Wick. Home of the world’s best whisky.
The rugged, wave-lashed town of Wick is home to Old Pulteney. Since 1826, generations of seafaring distillery men have been crafting this fine whisky. ‘The Maritime Malt’ gently absorbs the sea breeze as it matures, giving a smooth, clear finish and distinctive flavour. Little wonder then that Wick is now home to ‘World Whisky of Year 2012’. The most highly-coveted tribute in Jim Murray’s celebrated Whisky Bible. Discover more about this award-winning single malt at oldpulteney.com
President’s Message Dear Rugby Supporter, Whether this is your first time at West Lodge, you are a Member or you are a regular visitor; on behalf of the Committee and Members of Whitecraigs Rugby Club, I offer you the warmest of welcomes for today’s BT National League 2 fixture, or Cup game. There is a new look to the 1st XV this season, noticeably our very own Stuart “Hendy” Henderson, a one time Whitecraigs Mini Rugby Player, is now Head Coach and deserves every support we can offer him. With Stuart we have brought through a host of home grown players and to provide a mix of youth and experience we have attracted some new faces into the senior squad to provide the strength in depth required at this level. Stuart knows the challenges of the season ahead and I know that he has meticulously planned for the next 8 months with which we wish him every success. While the 1st XV is the apex of rugby at Whitecraigs, I am extremely proud of the incredibly hard work that has been put in by our Coaches, Members and Players to have a formidable structure in place to ensure a constant supply of players to senior rugby. From Micros to Under 18’s we have an extremely dedicated group of individuals working towards a common ambition, which is excellence in playing and coaching, leading to the success of Senior Rugby. These things don’t just happen, they are made to happen and to all those concerned, who have contributed their time, I wish to thank you. The Club is not all about what happens on the rugby pitch and we are fortunate to have a group of dedicated Members ensuring that all commercial aspects of Whitecraigs are efficiently managed. In particular, the impressive list of Sponsors we can boast supporting us is no accident and has taken a huge effort to coordinate. As a result we now have a large group of Sponsors who believe and have faith in associating their brand with the success of the Club and whose patronage allows us to invest in our sport. Without them our challenge to play at this level of rugby would be almost impossible and I urge everyone to support our Sponsors’ businesses. Before you head off to the pitch to watch the game, please remember that Whitecraigs Rugby Club is a Family and Community-centred organisation; we extoll the virtues and values of rugby in sportsmanship and camaraderie, whilst respecting Players and Officials at all times. Please be raucous in your support, offer no quarter on the field and above all, show your warm hospitality in the Clubhouse, whatever the result. Come on the Mighty! Jon Jewitt President - Whitecraigs Rugby Club.
