Progress’ success crowned with glittering evening

2017-11-02 06:01

Uitenhage’s rugby pride, Progress RFC, will host its 25th annual presentation evening on Saturday at the Uitenhage Indoor Sports Centre.

“Progress’ success was so phenomenal that many of this year’s celebratory events had to make way for the club’s participation in SARU’s great nation tournament, the Gold Cup,” said Rodney Joseph, Progress RFC general secretary.

Many of the Progress players and administrators of yesteryear will be in attendance. Jeff du Preez, a founding member of the club will be the guest speaker.

“It was a great honour for the club to have been part of the national Gold Cup for a third time. Who can forget the 2006 upset of Maties? And during 2010 again reaching the second round? This year we were the Kings’ regional champions beating both Border (Old Selbornians) and SWD (Progress George),” said Joseph.

The theme for the event is appropriately named “An Evening Amongst Stars”.

Who will be the 2017 Progress Star? Will it be Moya, Lights, Jones, Gustav Meyer or Sonabo Majola?

The event will start at 18:00 and those interested in attending need to make a R150 contribution to be part of the enjoyment.
