Following the success of the inaugural event last year, Neath Rugby Supporters Club are today proud to launch the 2015 Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame will recognise and honour individuals synonymous with Neath RFC – the legendary figures who have shown exceptional commitment and contribution to the club. This year’s inductees will follow in the footsteps of Brian Williams, Brian Thomas, Dai Morris, Steve Powell and Shane Williams who were the first to be honoured in 2014.
So who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame? Well, that is where you come in.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be asking supporters to nominate any individual who you feel will be worthy of inclusion in the Hall of Fame. They can be a player, a coach, an administrator or volunteer. Basically, any person who has shown a remarkable loyalty and commitment to Wales’ oldest rugby club.
We’ll then form a small panel of Neath Rugby Supporters Club members, who will whittle all the nominations down to a final five. These five will then be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a special celebration evening at the clubhouse on Friday 15th May.
There’ll be no shortage of candidates spread across the decades. The likes of Rees Stephens, Courtney Meredith, Paul Thorburn, Kevin Phillips, Gareth Llewellyn or maybe Adam Jones are all likely to feature in people’s thinking, but anyone who has made an outstanding contribution to Neath RFC can be nominated.
