From Una Deed: WMRFC's first U7 girls' team took part in the development tournament at Mitcham on 22 March and held their own very well against the boys!!

Both teams (one girls, one boys) had a great day at Mitcham today and made lots of progress!

Wimbledon U17s turn out for Kyle McInerney memorial game at Old Ruts 22 March 2015

On Saturday [22 March], eight of our U17s represented the club in a Baa Baas team to play Old Ruts in a Memorial game for Kyle McInerney, writes Philip Rea. Kyle sadly passed away last May.

This was a fantastic game of rugby played in great spirit, style and at a very fast pace. It was a most fitting tribute. It finished Old Ruts 17 Baa Baas 10. Well done to all the Wimbledon lads who gave up their Saturday to participate; George Price, Leon Bird, Tom Newsome, Mo Khan, Sam McKibben, Ivan Rea, Jack Mellinger, & Eamon Broderick.

Pitch plan for today (March 22nd)

Minis are in their usual spots.
Netball at usual times
Youth are training on P1 and P4.
U13b play their last league match on P3 - good luck in your promotion chase.
U14 Play a friendly against Rosslyn park

Pitch Plan

Great results from Sunday 15th March and dates for the diary

The minis had their A festival on Sunday; was a great day of rugby, well-organised by the U12s under Anthony Hulton. U7 and U9 won their own festival, too! Any more results?

Youth teams did fantastically, too. The U16s won their home game away to Sutton & Epsom – 27-17 and the U17s won at home to Reeds – 25-15.

Saturday 21st March
A massive day for the club with a crucial fixture for the senior 1st XV. Win against Sutton & Epsom and they may well be promoted this season to the national leagues. IF YOU CAN COME DOWN AND SUPPORT THE LADS, PLEASE DO! A big home support could well make the difference.

The club's putting on fun for all the family, BBQ, bar etc. KO is 2.30pm.

Sunday 29th March
Please come and support the U17s at home to Camberley 11am KO. It’s the last league game of the season and we are neck and neck on points. Whoever wins are Champions of Division 2.

Tuesday 31st March
Wimbledon U17s v Bermuda U17s, KO 6pm

There will be bbq & more and we want to give the Bermudans a big warm Wimbledon welcome!

Pitch plan etc Sunday 1 March

Some great news - not only do we have a current England player - Nick Easter - coaching our first XV, Dylan Morris from the under 18s has been selected to play for England against Ireland and France over the Easter holidays.

Dylan is a wonderful ambassador for the game and an excellent example of what can be achieved. Please congratulate him when you see him. Good luck from everyone at Wimbledon RFC.

Sunday is going to be busy. We have three league matches, most of the minis training at home and netball growing in popularity week on week so parking will be congested. Due to pitch wear there is a bit of movement for some age groups - as usual please try and avoid overplaying worn areas.

U11's away. A squads to Esher. Everyone else at home

U13 - training
U13B - League match v Cobham P5
U14 - League match v Dorking P7
U15 - training
U16 - training
U17 - Away v Old ruts
U18 - League match v Farnham P1

7/8/9 year olds from 9.30am to 10.45am
10/11 year olds from 10.45am to 12.00pm
12 to 15 yo sessions will run from 12.00 to 1.15pm as and when we have ten people signed up.

Ireland v England will be on the telly in the clubhouse AND the ladies are due to play their last match of the season on Sunday. A 2.30pm kick off at home against Reading. Whilst this clashes with the England v Ireland game it would be great to have as much support as possible. It’ll be the last match of our 25th season and the last for two of our very valued oldies (Cheese and Sonic) who will both retire after each giving 25 years of service to the team. It’s set to be a great game and we do hope you will join to support (and to watch the England v Ireland game with us afterwards).

Sunday 22 Feb

U8 and U12 are at home, training (we were due to host some other clubs but we've had to cancel other teams coming due to the wet weather). There's an U13Bs match on P4.
