Off Season Update

A number of changes have occurred over the summer. Robin Slade stepped down as club president as did club secretary, Robyn Slade and club treasurer, Vatsal Patel. Although the former president and secretary have remained on committee to ensure smooth progress in the running of the club.

WUCS or UWSC has been disbanded after eight year. It would be fair to say that the board was initially proactive in supporting the clubs that formed it initially, for Unicol the relationship became fractious and untenable in the last few years. The club will now deal directly with the University with a new Service Level Agreement.

The club once again supplied referees for the summer 6-a-side competition run by the University. Disappointingly though club players did not step up to help out as much as needed. This has prompted the committee to review the process and reconsider where the money earned is spent as the club cannot justify tagging money for squads that then do not step up when needed.

The new season begins March 30, we expect to have the same number of squads as last year and host the after-match at the Ruakura Campus Club.
