s president David Pierce for the dedication and commitment he showed throughout the season to all teams. I congratulate incoming president Paul Short on his appointment and I wish him a successful season within the role.
