Its nearly here!!!

Finally after what seems like months (mainly because it has been) we can say the season starts this month! Unfortunately the “friendly” against Ryde for this coming Saturday has been cancelled as they are unable to raise a team. However, we have managed to arrange another “friendly” against the Hurries for next Wednesday (09.09.15). The all systems go for the league openers on Saturday 19th Sept with a home double header against Romsey. We have an exciting announcement regarding match day awards which will be made later in the week. Oh and there is a Rugby World Cup starting...

Club Update August

So what has been going on at Ventnor RFC the last few weeks? Well as always quite a bit! Pre-season is now in full swing with guys being worked hard by both Damo and Jim. With the first game only a month away the hard work really starts now. There have been some impressive displays at training and plenty of competition for places in the 1st XV Fixtures have now been confirmed for both the 1st and 2nd XV. These can be found on the Hampshire RFU website: 1st XV Fixtures 2nd XV Fixtures We also have a number of “friendlies” with the other Island based clubs starting with Ryde on 5th September 2015. The Club has also hosted both a Hampshire U15 training camp during August with the squad camping at the club over the weekend. The club also acted as the official Ventnor Fringe Festival Campsite.

Club Update July 2015

A previous Chairman used to have his Blog which I know I enjoyed reading as it kept us all up to date with matters both past, present and future. Wanting to resurrect this feature I have decided to introduce my own version but as yet I don’t have a funky name for it. Any suggestions will be greatly welcomed! So what has been happening in the world of VRFC over the last few weeks? The Wednesday night O2 Touch Rugby sessions have proven to be a great success. It has been brilliant to see whole families taking part with a fantastic mixture of players, ladies, gents, girls and boys. One nameless lady even declared on Facebook that it was “better than wine!” The final session will be held this Wednesday (8 July 2015) from 6pm with a free BBQ from 730pm as a thank you for all those that have attended. On that note I would like to thank Community Coach Rich Freeman for running the sessions and Ed Blake for stepping in last week when Rich was away on a jolly (claimed it was a Coaching Conference but we all know a jolly when we see one!) Natwest Rugby Force Weekend (27 & 28 June 2015) saw a team of volunteers take on the next stage of developing the end of the carpark into a warm up/training area....
