It gives me great pleasure to welcome all players, supporters and officials to Ashbrook this year.
It is a massive honour to have been appointed as club captain for the 2016/17 season. I have big boots to fill in taking over from Conor Hayes who had a great season last year topping it off with some caps for the Leinster Juniors. Their has been massive work done in the background this year by the players and coaches.
Pre-season was tough and the players are chomping at the bit to do well this season and hopefully bring some success back to the club. On a personal note, I have had some great memories playing through the underage structures at Coolmine RFC with the likes of Alan Mullen, Sean Lee and the two Connolly brothers coaching me from a young age.
It's testament to them and the other underage coaches in the club that so many us are now playing on the four senior teams and are enjoying rugby more than ever. I would encourage all family, friends and supporters to come up as much as they can and cheer on all teams this season.
Yours in Rugby
Club Captain 2016/17
