• The season starts tomorrow and out first XV are away at Stoke, 3pm kick off. Stoke finished just above us last year and games between us are usually close. They play at Hartwell Lane, Barlaston, Stone, ST15 8TL and it would be good to have a big travelling support for the boys to run out to. They also do a very fine ‘free’ lunch before the game to which we have been invited to! Our side will contain four of our new summer signings and full info on them all will be provided in next weeks programme. Follow the game on Twitter, @kenilworthrugby.
• The other game this weekend is a Barbarians fixture and this is their first ever ‘away day’ playing at Princethorpe College against an Alex Wallis select as part of the College’s 50th Anniversary celebrations. There will be a sprinkling of Cavaliers in the squad, I have been told! Kick off is 4pm.
• There are no games at home this weekend but lots of TV rugby on!
• Our first home league game is the 10th Sept against Stratford and on this day our new season’s programme will be launched. Our Colts are also at home against Banbury and our Cavaliers are away at Stratford.
• On the Sunday (11th) our Ladies play their first ever league fixture away at Coalville.
• We have prepared a poster of the 1st XV and Ladies home league games and if you wish one for display in your workplace then contact me. These are to be distributed in pubs and clubs around the town and we thank Adam Turner for his hard work in preparing them.
• The M&J registration day will be 4th Sept with the Minis at the main club and the Juniors at the Cowpatch. It will run from 10am and there will be a bouncy castle and BBQ on the go. Later on that day our U9’s will be parading and playing at the Wasps v Exeter game and it would be good if there were a lot of Kenilworth back up in the stands. If you do fancy going then please buy your ticket through the Wasps link on our web site.
• The Membership Section of the web site (www.kenilworthrugby.co.uk/membership) has been updated and this gives information on how to manage your membership of KRFC. A request for subs has gone out and the club would appreciate if your payment was made ASAP, either across the bar or by c/card through the GMS system.
• The Contacts Section of the web site (www.kenilworthrugby.co.uk/keyclubcontacts) has also been updated but if you spot any errors or omissions then please let me know.
• Do you have a video camera lying at the bottom of a drawer unused? If you have we could make good use of it as we wish to video our first XV and Ladies games.
• Applications for tickets for the 2017 Six Nations games at Twickenham are now open and full details are on the web site. Closing date is end of Sept.
• Can I also remind you that if you are a member of Kenilworth RFC and you have purchased a season ticket for Wasps then please let us know as they have offered us cash back on the cost of your ticket. This also applies to individual game tickets when bought though our web site on the link on the home page.
• Please remember the club now has BT Sport at the weekends and this includes Premiership Rugby on Friday nights and Saturday and Sunday afternoons. This is in addition to Sky Sports which hosts the Pro 12 and the French Top 14. Sky will also be the platform for the up and coming Ryder Cup as well as the Autumn Internationals at Twickenham
