WFC President’s Message
I am delighted and honoured to be elected President of Wanderers Football Club for the season 2014-2015. It is a great privilege and I look forward to the year ahead. Given that my dad, Bill Tector, played for Wanderers and was capped for Ireland in the mid fifties, my rugby club of choice was always going to be Wanderers.
The Club had a wonderful season last season with the 1st XV and 2nd XV winning their respective Leinster League titles and with the 1st XV going unbeaten in the AIL qualifiers they insured the Club’s return to the top flight after an absence of two years.
We are extremely lucky to have Greg Lynch, Stephen Aboud and Roly Meates looking after our senior squad while Bevan Cantrell continues to the lead the coaching of the 2 XV. Noel Rabbitte and John Roche-Kelly look after the management of the 1st XV and 2nd XV ably assisted by Greg Hopkins, Gavin Maguire, Conal MacMahon and Peter Noble. At Junior level we are indebted to Erol Aykan, Trevor Cloak, Gerald Kelly and Ruadhan Kenny for all the work done at J3 and J4 level and to Mark Kinlan and Dan O’Sullivan at under 20 level.
