I would like to start by thanking all supporters who have been brilliant in backing the players, coaches and team management during what has been a very difficult period.
I would also like to pay tribute to all the local clubs who have loaned players to Neath Rugby on permit to make it possible to field a team over the last month or so.
I would particularly like to thank Simon King, Paul James and Paul Williams for their efforts as a coaching team, along with Chalky as Team Manager. These guys have had an uphill battle on their hands since the issues started with the club and have displayed great leadership within the club in these very difficult circumstances.
It has been a real challenge for the coaches and Chalky to put a team on the field with only 12 Neath Rugby players being able to train and to be available for selection, alongside numerous guest players playing on permit each week.
Finally, many thanks to Tom our kit man who has looked after us so well.
I’m speaking on behalf of all the players when I say that these are great men and coaches and that they will be a huge loss to us as a club.
I would also like to personally thank them for installing me as club captain and believing in me.
Thank you boys👍🏻
