Cinderford v Richmond Saturday 1st February KO 2pm
As January finally comes to an end this Saturday 1st February the FIRST XV are off to the Forest of Dean to play Cinderford KO at the earlier time of 2pm. The team are travelling by coach and as the VIKINGS are also playing Cinderford II I am afraid there is no room on the bus for travelling supporters.
Directions to the ground can be found here - and we are advised that there is free parking.

Other Saturday games
The SAXONS play Canterbury II away whilst the JUTES take on Camberley II at home both KO 2pm.
The WOMEN’S teams are not in action this weekend.

Sunday 2nd February
The MINIS are either at home or at Old Wimbledonian Warriors so if in doubt as to where you should be please check with your age group manager.
YOUTH home games: Colts v Warlingham, U15 v Old Reigatians, U13 v Old Wimbledonian Warriors - all KO 12pm

Shop opening hours this weekend – Richmond Rugby OnLine shop
The shop will not be open on Saturday as there is no First XV game at the ground. It will be open as usual on Sunday from 9am to 12pm – please note the slightly earlier closing time this Sunday.
However the shop is of course in fact open 24/7 as the OnLine shop is up and very much running. So do check it out if you are unable to get to the ground or the physical shop is closed. CLICK HERE

Richmond v Rotherham Saturday 8th February KO 2.30pm
The FIRST XV return home next Saturday 8th February to take on Rotherham KO at the slightly earlier time of 2.30pm. CLICK HERE to buy your tickets.
Lunch bookings for this match are open and as I need to be elsewhere that weekend they will close earlier than usual to help the admin – so please note you will need to book in by next Tuesday 4th February latest please!

February Half Term Camp 18th – 20th February 2020
A reminder that we will be holding a three day Half Term Holiday camp on Tuesday 18th/Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th February for the mini and youth age groups (Under 5s – Under 15s).
The camp will be run by our Head of Community, Dom Palacio, and his team of enthusiastic coaches and each day will be full of fun packed activities aimed to improve core skills and team work.
All coaches have a wealth of both playing and coaching experience and are RFU Level 2 qualified. They all hold current advanced DBS clearance and there will be a dedicated first aid trained coach in attendance at all times.
The cost is £90 for three days, £65 for the two days or £35 for one day, and timings are 9am to 3pm. A packed lunch and drinks are required as well as a gum shield if appropriate for your child’s age group, plus suitable clothing bearing in mind it is February.
The camp is open to all boys and girls, not just Richmond members and for more information and to book a place please CLICK HERE
