Southend Rugby Club’s New International Recruit: Thanks to Ferndale

Posted on 24 January 2006
An unexpected ‘spin-off’ of the relationship of Sopot Baptist Church (Poland) and Ferndale Baptist Church was the appearance of Krystian Lubinski on the wing for Southend Rugby Club Second XV last weekend!

At the request of Pastor Kryzystof, the church were able to invite Krystian and his father, Jan, to Southend so that they put their building skills to good effect. When they arrived on Friday 13th it was discovered Krystian played for one of the best polish rugby teams, Arka Gdynia, and was hoping to get some ‘training’. The club was contacted, Krystian went to training on Thursday and impressed sufficiently that he went straight into the second team who won 20-6 at Staines on Saturday. His ambitions raised, Krystian hopes to make the first XV before he returns home!
