Saturday (28th August) saw the annual Season Ticket Holders BBQ take place at the Stoop and once again it proved to be an enjoyable event for everyone who attended.
Season Ticket holders, old and new, got the opportunity to meet the Quins squad, including summer signings Dafydd James, Steve So'oailo and Maama Molitika, in addition to club captain Andre Vos and the fans favourites Ugo Monye, Ace Tiatia and Simon Keogh. Many autographs were collected on a wide variety of Quins memorabilia!
Quins Managing Director Tony Copsey thanked everyone for attending and for their continued support of the club. He also highlighted how important the next 12 months is for Quins off the field, due to the exciting proposals the club have for developing the West stand, pending the approval of planning permission from the local council.
Chief Executive and Director of Rugby Mark Evans introduced the new members of the squad and gave his thoughts about the season ahead. He also confirmed that the club had signed Samoan lock forward Opeta Palepoi to replace the injured Jim Evans.
As ever, the highlight of the afternoon proved to be the fashion show, featuring the likes of Monye, Jeremy Staunton, Luke Sherriff, George Harder and Kai Hortsmann all modelling the new seasons merchandise range!
During week commencing 22nd April Harlequins will launch an innovative, new Membership Scheme which will replace the existing Season Ticket Holder Programme. Further details of the scheme will be announced in due course.
