Christmas Shopping

Serious stuff are selling off their old Wimbledon stock at half price. Go to serious-stuff.com to grab a bargain. While there has been some change in our shirt design a lot of the other stuff may still be of interest.

I am still waiting to hear from
Luca Boyd

Jonny Davies
Fred Harwood

Sunday Christmas Lunch

Hi Christmas lunch is this weekend and we need to know how many to cook for. The lunch will follow training at around 12.30ish. Thus if you are coming please let me know. I have yet to hear from

Jonny Davies
Callum Drewett
Louis Fleming
Fred Harwood
Hamish Zin-Zan Lawless
Will Martin
Chino Onwuachu
Max Quenby
Freddie Russell
Alex Soriano

Thanks

Dave

Next Sunday

Well done today. A great win - 30 to 3.

Next week we are at home for training followed by the youth Christmas lunch. Please make every effort to attend as we need the training before the Weybridge game the following weekend.

For those in the U18s this is your last youth Christmas lunch. To mark the occaison it is a tradition for the club to present those who have been with the club for 10 season with a "ten year" club tie. Those who have not been with us for 10 years receive a normal club tie. This means that it would be good if everyone (including those who have not played this half term due to school commitments) can attend and secondly everyone should wear a shirt with a collar (white or blue).

So that we know how many to cater for, please let me know now if you will be attending the lunch.

thanks

Dave

This Sunday and Christmas Lunch

Hi

Two things. Still waiting for the replies for this Sunday from
Charlie Brown
Nick Brown
Jonny Davies
Sean Davies
Max Quenby

The second thing is that we have our Christmas lunch on 3 December. Lunch will be served between 12.30 and 1 pm so please let me know if you are available for that.

Finally Christmas lunch will be a bit sparse if we do not have any turkey. Can anyone volunteer their parent (or themselves) to cook the biggest turkey they can get in their oven. They would need to buy it and I would reimburse the cost. I will be away so we definitely need a volunteer please.

When replying with availability please make it clear whether you are talking about this Sunday and/or the Christmas lunch

Thanks

Sunday 26 November - Haselmere at Home

Next week really is our postponed Waterfall Cup match against Haselmere. We are at home with a KO at 11am -so turn up at 10am.

Please let me know if you are available.

Thanks

Dave

A serious message - please read

As you hopefully know we have launched a fantastic new project Wimbledon In The Community. You should also know that, although we have some generous funders we need to get more funds to keep it running and we have applied to the AVIVA fund to help with that.

We need you to log on and vote and we stand a good chance of getting some funds to help us build a better club and a better community. So far, with only two days to go, we have only just over a 1000 votes as I don't think enough people knew about it. So please get on their website ( https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/ ), register on the site, then type Wimbledon in the search bar and cast your 10 votes for the Wimbledon in the Community project and lets improve the ruby experience for 100s of children.

Sport has always been a great way to connect with people. It has the ability to build the strongest of bonds, whether that is through competition or being part of the crowd.

It is Sunday evening, so you have the time to make a difference today .............. please

Dave

Rocky
Chino
Sam Park

Thanks

Dave

This Sunday - Camberley away

Dave

Sunday - Match cancelled and NO training

Hi

Haselmere have been unable to get a team together for this weekend. I am seeing if we can play them next weekend. However it means there is no match tomorrow. Further as the club is so busy tomorrow, all of the pitches are already allocated and so we cannot train at home. Thus there is no rugby for our age group tomorrow

Sorry but it is beyond my control. Enjoy the lie in

Dave

Haselmere - this sunday

Hi

Just to let you know we are still waiting for Haselmere to confirm times for this weekend. They said that they had not received the notice from Surrey RFU re the waterfall cup fixtures (and obviously had not followed up after they entered the tournament). Anyway they are checking that they have a team available and so you will need to keep an eye out on your messages for an update which I will send out as soon as I hear.

Dave

This Sunday

Not many replies so far for this weekend. If you are available please say now

Dave

Haslemere - Sunday 5 November

Hi

Next weekend we have the first game in the Surrey Waterfall Cup. We are away to Haslemere. I do not know the kick off time yet and will let you know when I do. In the meantime please let me know if you can play.

Unlike with friendlies, we can only take 22 boys. Thus you need to let us know if you can play. No response will mean you are assumed to be unavailable. Selection will take place on Thursday so I need a response by close on Wednesday. However, don't delay and please let me know now. Even if you cannot play please respond so I can cross you off my list

Thanks

Dave

Sunday 29 October

Hi

Just a reminder that it is training tomorrow. This is the last training session before we go into the Waterfall cup so please make every effort to attend. Usual time - 10am start

Dave

Next weekend - a rest day

Hi - bad luck today. As it is half term we are going to have a rest next weekend. We then have training on 29 October followed by Haselmere away on 5 November in the Waterfall Cup.

I am just trying to firm up the final arrangements for the pre Christmas period and will let you know once this is settled

Dave

Sunday 15 Oct - Esher at Home

Hi

A real lack of responses this week. We have our home match this weekend against Esher - KO at 11 so warm up at 10. I am still waiting for replies from

Charlie Brown
Jonny Davies
Sean Davies
Callum Drewett
Rocky
Chino Onwuachu
Max Quenby
Alex Soriano

Please reply now

Dave

Sunday 15 October

Hi

It was a hard day today but that is to be expected bearing in mind that the team has now only had two matches together.

Next week is our final game before the Waterfall cup starts. It is against Esher at home with KO of 11am (so turn up for warm up at 10am). Please let me know if you are available and don't wait to be chased.

Thanks

Dave

Effingham & Leatherhead

The match is now confirmed for this weekend at Effingham & Leatherhead. It is a case of turn up for training at 11am and then KO at noon. The ground is at King George V playing fields in Effingham although parking is at the Howard of Effingham School, Lower Rd, Effingham, Leatherhead KT24 5JR. There is limited parking at the club so you have been warned. I attach a map which gives further details. You may need to click on the link below to log on to the WMRFC website to view this

So far I know the status of about 12 boys and about half of those are injured so I really need to know from everyone else whether they are available (even if it is only to say that they are not). Please let me know now.

Thanks

Dave

8 October

Hi

I am waiting for confirmation from Effingham & Leatherhead that our away match is on next weekend and also for the time of the game. Assuming it is on please let me know if you are available.

Thanks

Dave

London Welsh - tomorrow - 1 October

Hi

Tomorrow we play London Welsh away. We are playing in Barnes at the sports ground on Queen Elizabeth Walk, Barnes, London SW13 9SA. There are two sports grounds. We are playing at the one at the very end of Queen Elizabeth Walk (so go past the first one on the right and continue all of the way to the end). Parking is always a nightmare so you have been warned. The later you are the worse it will be. Warm up will start from 10am and KO is at 11am.

Everyone available will get to play. This will be the first combined u17/18 game. The plan is to play together until Christmas but it will take a while to get things to gel so please bear with us.

See you tomorrow

Dave

"

1 October

Hi

Firstly a clarification - we are playing London Welsh this weekend in Barnes and not London Irish.

Secondly I have had only 10 replies as to availability. It would be really good if you could let me know if you can or cannot play. I know some boys are deliberately ruling themselves out before Christmas due to school commitments and that is fine. However, can anyone doing that let me know so that I can then mark up my availability sheet accordingly.

As we are running a mixed side pre Christmas we need more time to co-ordinate with the U17s. Thus please let me know availability now (if you are not one of the 10 who has already done so)

Thanks

Dave
"

1 October

Next Sunday we are away to London Irish. Please let me know if you can play. Even if you cannot please let me know that you cannot as then we can plan.

The coaches will talk about team selection on Thursday night so those who reply be then get first picks

Dave

This Sunday 24 Oct

Sorry but Esher have called off. We will be training this weekend at home.

Regards

David

Sunday 24 September - ~Esher away

Hi
I am waiting for confirmation that the match is definitely on for this weekend at Esher and also for the KO time. However, in the meantime please let me know whether you are available. This will be a mixed u17/18 side and good preparation for the waterfall cup later in the autumn.

Thanks

Dave

Registration

Hi

The registration form for next season has now been published. See
https://goo.gl/forms/syAOrLDHSGffVHXD2

Please register and pay in advance. If you pay quickly the subs for a single subscription are £135 for the year. If you take too long it goes up to £150.

It really does help if subs are sorted out quickly. Otherwise I have to spend time chasing which is not pleasant and it costs you more.

When you have paid please let me know so I can make sure that the records are up to date.

We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday

Many thanks

Dave

2017/18 Season

Hi

I know it is hot today, but the season starts again next Sunday 3 September at 10am. Hopefully everyone is coming back and we look forward to seeing you next weekend.

We can give you more detail about how the season will work then, as there are no leagues this year. Instead there are two different cup competitions - so there will still be plenty of games. However, it is easier to explain how it will work face to face.

See you all next Sunday at 10am

Dave

Sunday 30 April

Just a reminder that we have our final Sunday of the season at the club on Sunday. I have not heard from Alex, Freddie or Chino as to whether they will be there (please let me know).

We start at 11am. See you then.

Dave

Sunday 30th April

Hi

We are meeting at the club on 30th April for our final session of the season. Meet at 11 am and we will finish by 12.30 and then have a drink and some food.

I am lacking a lot of responses. Can the following let me know if they can make it as I need to know for the food order:

Kym A
Luca B
Charlie B
Nick B
Jonny D
Callum D
Louis F
Jonathan H
Rocky H
Hamish L
Will M
Chino O
Sam P
Beau R
Freddie
Adam S
Alex S
Jack S

Thanks

Dave

Sunday 30 April

Hi

As it is the mini's last Sunday training session this Sunday we are going to have ours on Sunday 30th April. Meet at the club at 11am. We will play touch etc for an hour to an hour and a half and then try to sort out some food etc afterwards. However, keep the day free now and let me know if you can make it so that I know numbers for catering.

Dave

Tomorrow 2 April

Don't forget we start at 9.45 tomorrow. Everyone who said that they can play will play. Kick off at 10.45. This is the last match of the season so let's hope for a win.
Dave

today

If anyone is looking for something to do today, apparently the club have a tv/movie crew on site interviewing members and kids involved in rugby! Ex player Lewis moody  Martin Corry and Tom Shanklin will all be there to participate.  11 till 2pm.

Thursday Training and this Sunday - match against Vandals

Hi

We do not have the numbers to run a training session on Thursday so we will cancel that. The match on Sunday AT HOME will however go ahead. That said, I am still waiting to hear whether the following are available - please reply now:

Louis Fleming
Jonathan Harland
Hamish Lawless
Chino Onwuachu
Dan Owen
Sam Penny
Adam Scully
Jack Stace

Please note that this is the last match of the season. It is also a league game which we could really do with winning.

The plan is to try and kick off early (10.40) so everyone needs to arrive for 9.45 (which has the bonus that parking will be easier). Do not be late.

As there will be no more matches this season, we will then have a break until 23 April. I will let people have details of the arrangements for that day nearer the time.

Those who have not replied please reply now

Dave

Sunday 2 April - Vandals at home

An unlucky game today. It sounds like it was a good game, and we were unlucky to lose at the end.

Next week we play Vandals at home in our last league game of the season. A while ago I asked for availability, but as a lot has happened since then, I want to confirm things now. Also rather than having training on Saturday we are going to try an hour at 6pm on Thursday if there are enough boys interested.

So two things for you to reply about:

1. Availability for Sunday (arrive 10am KO at 10.40)

2. Whether you can make training at 6pm on Thursday

Please reply now

Thanks

Dave

Sunday 26 March - Ironsides away in the league

Hi

So that everyone is aware tomorrow we play at Ironsides.

The address is
Battersea Ironsides Sports Club
Burntwood Lane,
Earlsfield,
London SW17 0AW
020 8874 9913

We are hoping to kick off early so please try and be there for 9.45

Regards

Dave

Sunday 26 March - Ironsides away in the league

OK we are 17 players for this weekend so it is really important that everyone turns up. Everyone who said they can play will get to play.

Don't forget that for those that can make it we have an hours training at 4pm tomorrow afternoon.

Dave

Sunday 26 March - Ironsides away in the league

Hi

We are tight on numbers this weekend. Freddie. Adam and Charlie can you let me know of you can play.

Thanks

Dave

Sunday 26 March - Ironsides away in the league

As of now I am still waiting to hear whether the following are available for this weekend. Can you let me know now please:

Charlie Brown
Jonny Davies
Daniel Owen
Sam Penny
Freddie Russell
Adam Scully
Alex Soriano

As an advance warning there will be training at the club at 4pm on Saturday. Kick off will be slightly earlier (10.45) on Sunday to try and finish early as it is Mothers' Day

Dave

Sunday 26 March

With apologies to all of the mothers but I just checked the Surrey RFU website. We are AWAY at Ironsides next weekend. Fortunately they have confirmed that KO is still 11am

Dave

Sunday 26 March

Bad luck today.

Next weekend we have Ironsides at home in the league. Please let me know availability now

Thanks

Dave Wilkinson

Sunday 19 March - Old Cats

Hi

We have 21 boys available this weekend so everyone gets into the match squad. It is however a league game, so game time is not guaranteed.

As Saturday is a big day for England rugby and lots of people will want to watch the England game, we will not hold a training session on Saturday. Instead please turn up at Old Cats for 10am on Sunday.

I am told that parking is a nightmare at Old Cats. They say parents should drop off at club and then park in the Caterham Dene Hospital car park on the right hand side of that car park.

The address for the Old Cats ground is:
Old Caterhamians RFC
Park Avenue
Caterham
Surrey
CR3 6AH

See you on Sunday

Dave
