I am deeply honoured to be President of CIYMS RFC as this great club enters its second century. Our Centenary Ball highlighted the illustrious history of this club on an evening that will live long in the memory and now is the time to look to the future. The senior teams are competitive in their leagues, the youth section is flourishing and the mini rugby section, which continues to be the envy of other clubs, attracts over 200 players on a weekly basis. Inclusivity is at the heart of this club and it is our aim to ensure that our whole community can enjoy all that this wonderful sport has to offer.

This club would not exist without its players and coaches and I would like to express my appreciation for their hard work and commitment which have contributed so strongly to the success of the club. I would also like to welcome those players and coaches who are joining us this season. We owe a great debt of gratitude to our sponsors for their unwavering financial support and to the volunteers without whom this club could not function.

I look forward to your continued support throughout this season and would ask you to contact myself or any of the committee members if you wish to become more involved by attending the pre-match lunches or volunteering a few hours of your time to help out at the club.

Ian Nelson
President of CIYMS RFC
