Well, it looks as though the sun is going to turn it on for our big day this Saturday, we are up against Clifton and it’s Old Timers Day. The Social Committee has worked hard securing a music package to ensure everyone can rock on well into the night.
Last week our Premiers managed to scrape through with a one-point win but looked strong in the second half and could have quite easily won by more. However, to get a one-point win over any NPOB team is a job well done.
Our Div 1 and Colts teams are building with confidence and increasing player numbers each week. The team spirit in both camps is good with the fellas enjoying their rugby, and it is only a matter of time before the results will follow.
The Div 2 fellas had a good trip away to Patea and managed to get 16 players on the field. The result did not go their way but they had one hell of a good time on the bus. They have a bye this week due to Spotswood pulling out but don’t worry they are going to be involved in Old Timers Day and I am sure you will hear them cheering.
This week our Premiers saw the return to training, and hopefully a return to the 22, for several of our injured players with Nathaniel Peters, Issac Kneepkens, Santana Marshall and Reuben Mcleod all back training at 100% this week. Also, we have been told that Jacob Kneepkens has been released for 40 mins of play so we look forward to welcoming Jacob back into the Blue and White hoops.
I cannot wait to see who the Coaches put in what positions this week, it should make for an exciting brand of footy.
The Social Committee has put a lot of work into this Saturday’s entertainment and we want to pack the Chook House out so be sure to invite all your friends along for a good old-fashioned Club party. Anyone and everyone are welcome..
Most of you would have seen we now have a shipping container with rooms at halfway. When finished two thirds will house a corporate box. The corporate box will be available to hire during home games and comes with a hospitality package. The other third is our live stream production centre, looked after by the Riddlez team, and we are lucky enough to have Kevin Gledhill as commentator to add to a particularly good live streaming product and in my mind, it is up there with Sky Sports.
Be sure if you cannot make the game this weekend "Click Here" and like our Facebook page and the game will come up on your feed when the live stream goes live so you can still see the Egmont Seeds Premiers in action.
We have had a few questions about Club Clothing so please Click Here or go into Kingsway Menswear to order. We only have umbrellas and a few hats for sale at the club.
The Premiers are also still selling Beanies to raise money for their season. I am told they are only a couple of weeks away but be sure to hit Dan Johanson, the Premier Manager, up if you would like one.
Registrations for Junior Rugby are all but closed off but if you have a child or grandchild that wants to play be sure to get them registered in the next few days with Darryn Jones 027 801 1729.
Social memberships are now due. You can pay your subscription over the top bar.
I look forward to catching up with you all on Saturday and hearing all those Good Old Days stories.
Your Chairperson Scott Siffleet, Blue and White for life
