PITCH MAINTENANCE PROGRAMME 2019

Please note that our closed season pitch maintenance programme starts on Monday 29th April. Work will start on the Flood Lit Pitch (2nd XV Pitch) so will not be in use until further notice. This work includes essential works including drainage, ground repair, sand, feed and seed. SO PLEASE KEEP OFF! Thanks for your support in making sure pitches are NOT used during Summer pitch works. The 1st XV and 3rd XV pitches will continue to be usable until further notice, so watch this space.

SENIOR / COLTS TRAINING - 2019/20 Season!

For the new season OCs will be running a 1st XV and The Archers (a 2nd XV) with occasional Vets matches. Coaches will be Alan Roberts and Marc Thomas. Senior Training (17+) is every Tuesday and Thursday for rugby related fitness with ball skills. NEW PLAYERS OF ALL ABILITIES WELCOME. New Season Start date Tuesday 2nd July 2019.

ABUSE OF MATCH OFFICIALS-SANCTIONS 2018: ALL PLEASE NOTE

Please read and note the latest letter from Warwickshire RFU Disciplinary Committee which sets out increased sanctions. Everyone should read this - not just PLAYERS but SPECTATORS and COACHES as well. PLEASE THINK ABOUT IT: SPECTATORS (you know who you are) BARRACKING FROM THE TOUCHLINE CAN INCITE THE PLAYERS. The officials do a difficult job and without them we would not be playing rugby - remember regardless of what you think they are always right - just accept it and quietly walk away. If you get carded you are letting down your team, even more so if you pick up a ban which is now likely to be extremely lengthy so READ about it HERE TAKE IT IN in and REMEMBER IT DURING THE GAME - do not let down your team and club.
