A message from our Club Captain

 
Fintan O'Sullivan
Club Captain 2018-19
Having been involved with Highfield as a player since underage, it is a great honour and privilege for me and my family to be selected as Club Captain for the coming season.. I would like to thank last seasons’ Club Captain Miah Cronin, for leading us to another great year and for his continued support.

As Club Captain, I would like to welcome all visiting players, officials and supporters to Highfield RFC this season, and of course,most of all our own loyal supporters whose presence and encouragement we players greatly appreciate.

Our rugby team would not function without a huge club effort, and I would like to thank all our club members and supporters who work tirelessly in the background to really help make the club what it is , provide an excellent platform for us players , and build a community ethos around the club.

Our objective for the coming season is to win the league and get automatic promotion into The First Division of the AIL. , we have fallen just short of this objective the last two years so we understand the challenge ahead and believe we have what is needed to achieve our goal.

I would like to thank Tim Ryan, all of the coaching staff, our team managers, our kitman and our Director of Rugby Robert Bogue for the time, effort and dedication they have put in over the past years, I look forward to working with them in the coming year. I would also like to commend our current squad, who have also shown commitment and dedication over the last number of years and I’ve no doubt will continue in that fashion for the coming season.

I would like to congratulate Dermot Godsell and Mark Franklin on becoming new President and Vice-President respectively.

The underage in Highfield RFC has always been a massive part of the club. I would like to thank all volunteers past and present who give and have given up their time in this very vital part of the club‘s development and success, a special mention to my senior team colleagues who have come up to help when they could.We hope to see more of the same in the coming season, and the very best of look of all the Youths and the Minis.

To all our generous sponsors and partners, on behalf of the club we thank you for your continued support throughout the years.

Finally,as Club Captain, I would like to wish the Juniors, Minors, U20s and the Ladies Senior Team the very best of luck for the coming season and I hope everyone can also show them their support.
