Following the recent government announcement it is with some frustration that we have to advise that the clubhouse will be closed from midnight Wednesday until December 2nd (when we would hope to re-open).
Whilst detailed RFU guidelines remain outstanding it is apparent that it is very unlikely that any form of group training or Ready4Rugby activity will be allowed over the same period which is very disappointing given the importance of our Sunday mornings at Volac Park for both players & their parents. Nick, Ben & Richie are already looking at how the club can remain engaged with its mini, youth & senior players over the next few weeks and will be updating us all shortly.
In addition to the above the RFU have announced that there will be no league rugby for the 20/21 season below level 2 for men & level 1 for women and any alternative options will not commence until the new year. At this stage the ‘alternatives’ have not been settled but it appears likely that a more regionalised approach which may take the form of league and/or cup fixtures.
Whilst the disruption to all levels of rugby played at Volac Park is a huge frustration to all of us we do look forward to a positive start to the new year at Volac Park
Once we have more meaningful information to update we shall do so and until then keep well & if you are a player keep fit!
