Southwell Rugby Club winds up centenary celebrations

A rugby club is winding up their centenary celebrations and their chairman released a statement about the year so far.

Southwell Rugby Club was founded in 1922 and over the last twelve months, the club has celebrated the milestone.

"What a year it’s been," said the club chairman Andrew Smith.


"We started with Running and cycling for charity and ended with an amazing ball and fun day.

"We packed in so much in between but all good things must come to an end.

"I’d like to take the opportunity to firstly thank our outgoing President, Charlie Anstey.

"Charlie has dedicated himself to the club over the last few decades and whilst he’s not planning on going anywhere, he decided to pass on the baton.

"His passion and dedication to the club over the years has been remarkable.

"We welcome in our new President, Conrad Hunt, who I’m sure will attack the role with as much passion as Charlie.

"Whilst it makes me immensely proud to be Chairman of Southwell, I couldn’t do it without the support of both my family and the huge team of volunteers around me.

"They give up their time for what is a special club.

"I’m very much looking forward to the start of the new season which is now only weeks away.

"There is no doubt that both our Juniors and Seniors will continue to grow and develop over the coming season, and I wish them all every success.

"Ultimately the club’s ethos will always be about fun and enjoyment and creating a facility for the whole community to enjoy."
