Wimbledon RFC Mini & Youth stalwart playing at Twickenham

This Sunday (4 May 2014) Daniel Laventure, a lad who has played all the way from U7 to U18 at our club, turns out for Northumberland in the U20 County Championship final at Twickenham. The match featuring Daniel, against Yorkshire, kicks off at 5pm but the day starts at 11am with four games to be played on the day. With tickets only a fiver for the day on sale on the gate it's well worth a trip to Twickers.

Northumberland's semi final match report is here

His dad, Steph, sent the following pic to celebrate the moment/embarrass his son (you decide which)

U11s Spring magazine is here

See the attached brilliant document showing us all how newsletters should be done.

League success for U17s and U18s

This weekend saw the U18s play their last ever game (a 40-10 friendly win), having secured the Division 2 championship a couple of weeks ago.

The U17s went one better by winning the Division 1 championship, the first time ever for a Wimbledon side. They also have a National Cup final to come!

Pitch plan for this Sunday (9 March)

It's gonna be warm, 16 degrees - great news.

Most of the minis are away to H&F (at their grounds at Hurlingham Park, www.fulhamrugby.co.uk/find-us/, training starts at 10am and there's parking there, too)

Others U6, U7 at home, U8 at Kings, U11 are hosting a squad from Cobham and the U12s are playing a fixture against Esher at home.

The U14s have a league match and the other youth teams are training.

We had expected the U17s to play Tonbridge Juddians in a national Quarter final but they have withdrawn - so Wimbledon are through to the Semis on the 23rd of March.
