Can YOU help?

CAN YOU HELP? Thanet Wanderers RFC has been approached by Levin Wanderers RFC proposing a player exchange between the two clubs. Levin Wanderers is located in the coastal town of Levin on New Zealand's North Island in the Horowhenua region about an hour north of Wellington. Levin Wanderers is a grassroots club and the province competes in the second tier national Heartland Rugby competition. Carlos Spencer is a native of Levin. The proposal would provide opportunities for players of both clubs to experience life and Rugby in another country and to develop their skills and become better players. The players would travel to play in their 'off' season with the 'Kiwi' players arriving in the UK in September and staying until March. This would add another two of three top ambitious performers to Thanet's squad whilst those Wanderers who travel to New Zealand for their season will, it is hoped, return as better players. The hosting club is required to provide accommodation for the guest players and to seek out and provide employment for them during their stay. It is in this area that Thanet Wanderers committee is looking for assistance. Could you or someone you know accommodate or provide employment for one of the guest players during their stay? Please reply to Director of Rugby NEIL ARMSTRONG on 01843 865819 or e-mail
