The Rye Football Netball Clubs Annual General Meeting was held at the Clubrooms on Wednesday night December the 6th. A changing of the guard, with the great Mick O’Rourke, retiring after 22 years as President. The club is indebted to Mick and his work not just over the last 22 years as President, but his work around the club since 1969. Stepping into some big shoes is another club legend in Reg Chadwick. Congratulations Reg, who now becomes the 6th President in the club 78th year.
