In my six years at the College, we have been National Champions twice and have now delivered some more silverware in our first season in men’s football. The students deserve all the credit for their tireless work every day in training. They work hard six days a week and fully commit their time and effort and this is nothing more than they deserve. I’d like to thank everyone who came to show their support to this fantastic group of young men. What a night and one we will always remember.”
