As President of Bective Rangers FC for the 2019-2020 season, it is my great pleasure to welcome you all to Donnybrook whether you are a member, past member, parent, visitor or friend.
The club was founded in 1881 and is very proud of the contribution it has made to Irish rugby both on and off the field.
We are entering our 127th season and it is vital that we continue to encourage and manage players and to continue to get teams on the field every week of the season.
Johnny Vaughan – Club President 2019/20
May I first thank our Executive Committee, past and present, for all the work and the commitment you have shown over the years and will, I am sure, continue to show in the season ahead.
May I wish Emmett Sheridan (Director of Rugby), Billy O’Brien (Club Director), Mark O’Brien (Bar Manager) and all his staff all the best for the coming season.
In addition I would like to wish Head of Coaching (Bernard Jackman), Club Captain (Aidan Mulligan), Bag Manager (Steve Rattigan) and all the players, managers and coaches from every level, Senior, Junior, Under 20s, Vets, Youths and Minis every success. Let’s bring home some badly needed silverware this season!
My gratitude also to all the countless people who work behind the scenes to ensure the smooth running of the club.
Sincere thanks to our main sponsor H & K International and all the other sponsors this year and in previous years.
Finally let me express the wish that this season be the best supported one and please join me in the Clubhouse after the matches as often as possible for some post match analysis.
Yours in Rugby,
President, Bective Rangers F.C.
