Michael was delighted to be present for the first ever match of the newly-created Swanley Rugby Football Club with a friendly against Sheppey RFC.
As a keen supporter of rugby he is pleased to lend support and congratulated all concerned with this new venture. After meeting the team and officials Michael said:
‘This club is a community, right from kick-off. Encouraging active lifestyles, particularly among the young, with teamwork, friendship and loyalty – these things are so important. It can take a rugby club to bring people together; businesses, children of different ages and backgrounds, and families.
I want to congratulate everyone who has made this happen: your Chairman and Committee, the coaching team, players and first aiders, the sponsors, Swanley Town Council and all those who support the team at home and away. I look forward watching the progress of the Club through the season and wish them the very best of luck in the future.’
