This is the place for all your Guestbook chat. Please follow these simple guidelines to keep everything running smoothly:

Please do not start New Topics - keep everything here in one place.

Please keep your signatures to 2 lines of text or less and No Pictures - it can get messy to look at really quickly otherwise

And Finally please remember this is a Family Site!
Thankyou! smile

Hi folks - welcome to the new guestbook.

You'll notice it's got some extra features so please follow the guidelines above to help us keep it running smoothly.

1st off please don't start new topics - a single Guestbook has always worked well with the quantity of messages we get, so let's try a keep it that way for the time being.

Signatures are similar to the "where in the world" bit from the old guestbook. You can put in your location, email address etc but please keep them short as it just becomes annoying otherwise.

You can add smileys by typing the code, so
becomes smile etc.

Another useful feature is that you can subscribe to be notified of new posts by email - so you don't have to check the guestbook 5 times a day to see if somebody replied to your question!

(And yes I know it's backwards compared to the previous guestbook with the old posts at the top but that's just something you'll have to get used to I'm afraid)

Membership Sec |

Hi folks, its that time of year again and memberships are now due. Forms and Fixture cards will be posted out the end of this week but I will also be at the "Give Rugby a Try Day" on Sun with membership info for all senior players and any social members wanting to pay their memberships.
On the new website you will be able to do it all online including paying your membership. We are also in process of opening a new bank account for those who wish to pay by bank transfer or standing order, details of the bank account number will be given out once received.
So looking forward to seeing you all at the club on Sunday and have your membership money with you.

Internal Rugby

Unfortunately there will not be an 'internal league' but there will be internal fixtures getting underway soon (once I get organised, and football season is out of the way, etc.)

Anyone interested in taking part in these internal games should text me on 07881 505765, and I will add you to my list of contacts. Similarly if you have recently changed your number let me know.

As with last season, the success or otherwise of these internal fixtures rests with you, the players, to respond confirming availability or otherwise, and if you have said you are available, to turn up at the allotted time. Undoubtedly I shall nag again as the season rolls on!!

The Club also requires, folk to help with refereeing, running touch, etc., etc. If you want to get involved and ensure internal rugby goes ahead, GET IN TOUCH!

All basic info about U14-U18s including training times/location & coaching team contact info is on the Youth rugby page under "The Teams" section.
