As we all know the Lansdowne FC network doesn’t just extend to Dublin or even Ireland. Many members are making their mark worldwide so we thought we’d take a little time out to catch up with some of them and what they are up to.
First up Alan Scanlan. See below some words from Alan who now lives in Hong Kong and runs a company called Earned Athletic Apparel.
“I played at Lansdowne for 5 seasons and absolutely loved every minute of it. From playing with an incredible bunch of lads on the J2/J3 squads to the pinnacle of my rugby career – our trip to South Africa. Lots of life long friends were made on that tour and even though a lot of the lads have moved on to different places all over the world, we still keep in touch.
My whole business ethos is based around, networking, connections and relationships – being around the club and more so the people involved definitely helped hone those skills!
My family business have been importing goods from the Far East since 1973, so I am very lucky to come from a very strong business background, with a lot of experience in dealing with the Asian market place.
Over my eight years in the family business I worked with all four brothers & sisters at different stages, as well as my father. Although challenging at times, this experience has been absolutely critical in setting up my own companies in Hong Kong.
Earned Athletic Apparel was successfully launched on December 9th with Ed & Ant Haynes – the “fittest man in China”. Earned was born through the vision of athletes and coaches paving the way for CrossFit in Asia. We are a group of individuals investing in our fitness journey, hoping to inspire you to invest in yourself. Because, YOU EARNED IT.
Earned is being constantly built & refined through the experience of athletes. It is a brand inspired by forward thinking individuals, looking to continuously innovate & enhance the training experience.
Earned apparel provides quality functional fitness attire, that represents our basic beliefs for success passion, hard-work & constantly seeking improvement not only in training, but in everyday life.
With the launch of Earned I’d like to offer everyone at the club a 10% discount on the full range.
