The AGM of Sligo RFC will be held in the Glasshouse Hotel on Friday next, May 16th at 8 pm. The meeting will report on a hectic season, both on and off the playing field.
It is probably appropriate, given the ever increasing Juvenile and Youth membership in the club, that these two sections provided the seasonâ€™s highlights, with the U-12 team winning the Connacht blitz, the U-13 team winning the Connacht Cup, and the U-14â€™s winning the Connacht Cup also. The U-18 team were victorious in the Connacht league. The club was honoured by the selection of 16 year old Aaron Spring on the Ireland Youth [U-18] side, and by the selection of Aaron, Rory Kerins and Tadgh Power on Connacht squads.
There will be a number of changes at the helm for the coming season. Outgoing President, Tom Gilligan, after two years in office, is stepping down, while current Hon. Secretary, Michael Storey, is also taking a well deserved break after three years in this position. Hon. Treasurer, Jimmy Staunton is another who is not seeking re-election, so there will be a number of new faces at the top table. Last seasonâ€™s club captain, Jamie Livingstone, has returned to his native New Zealand, so there will also be a newcomerÂ to fill this position.
All fully paid up members are entitled to attend the AGM, and given the record membership in the club at present, a very big attendance is anticipated.
