Pooler awarded A Licence by WRU for 2014/2015 season

Monday 15th September 2014
 

Pontypool RFC is pleased to announce that the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) has granted the club A Licence status for the 2014/2015 season.

The A Licence, issued by the WRU, is awarded to clubs that demonstrate the ability to achieve ‘the higher standard both on and off the field’. It is mandatory for a club to be in possession of an A Licence to permit entry and participation into the WRU Principality Premiership Division.

“This is a tremendous day for Pontypool RFC, particularly for the club’s incredibly loyal supporter and volunteer base,” said Pontypool RFC Chief Executive Officer, Peter Jeffreys. “The club attaining an A Licence is a culmination of nearly three years of hard work from everybody associated with Pooler, and I am most thankful for everyone who has stood by us during this time.

“We knew this was always going to be a long term process, but having initially stabilised the club, we have steadily developed our processes and culture season by season, with the ultimate aim of achieving A Licence status for this season.

“Our focus and direction is more clear than ever, yet we know we still have a long way to go and we must continue to develop the club in the proper way, year by year, and not get ahead of ourselves.

“The Championship is an incredibly competitive division, and we must work harder than ever if we are to continue to progress. The hard work has only just begun, but above all, we hope everybody continues to have fun in the process.”

On behalf of everybody associated with Pontypool RFC, the club wishes to thank every individual who continues to contribute towards the club’s development. Pontypool RFC also extends its thanks to the supporters of the club, who have offered tremendous loyalty and patience as the club continues to develop progressively. Your support is highly appreciated.

Pontypool RFC also wishes to thank the WRU and its staff for their commitment and dedication during the A Licence application process.
