We have decided it’s about time for us to seek out the missing generations of former players who, in the mists of time or in the not too distant past, packed their kit bag for the final time thereafter to be rarely seen or never seen at the Club again.
We have some dedicated former players who devote a great deal of their time and energy assisting with the development of Minis, Juniors, Colts and young Seniors in the art of playing this wonderful game of rugby. Some also help with the day-to-day running of the Club. But, there are many of you out there that we would love to see returning to the Club, to use your rugby knowledge, your personal skills and your life experience to help to make the club run even better than it does today. We want to see you back at the club to participate more fully in consolidating the club and maybe later even moving it to a higher plain.
We need your support in all manner of things. Get Involved! by joining our Executive 60 Club. No, that’s not the age you need to be, to join. That’s the number of members we’re aiming for. For a tenner a month you could be included in the twice yearly Prize Draw, currently with a first prize of £1,000. Get Involved! by using your influence to attract more sponsorship. Get Involved! in the running of the club by putting yourself forward to be a Committee Member with a few (or a portfolio of) responsibilities – your choice. Get Involved! by volunteering to be our Press Officer. Get Involved! by simply coming along for a few hours, as and when you can, to help maintain the Clubhouse exterior and grounds. Get Involved! by using your inter-personal and administrative skills to assist with communication within the club or team administration. Get Involved! by assisting with the organisation of our Car Boot Sales on Sundays. Get Involved! by deploying your practical expertise such as maintenance, electrical and plumbing skills as we always have the need for them. In fact all the skills, time and effort that generations of former players, before yours, expended to ensure that your time as a player was so enjoyable.
Even if you can’t put yourself forward for any of the above, at the very least, we want you in the clubhouse on Saturdays to enjoy a few beers while adding to the already great atmosphere.
We’re not asking for too much. Don’t Disappear! Get involved!
