Kandy Sports Club committee members will felicitate their outgoing president Dr. Sarath Kapuwatte, after a good scrumage with the club, at the AGM to be held on 28th June at the Lt. Gen Denzil Kobbekkaduwa pavilion. It was in 1991 that Dr. Sarath Kapuwatte took over the presidency and has been the president for the longest period. It was under him that Kandy SC won the first trophy in 1992, which took them forty long years and many good things has happened since then. He always enjoyed and has many fond memories to look back over some of the past performances, he created to strengthen and support the club.
The other member who supported Dr. Kapuwatte was none other than, Malik Samarawickrema in person and financially. Dr. Sarath Kapuwatta has held the President’s post on a number of occasions and in most of those years the club has won trophies.
An old boy of S. Thomas’ College where he excelled in boxing, had a good rugby promoter in Malik Samarawickrema who along with the committee members raised the standards and performances.
With the help of Samarawickrema they brought Kandy Sports Club to the present standard through their wide knowledge and experience. If not for Samarawickrema’s support and guidance this club would not have reached its present position. It was after his coming that this club started winning trophies.
