KENILWORTH RFC NEWS: 11th JAN 2017
A week in the life of Kenilworth Rugby – see the thoughts of Bruce Doe
Call for Volunteers
Raising money for Charities
• What a game we had last week against second placed Malvern and it was credit to all 36 players who took the field. You can read about it in our report on the web site but we could not have done any more in a 31-37 defeat and came away with two bonus points (despite the loss) that keeps us in touch with second placed Malvern.
• The fund raising efforts by the club were also to be admired, raising an amazing £1571 for Prostate Cancer UK. This amount is on top of the ~£2500 we have raised in the past twelve months for charitable causes.
• Our Colts lost narrowly at home to Broadstreet, 24-29 (report is on web site) whilst our Two’s retuned to action with a very good 45-14 away win at Spartans.
• Our Ladies did us proud, yet again, travelling 130 miles (3hrs in a coach) to Wymondham and defeating them 23-17 to reach the last eight of the National Intermediate Cup – not too bad considering they are playing at a higher league and doing well. The report on this game is also on the web site.
• The run up to and the happenings last week has prompted our Bruce Doe to pen a few nice words and you can find them HERE
• This weekend our Men’s first XV are off to Nuneaton Old Eds in the league. Old Eds are lying in 11th spot in the table with three wins. Last week they lost narrowly to Evesham 17-14. We simply need to keep on winning to keep the pressure on Malvern who are at home to Leamington. Our second XV are at home to Old Laurentian on the main pitch. On Sunday our Ladies are on their travels again to Old Northants in the league. The Colts are having a weekend off (I think!).
• On Sunday 14th Jan our U15 squad are taking on Old Laurentian U15’s in the 1/4r final of their Warwickshire Cup, 1pm ko.
• Our re-arranged game away at Evesham will take place, next week, 20th Jan.
• On Sat 3rd March we are holding a St David’s Night and PAG and his committee have lined up some superb entertainment. Details (including a choir!) will soon be available on the web site.
• Roger Roberts has put out a call for Volunteers to help him on the Commercial & Social side and you will find full details HERE
• The Six Nations will soon be upon us and all games will be shown at the club on our four big screens. If you applied for Twickenham tickets then there is an envelope behind the bar advising you of your allocation, if any, and how to claim your refund.
