Dear Nomads Family,
As the year draws to a close, it is with great pleasure and pride that we reflect on the 2023 rugby season. Despite a few challenges along the way the club has continued to thrive and excel on and off the field as the highlights below demonstrate
As we turn the page to 2024, we would be remiss not to thank our outgoing board members and indeed the entire leadership team of the club for their contributions over the past year.
For those of you unaware the club held its Annual General Meeting in mid-November with a new group of passionate and dedicated Nomad volunteers putting their hands up to continue to lead us forward.
In a first for the club, this year we are thrilled to welcome back two former presidents to assume leadership of the club in co-president roles. Ashley Rycroft and Steve Darley are excited to share this responsibility. Steve brings five years of prior experience as president and together with Ashley’s successful term they bring a wealth of experience and dedication to our leadership team. As devoted Nomads (collectively played for the club for over 30 years!), both Steve and Ashley are committed to navigating our club through the unique challenges we currently face.
While we are all aware of the upcoming disbursement of funds from the sale of Fletcher’s Fields, it has to be noted that the club’s vision is to invest in infrastructure and working to secure a sustainable long-term future. As such our month-to-month and year-to-year operations will continue to rely on the generosity of our sponsors, our fundraising efforts and the continued support of our community as a whole. Ashley, Steve & the entire board are excited about the challenges ahead and the opportunities they present for growth and improvement, and we are committed to steering the Nomads toward an even brighter future.
2024 Board of Directors
As we wrap up the year, let’s come together as a Nomads family to celebrate the holiday season. May this festive time bring joy, laughter, and well-deserved rest to each and every one of you. The support and camaraderie within our club make us stronger, and we’re eager to see what the future holds for our club as we begin our 75th anniversary ramp up!
Wishing you all a joyful holiday season and a fantastic start to 2024!
