A Message from the CURUFC Captains
CURUFC Men’s Captain—2018
To be selected as Captain for CURUFC for 2018/19 is an enormous honour. My teammates have put a lot of trust in me by selecting me for this momentous task. With that comes great responsibility.
As we all know, the history of the club is significant. Throughout the amateur era, it was one of the world’s best breeding grounds for international players and many great players have played in the light blue and white hoops. Professionalism has changed the landscape in which we operate and we now face substantial challenges, as the sustainability of the club is unsecure.
It has taken a lot of hard work by selfless individuals to put the club in the great position it is now. With two wins in the last two years, we are now in a great position to secure the future of the club. Many people have gained a huge amount from CURUFC over a number of years. Apart from the memories made and friendships built, many ex-players have benefitted from career opportunities because of this great institution.
The players of 2016, 2017 and 2018 have all committed to securing the future of the club through donating to the Red Lion 150 campaign. We recognize the value that this experience adds to our lives and we are fully dedicated to making sure that the generations to come will also benefit from this great Club for many decades to come.
CURUFC Women’s Captain—2018
The support the women’s team has received from the Club since our integration in 2014 has been pivotal to the development of the side. The growth of strength and conditioning, physio and coaching provision has enabled us to achieve success both in the BUCS championships and Varsity Matches over recent years.
The players that have been at the heart of the team are all incredibly supportive of the Campaign and the need to ensure sustainability within the club. This is an important time, potentially defining the clubs future, as we seek to maintain the professionalism and high standards with which the club operates.
Personally, I feel privileged to be associated with such a historic yet forward looking institution. The memories I have made in my time at the club ensure that when I graduate I will continue to contribute to guarantee new club members can share in these valuable opportunities.
The women’s team at CURUFC really do appreciate your contributions and thoughts about the ways in which the club can continue to maintain a progressive, developmental outlook. We value your generosity that has provided us with such a unique playing experience, enabling us to be a part of the clubs extensive history.
Thank you for your continued support.
