Captains Message

GRFC Senior Captain’s Address

I would like to welcome you all to Dr.Hickey Park for the 2017-18 season. It is a great honour to have been asked to Captain the
Senior Squad for coming season.

I would like to congratulate Fran Nolan on becoming the new President and wish him the best for the coming season. Also, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing President, Jerome O’Brien for a great year.

Last season we achieved our goal of Winning Division 2B and gaining promotion to Division 2A. It came down to the wire between
us and a strong Armagh side, with our superior point’s difference being the deciding factor.
For the 2017-18 season we will look to build on last season’s success and take on the challenges of Division 2A.

I’d like to welcome back all the coaching staff and the backroom staff who along with myself are looking forward to seeing the continued success of this young team. I would like to wish the Woman’s, Juniors and the u20’s teams all the best for the coming
season.

I would also like to acknowledge our generous sponsors and to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support throughout the year.
I look forward to seeing you all in the members bar throughout the coming season.

Dan Mannion, Club Captain 2017/18
