Rugby Round UP!!

Posted Thursday August 3, 2023

This week we acknowledged another one of our up and coming home grown girls. It was a pleasure to present Milly Corcoran with her player pin as she took the field on Monday afternoon for her last game of club rugby for this 2023 campaign.

Milly started her playing career at Albion and is following in her Mum's footsteps with rugby in her blood. Her cousins are equally as inspiring!

Awesome job Milly ? we love watching you work hard week by week.

SPC rugby club and community would publicly like to acknowledge the amazing and generous Hugo Trust who, through their generous donation have enabled us to secure this fantastic scoreboard, the container and the generator that runs the board.

A big thank you too, our friends at Beatties who donated the trailer - amazing!

Father & son duo Steve & Justin Evans also contributed a great deal of time & energy to this project. Equally, our other generous sponsors enabled the mahi to get this off the ground. These local business are named on the scoreboard - please support them where you can.

Thanks to this combined team effort!
