CONGRATULATIONS ORSON JAMES
Congratulations to former SCC Rugby Academy player Orson James who had his first game with the Exeter Chiefs last week. Orson was one of the first children to join the Academy back in 2012 when we first started, playing in the 2004 cohort. He played with the Academy for a couple of years, before moving back to Wales with his family. He continued to have a very successful rugby career at the schools level (he was named man of the match at the Welsh Schools & Colleges Bowl League Final), before being selected to play for the Wales U18s. He is now signed up with the Exeter Chiefs whilst he attends Exeter University.
LIGHT SNACKS AT DEMPSEY
Don’t forget that light snacks are now available for sale at the F&B Hut at Dempsey. You will now be able to buy muffins, sandwiches and hot dogs to go with your coffee! Please note that it is CASH ONLY or you can sign on your account if you are a Singapore Cricket Club member.
As rugby and touch get back into the swing of things, with the lifting of the restrictions from the past two years, we are very excited to be taking part in many tournaments and friendly games with our fellow junior clubs. If your team is taking part in games, we would kindly ask that you ensure that your child is wearing their full and up-to-date kit. They must wear the latest playing jersey/touch top that they were given which have our sponsors latest logos on them. Please keep the old tops with the old logos just for training.
Our sponsors have generously stood by us during the past 2 years, and we need to honour their contribution and support by wearing the tops that they have sponsored for us.
With the recent rainy conditions, please make sure you check our Facebook page for the status of training if there is heavy rain, and/or thunder and lightning.
