Sunday 4 January 2015 training

UPDATE SUNDAY MORNING

Training still on but don't use pitch 2 as there is still water on It. So, lets double up on P1 and P3 - also try and use areas off the pitches for practices and technical skills sessions.

Happy Christmas/New Year everyone.

Quick note to say that the minis - U6 to U12 inclusive - are training at home on the first Sunday of the new year (that is unless you hear differently from your manager). For exceptions, see below

U6 & U7 not training on the 4th.
U10 are away.

If there is a weather issue please check back here. Unless it says off, it's on!

Sunday 7th December - matches and training and buy your Christmas tree at the club!

Three things to highlight:

1. Order your team photos - see your team manager. £10 for one, £15 for two, for orders over 3 they are £7.50 each. You can preview them on this site - see this post. Una Deed has the answers to all your questions social@wmrfc.co.uk.

2. Next week - 14 December, is the Christmas party. Food for the kids for free, delicious food to buy for the adults. The spirit of Christmas wrapped up in a rugby clubhouse. Any gifts for the raffle, please bring 'em.

3. New Year's Eve - there will be a party at the club on NYE. Details to come but you can be sure of a cracking night. Food + booze + music. Fancy it? Una's your woman: social@wmrfc.co.uk

On to matters rugby

Minis U8 and U10 are at home.
U7, U9 and U11 are travelling to Quins - postcode: TW11 9BE, see map attached. Quins' clubhouse is currently closed but they have an agreement with the Anglers pub next door to open early to provide refreshments (including hot food).
Please note that there is no fixture for U12s this week so it's training at home.

Youth U13, U14 and U16 training at home.
U17 play North Surrey Barbarians.
U18 play Wasps in the next round of the national Cup.
U15 away.

The usual but important wet-ground requests:
ONE: Please keep moving on the touchline as the ground is still wet and keep the training games moving as the ground can't recover from over-playing at this time of year.
TWO: Car parking will be restricted due to the overflow being closed. Please respect the neighbours. Parking policy to be found top left on the homepage

Squad photos available to buy

Please see attached document to preview what the squad pics will look like. Una Deed's your woman for more info: social@wmrfc.co.uk

Plans for Sunday 30 November 2014

Christmas time, mistletoe and wine - be the first to get your tree up. Trees on sale (Nordmann Firs, no less) at the club on Sundays 30 November and then 7th and 14th, too. Why wait - pick one up this Sunday! The club makes some money as well from every tree bought (see post below).

Turning to rugby, other than England having hopefully tuned over the Aussies, it's a busy day at the club.

Minis are at home for training - everyone in their usual locations. There are a couple of fixtures in the Development League, too.
Youth: U13A and U15s are on the road - good luck at Irish and Cranleigh. U13B and U14s are hosting at home - welcoming Camberley and Cobham. All other youth groups are training.

The usual but important wet-ground requests:
ONE: Please keep moving on the touchline as the ground is still wet and keep the training games moving as the ground can't recover from over-playing at this time of year.
TWO: Car parking will be restricted due to the overflow being closed. Please respect the neighbours. Parking policy to be found top left on the homepage

Sunday 23 November plans

U7, U9, U10 and U11 at KCS is CANCELLED. No training today.
All other training at home is also CANCELLED due to the overnight and continuing rain. There is standing water on most areas and it doesn't look as if the rain is due to stop.

A decision on the U18 cup game will be made soon. The U18s continue their charge in the National Cup and play Wasps at 12.30pm - if it's on it should be a cracker. The U15 game is also subject to a pitch inspection.

On a positive note...

Don't forget to order your tickets for the comedy night 28th November - don't forget to pay for them if you have reserved them! Book early!!!

A few notices from social secretary Una

Team photos will be taken this Sunday (weather permitting).

Old strips - if you have any old kit lying around the house or rugby boots that have been grown out of, please bring them along and we will hold a second hand sale at the club on Sunday 16 and Sunday 30 November.

Comedy Night is 28 November, doors open at 19:00, show starts at 20:00, tickets £20 from Una on 07703 190554 or e-mail social@wmrfc.co.uk

Sunday 16 November 2014

This week's notice from Dick Dunford starts with a question...

Will it ever stop raining? Let's hope so as we have a busy weekend of rugby at the club.

The minis have training and the the U12s are hosting Old Ruts to a couple of matches - should be good to watch.

U18 start their League charge away to Old Alleyians.
U15 start their campaign at home to Richmond.
U13 A and B start their first league season away to Old Alleyians and Vandals
U14, U17 and U16 are at home for training.

Parking is bound to be an issue as the overflow will be closed and the car park will fill quickly. Use the Preston Road Car park sensibly and we'll get plenty in there - otherwise, car-sharing, walking,cycling, drop off are all ideal alternatives to parking.
If you park in the local roads please ensure that your'e not inconveniencing the residents.

Also to avoid turning the touchlines and pitches into mud baths, please move your training around; parents, please avoid standing in one spot for too long.

Good luck to all the teams playing league matches and have enjoyable sessions for those training.
