A message from Frank Cooper, Club President, 2022/23

It is an honour and privilege to have been elected as President of Highfield RFC for the 2022/23 season and I look forward to representing Highfield at every level.

I wish to extend a very warm welcome to all visiting Clubs, their supporters, Match Officials and all past & present members to Woodleigh Park.

To our Club Captain David O’Connell, along with our senior squad members, our senior coaching staff Conor Quaid and David Lee, I wish them every success on the playing field.

I would also like to wish every team at all levels in Highfield along with their Management and Coaches a successful and injury free season. All new members, young and old and their families - you are all very welcome to Highfield. I hope that your time here will be an enjoyable and memorable one.

The continuing generosity of all our sponsors helps ensure that our Club strives on and off the pitch. On behalf of Highfield I would like to thank each one of our sponsors for their continued support over the last number of years and in particular our main Club Sponsor, STS Group to whom we are extremely grateful.

To all our Volunteers who, so generously donate their time, to ensure that all the clubs facilities are in place I say “thank you”. The work which you carry out does not go unnoticed and is valued.

Since the end of the last season, members will observe that significant redevelopments of the main pitch have taken place along with the installation of a new draining and irrigation system. This was an enormous task to have undertaken and I’m delighted we have it in place for the coming season.

To our outgoing President Caroline Lyons, I would like to thank you for your contribution to Highfield RFC during the last two years. This was made more challenging due to Covid restrictions . To Richard Stokes our new Vice President, I look forward to working with you during the coming season.

Finally, I hope to see you all in the Club House after the games and enjoy some Highfield hospitality.

Yours in Rugby.

Frank Cooper
President 2022/23
