Following the success of previous years, Neath Rugby Supporters Club are today proud to launch the 2016 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, Shane Williams, Martyn Davies, Rees Stephens, Ron Waldron, Kevin Phillips and current coach Gareth Llewellyn.
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.
There’ll be no shortage of candidates spread across the decades. The likes of Courtney Meredith, Allan Bateman, Paul Thorburn 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.
How to nominate
You can make your nomination in a number of ways:
On this website – Leave a comment under this article
On Twitter – tweet us @neathsupporters
On Facebook – Visit us on Facebook and leave a comment on the Hall of Fame thread
E-mail – Send your nomination to email@example.com
In person – Visit our table in the clubhouse on match days and fill in the nomination form.
You can nominate as many individuals as you like before the closing date later in the season. The final inductees will then be chosen by a panel of Supporters Club members and then be formally inducted at the Hall of Fame celebration evening at the end of the season (date to be confirmed).
So get your thinking caps on and let us know who you would like to see in the 2016 Hall of Fame.
