The Youth Kit Sponsors Evening And Our Trophy Presentation

On Thursday 17th April, the Youth Kit Sponsors Evening was held once again in the Tony Ingham Suite. We were told by Steve Brown that over ¬£3,600 had been raised this time. “We were able to purchase several laptops for the Scholars which has helped enormously with assisting with their studies at Harlington.” After Steve Brown spoke about each player individually, they later presented their kit sponsor with a gift.

Mark Prince made an emotional speech and Pat Harrison spoke on behalf of the late Ron Bannister. His family had sponsored Antonio German in memory of Ron, the former Chairman of the Official Supporters Club. Big Dave kindly sponsored our trophy this time and he presented the Kiyan Prince Youth Team Player of the Year award to Romone Rose on behalf of the Independent R’s. I would once again like to thank the Club for allowing us to make the presentation on the night, which seemed more appropriate with most of the Saturday morning regulars present. Well done Romone.

Reflecting on the evening, Steve Brown later said: “When Keith and I arrived here at the start of the Season we hit the ground running and didn’t know any of the boys, their families or the fans that turn up every weekend to watch the youth teams in action. This was a great opportunity for both of us to meet some of the people that support us every week and a chance to say thank you, not just for the sponsorship they give, but for the fact they come to Harlington every weekend and also travel away to show their support for the youngsters at this club. I now know who the ‘Saturday Morning Crew’ are and I can put names to faces !”

Lastly I would like to thank Terry Springett for organising such an enjoyable evening for us.

  1. A great evening Steve.The speech by Mark Prince was very emotional and humbling, as was speaking with him.
