Well the dust hasn’t settled long on the 17/18 season but we’re already looking ahead to next!
Changes are afoot in the Mayfield think tank.
The club has galvanised after the reeling sting of missing out on Super 6 and is looking ahead to a possible future expansion to super 8! So what are we doing off the field to move to that goal.
Well several things in fact!
We have established a blossoming new relationship with Abertay University, that will see them supporting the club in various different roles.
The Crown and the Stag have combined, but not in a Robert Baratheon sort of way. Morgan Rugby Club and Dundee HSFP combine forces to welcome a new dawn in Dundee Rugby. Hopefully more playing opportunities and shared resource will see this venture as a success.
Colin Sangster has completed his level 4 coaching badge, making him one of the most qualified coaches in the country and a real asset to the club and the city.
Bill Campbell has committed to becoming our first ever Business Development Manager! Bill has been involved, with great success, on the commercial side of the club for some time and with this new role will no doubt increase his positive influence.
And we all love social media, so we’ve upped our game here too. Bringing in the vastly experienced Holly Good to steer the ship through our social media expeditions and press releases.
Hopefully we don’t have to follow Geo’s snapchat to find out whats happening anymore!
And last but not least the club captain for 2018/19 has been announced. And we are pleased to report that Fraser McKay fills the void left by outgoing skip Duncan Leese.
Great praise must go to Duncs, who asked in parting that we pull together as a club to move forward into a new era. Thank you for your commitment and unwavering enthusiasm last year Dunc. We know we are in good hands both on and off the pitch with Fraser and wish him all the best for the upcoming season.
We hope everyone associated with the club will welcome our new recruits and are looking forward to the new season getting underway. See you at Mayfield
