Creggs RFC: New Connacht Ambassador appointed




Connacht Rugby recently announced the Player/Club Ambassador Programme for the 2019/2020 season. Creggs RFC welcomes Stephen Fitzgerald, who joins Creggs’ and Connacht’s own Denis Buckley as our Connacht Player/Club Ambassadors.

  This is the third year of the Player Ambassador Programme and its aim is to build on relationships that exist between the playing squad and grassroots rugby in the province.

  Clare native Fitzgerald plays primarily as a full-back, but can also play on the wing. Fitzgerald made his debut for Connacht against Ulster in 2018. He also represents Shannon in the All-Ireland League. He has been capped at U-20 level for Ireland.

  Connacht Rugby extended Denis Buckley’s contract earlier this year, which sees him remain at his home province until at least the end of the 2020-21 season.

  The Roscommon native has made well over 160 appearances for Connacht since making his debut as an Academy player in 2011.
