KENILWORTH RFC NEWS, 20th DEC 2013
We have now formed a Committee to progress the new ground!
There is a game on Boxing Day @ 11am
• A third bonus point win on the trot, 46-22 over Stoke last week finished off the 2013 leg of the league season, probably our best win of the season! We retained our 5th spot in the league. The pics are on the web site.
• The Colts warmed up nicely for their cup game on Sat with a win over the combined Leamington Colts (and indeed Princethorpe College!). The Cavaliers defeated Rugby St Andrews away but the three's lost at home in a re-arranged game with Tamworth. A brief Cavaliers report is on the web site. The full results are on the web site.
• This weekend the Colts take pride of place on, hopefully, the main pitch (weather and state of pitch permitting) when they take on Evesham in the first round of the National Colts Plate. It is a 2.15 kick off and it is a superb opportunity to see our colts who have won five of their ten games to date and have some exciting players
• The Cavaliers are away at Old Leamingtonians and the 3's entertain Old Leamingtonians 3's.
• Please note that the club will be open on Christmas Eve (6pm), Christmas Day (1 till 3) and Boxing Day (from noon). PAG's Barbarians are playing on Sunday 29th Dec with a game against Warwick School Old Boys.
• An 'internal' club game will take place on Boxing Day, kicking off at 11am. It will be a full (but sensible) contact game made up of two sides from all those players who fancy shaking off the cobwebs after a Christmas day of may be doing little more than, eating and drinking. For those of you who are not under strict orders to go straight back home, the Club Bar will be open at 12 noon for rehydration. All levels of players are welcome and sides will be 'selected' on a basis of seeking to pick two sides of level abilities.
• Please remember our Amazon link, accessed through the web site, for your Christmas gifts. Everything you spend through this links results in small cash back to KRFC.
• There is good news on our new ground. Things are progressing nicely and we have now formed a Committee to look at the design of the clubhouse and the new ground. Members of the committee have been drawn from all sections of the club and the first meeting is panned for 9th Jan.
• Do you happen to have an old shed lying around your garden or are you thinking of replacing the one you have. The club is looking to purchase one to store some equipment in and if you have something to offer then contact Willie W and I will pass on your info to Rod Jones.
• Do you fancy helping out on the Commercial activities that the club get involved in. If you do then Peter Blakeman would be delighted to hear from you.
