Oh Captain My Captain

New Season and a new captain at Mayfield. Allow us to introduce you to our new skip.
Name: Duncan Leese
Position: Fly Half, Centre, Utility Back
DOB – 13/05/96
Started playing rugby for High School of Dundee aged 10, before going on to play for the Eagle’s
DR: What does it mean to be club captain and what are your aspirations?
DL:  It is a huge honour and I am incredibly thankful to be given this opportunity to be captain of Dundee. Having been born and bred Dundee I am determined to give back to the club what it has given to me and will therefore, give this role my whole hearted commitment and energy. I hope to lead a team that can inspire rugby throughout Dundee and would love to do this with Dundee playing flowing exciting rugby at the highest level possible – Prem 1. Therefore, my ambition along with the players and all at the club is to get us there playing flowing and attractive rugby. Winning national 1 is a priority.
Yet again, I am delighted to be given the opportunity to lead Dundee and can’t wait for the season to begin.
DR Who is your favourite Dundee Player of All time?
DL:
This I find a difficult one to answer but Stuart Barlow must be up there. He was inspirational in teaching me what to do and more importantly, what not to do in life. It is now a sight to see a player of such crown pedigree thriving amongst the world’s best in NZ.
The Gifted Jonesy
Other mentions must go to the cultured left boot of Barry Jones, the leadership of Neil Dymock
and the incredible talent of Andy Dymock highlighted by his lid during his Scotland 7s days

We wish Duncan all the best for the new season and look forward to his leadership on and off the field.

An absolute mockery of a sham again. Gerry, the club Secretary and Del Boy’s mum! What a shocker. Can we have a live feed to the draw or would that be too similar to Sir Rod Stewart in the Scottish Cup?

Let’s get some new participants to break up this cartel!

Remember we’ve changed our bank, so keep up here

Lotto ch-ch-ch changes

We all love bankers, don’t we. They are forever making life that bit easier……..

For reasons known only to the Royal Bank of Scotland, to maintain a cheque facility, it has become necessary to change the Lotto bank account from a Club Savings account to a Club Business account.  The reason given was “new regulations”.  Unfortunately this means that all members Standing Orders will have to use the new account details.  I know it is a real pain-in-the-backside but I hope you will stay with us as this is an important fundraiser for the club, as well as a bit of fun.

To make things as painless as possible we have prepared Amend a Standing Order form  that the Bank assures me is accepted by all banks (this is for £10 per month, so should be changed if you are paying a different amount at the moment).  I have completed sections 2 and 3 that apply to your Standing Order.  You should complete section 1 and sign and date section 4 and then deliver the form to your bank.  The change to a Standing Order can also be done online for members who use this facility.

£10 per month (1)

Both accounts will remain open until the changeover is complete and monthly draws will continue as normal.

The new bank address is  Royal Bank of Scotland, 288 Brook Street, Broughty Ferry, DUNDEE, DD5 2AP

We hope that you get your changes made and this encourages club members not involved to try it out.

So if you fancy an extra hundie in your hippie why not give it a shot.
