KENILWORTH RFC NEWS: 5th JAN 2017
Pirates Lunch before the Malvern game tomorrow – Raffle prizes sought
News of Warwickshire Shield semi final draw
• I trust that you all had a very good Festive Season and wish you a Happy New Year.
• We start the New Year with a very big home game against second placed Malvern and this is arguably our biggest game of the season to date. To put it bluntly, we need to win to have any chance of keeping in touch with leaders Droitwich and indeed Malvern. The game kicks off at 2.15 and it would be really good for the boys to run out to a big vociferous home support. The programme for the game will be posted on the web site tonight and if you cannot make the game there will be regular tweets from @kenilworthrugby.
• Before the Malvern game there is a Pirates Lunch with the chosen charity Prostate Cancer being the theme. All proceeds form the gate, and fund raising at the lunch will be going to Prostate Cancer. There will be a raffle and if you wish to bring down a raffle prize then it will gladly be accepted.
• Also at home today are the Colts who play Broadstreet at the Cowpatch. On Sunday our Ladies travel away to Wymondham in the third round of the National Cup. Our two’s are travelling to Spartans.
• I hope you caught our appearance on BT Sport’s Rugby Tonight last Wednesday. We, and our sponsors, got some superb coverage but only one slight hitch – no one mentioned who we were!
• We now know our Warwickshire Shield semi final opponents and this will be Spartans at a neutral ground on 11th Feb. Our second XV are playing Shipston in the semi final of the 2nd XV Shield on 28th Jan.
• On Sunday 14th Jan our U15 squad are taking on Old Laurentian U15’s in the 1/4r final of their Warwickshire Cup.
• Our re-arranged game away at Evesham will take place on Sat 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 will soon be available on the web site.
• We have been contacted by Gary Craine of Leamington Round Table. They are organising a Charity Regency Run on 18th April and the details are HERE. All are welcome to participate!
