Rugby club to have most important meeting since 1975

Woy Woy Rugby Club will have its most important meeting since 1975 when it meets in November, according to club president Mr Stuart McGoldrick.

In June, the club decided to compete only in the Third Grade Presidents Cup for the remainder of the season, due to the availability of players.

Mr McGoldrick said he hoped the meeting at 3pm on Saturday, November 5, would generate enough interest to save the club.

"Over the last few seasons, we have seen a steady decline in player and volunteer numbers due many factors - social and economic, time poor people with family commitments.

"The biggest impact has been Covid.

"During this period, our senior teams have struggled to stay afloat to the point that this season we started with three teams and finished with 13 players playing in President's Cup.

Mr McGoldrick said the focus of the November meeting would be deciding how to move forward in senior competition next season.

"The discussion points will be recruitment and retention of players, filling committee roles and club volunteers to help out with the seniors and juniors.

"This meeting will be the most important we have had since the club's inception in 1975 and is a chance to help shape the future of Woy Woy Rugby Club."

Mr McGoldrick said he had written to members to ask for their "help in rebuilding our fantastic club in the senior grades".

He said the outcome of the meeting would determine whether there was enough interest to save the senior grades or whether the club would have to fold.
