As Chairman of your club I was honoured and pleased to be at the Orkney Sports Awards for 2021 held in the Kirkwall Arts Theatre last Friday night (28 January 2022). It was a very well organised and conducted event and the introduction material contained several references to ORFC members which was very pleasing.
Also I was a proud to be at an event where so many of our Club members, coaches and teams were nominated. All of them were worthy contenders and they are all much valued by ORFC.
Those ORFC teams and members nominated were:
However sport, by its very nature, can be a cruel environment in which to operate because more often than not there can only be one team or person who will be the winner at the end of any contest.
On the park, or in the stadium, an individual or team can decide to change tactics, raise their game, do something unexpected, etc to make a difference to the score and outcome of their game before the final whistle blows, but individuals and teams cannot influence an awards decision in the same way because it is the judges who make the call and decide the final outcome.
Suffice to say that regardless of results, which you can read about elsewhere, I was proud of every one of our Orkney Rugby Club members listed at this awards ceremony as they, and their coaches, are all a credit to our Club. As indeed are every one of our club members and supporters - playing and non-playing – and our sponsors. They are all a credit to, and very much valued by, ORFC.
Chair of ORFC
Training resumed in the new year and everyone came back with the batteries recharged and ready to go. Training has been going well and the team were feeling confident, however not complacent as we have not played Fraserburgh before so there was a little feeling of anticipation of the unknown.
