Please do check the fixtures schedule just to make sure we are at home or the website if the weather isn’t that great.
Kit – to begin with, in the younger age groups, in early Autumn no special kit is needed, but as Autumn turns to winter, boots with studs, gloves, hats, base layer tops and bottoms, help the kids to stay warm and, above all, enjoy their rugby.
Parking is free and available on site on Sunday mornings right next to the pitches. The club shop is open each time we train at home, for those clothing needs, as the weather turns from summer into winter.
We have a warm and friendly clubhouse for food and drinks, for before, during and after training.
When children reach the U12s they move up and into the youth section.
