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 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....
