Last night the Villager FC administration hosted a function to say thanks to our sponsors and suppliers (our partners) this past season. The club cannot operate without the generous assistance of these companies and individuals and the evening was most enjoyable. Ross Calow (past Villager 1XV) from ABV Brands kindly sponsored a whisky-tasting evening where Macallan, Highland Park and Laphroaig whiskys were enjoyed. The presenters were most informative and much was learnt about whisky and the enjoyment of whisky. A big thanks to all our sponsors and suppliers from the Villager FC – the club is on a new journey and we need our partners to accompany us as we walk this road.
Just a reminder that we play against Violets this Friday 19 August 2016 with the first match kicking off at 18:30 and the 1XV at 21:00. Also, the clubhouse will be geared for the Test Match between the Springboks and Argentina on Saturday 20 August 2016, so come down to the club in your green-and-gold for Allister Coetzee’s first match of the Rugby Championship.
In closing, and sadly, the club informs you of the passing away of Sydney Schwormstedt a past member of the Villager FC from the late 1960s. A keen sportsman, Sydney played rugby for the Villager FC and also represented South Africa in judo. Our sincere condolences to the family during this sad and difficult time.
