The Comox Valley Kickers RFC recently held their Annual General Meeting at the Fallen Alders Community Hall in Royston, the location of their current clubhouse.

President Andrew Eaton applauded the Kickers Mens and those Kickers Women who played for both the Kickers and Nanaimo on a job well done. He also thanked the executive, spouses and partners for their ongoing hard work and devotion to the club.

The future looks bright for the Kickers. An element of note was that a new disciplinary process was ratified by the members.

The newly elected executive consists of:

  • President - Andy Eaton
  • VP - Shayne Stuchberry
  • Secretary - Anita Holland
  • Treasurer - Ona Thorington
  • Director of Socials & Fundraising - Steve Hextal
  • Diirector of Sponsorships - Eli Cummins
  • Clubhouse Manager - Roc LaFort.

A wonderful meal was prepared by Shayne & Andrea of Coastal Trek Health & Fitness Resort and Konrad Nikkel, which was enjoyed by all.

Annual award winners were announced next and all were well deserved. They included:

  • Ladies Best Back - Lisa Breuer
  • Ladies Best Forward - Aimee Burley
