Neath secretary Mike Price has thanked Simon King following his decision to step down as coach –
On behalf of the players and supporters of Neath RFC, I’d like to record our sincere thanks to Simon for all he has done in possibly the most trying circumstances under which any Neath RFC coach has ever had to operate.
The fact he has managed to stick to his task as long as he has really speaks volumes for the good rugby man that I always knew him to be – a lesser man would have crumpled before now.
I know he does not judge Neath RFC and its people on the last few months and the last weeks in particular – as a Club, we obviously have big hurdles ahead of us.
Values in the Game are evidently not what they were and we all wish Simon every success in the future – any Club which secures his services will acquire a good rugby man.
