Dear Players, Parents, Sponsors, Supporters, Coaches and Officials of RSC,
Many of you have been asking what happens to Richmond in 2018 in light of the senior team’s certain last place finish in NPL2 East in 2017. We expect an announcement from FFV early this week clarifying matters of promotion/relegation for NPL Seniors and Juniors. Whilst planning for 2018 has been underway for some weeks, it cannot proceed much further until we hear from FFV.
In order to have the club fully engaged in 2018, there will be an Information Night for all interested on Thursday August 31 at 6pm at the Clubhouse (Kevin Bartlett).
It should be noted, that:
We signed our 3-year NPL licence agreement, which included promotion/relegation on the basis that a review of NPL would be complete by July 2017. This review is set to begin in September. FFV management are aware of this.True to our stated aim for 2017, no less than 13 of previous year’s juniors represented RSC at senior level.Our juniors continue their steady improvement, with three of the five teams in the top half of the table, with the other two in top 2/3rds.
Dave Foster
President, RSC
