Volunteers Wanted!
A number of new volunteers stepped up at the AGM to fill the vacant key committee roles which we are very grateful for, but we need a raft of other members to put their names forward to volunteer to either support committee members with their designated responsibilities (e.g. help organise social events) or help out on match days (e.g. stint behind the bar, running the raffle).

Such activities may be undertaken as a regular activity or occasionally as part of a group. Please contact any committee member so we can discuss how you can help your club.

The New Season:
We are excited about next season with a number of ex-Colts returning from University to join our existing committed squad, together with some of last years’ successful Colts’ team. With such a good mix of youth and experience, we believe will challenge strongly in our league!

Granville Sellers (Granners) has been appointed as our new Head Coach and he will be assisted by ex-player James Darkins who will be Backs Coach.

Chris Chapman is continuing as Skipper and the squad will be supported by Jim Dolan and Martyn Booth as Rugby Managers.

Pre-season is due to start on Saturday 25th June at 2pm followed by an informal social.
Training will then be on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7.15pm leading up to the new season.

We will be holding our T&P 7s Tournament and BBQ on Saturday July 16th – please save the date and come down and have a run around or just a few beers. There will be teams taking part from the Junior Section as well as the Seniors (more info to come later)!

New players:
If you are interested in coming down to train and play and want to know more, then please contact Granners on 07830 857130 / granville.sellers@sky.com to find out more or just turn up to training!

For Junior Rugby (Under 5's to Under 17's) contact Andrew Wood via email, woodap@hotmail.co.uk

Fixtures for next season are out and we are in a 12-team league with our first game at home against York RI on Sat 3rd September.


There will also be a cup competition towards the end of the season.

Annual Subscriptions:
These are now payable and can be paid direct to:
Sort Code: 207842
Account Number: 40568449.

Players will be contacted directly about payment options.
Social membership is £20 and Family Membership is £30

With the club looking to bounce back from the enforced layoff, we are, as ever, looking for companies and individuals to support and sponsor the club. If you are interested, please get in touch with either our Commercial Manager Nigel Crosby or Large

Finally, if you would like to help or have any suggestions to improve the club or know anyone who may want to come down and play then please get in touch!
