KENILWORTH RFC NEWS, 6th SEPT 2016
• Last week the ones travelled to Stoke. They lost 10-15 but the general feeling was that perhaps we should have come away with the win as we were camped in Stoke’s 22 for the last 15 minutes. It was not to be but we gained a losing bonus point for our efforts. The report and the piccies are on the web site. The other game played last week was a Barbarians fixture, with some Cavaliers, at Princethorpe College, losing 12-20 (ish). On Sunday the ladies played a warm up game at Amber valley, winning 26-8.
• On Saturday (10th) we have our first league game at home and we take on Stratford. They had a big bonus point win last week over Hereford. Other games include the Colts at home to Banbury and our Cavaliers away at Stratford. On Sunday the Ladies play their first ever league game, away at Coalville.
• Applications for tickets for the 2017 Six Nations games at Twickenham are now open and full details are on the web site, www.kenilworthrugby.co.uk 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.
• Our major Sponsor, Andrew Whiting, is holding a Golf Day at Kenilworth Golf Club on 29th Sept and full details on this are on the home page of the web site, www.kenilworthrugby.co.uk. You will need to register with Zoe and this information is on the web site.
• Another of our Sponsors is The Almanack. They have kindly agreed to reward members of Kenilworth RFC with a discount on any food purchased. Details of this offer are on our web site, www.kenilworthrugby.co.uk and all you have to do is show them your Membership card.
• On Friday 23rd Sept World Cup winning captain Martin Johnson is coming to the club and he will be giving our U9’s a training session on the main pitch between 5 and 7pm. One of their coaches bid for this session at a rugby dinner and this is his reward! Everyone is welcome to come down and see the great man and our bar will open on the night from 5pm.
• It is congratulations to our ex player Will Owen who has been made captain of Rotherham Titans. Glyn is a very proud father. It is also nice to note that Will Maisey has returned to Coventry and was on the score sheet last week.
