Good news for Pare Plim

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Rex Am­bler says the hard work starts now.

The chair­man of Pare­mata Plim­mer­ton Rugby Foot­ball Club was de­lighted with the news last Fri­day that his club would be in the 14-team Swin­dale Shield next sea­son.

It’s Pare­mata Plim­mer­ton’s first foray back into the top grade since 1986.

‘‘It’s taken a while and a lot of work,’’ he said. ‘‘We pro­duced a good doc­u­ment to present to the [Wellington Rugby] union and we’ve got there.

‘‘A lot of peo­ple have helped. But the hard work does be­gin now – we have to get out into our com­mu­nity to tell them that there’s two premier clubs in Porirua now, and put to­gether a com­pet­i­tive premier side.’’

Each of the 14 premier clubs will also field at least one age team in a very com­pet­i­tive colts com­pe­ti­tion.

The Swin­dale Shield starts with a gala day on March 21.
