The great news is that this will be (fingers crossed) a season like any other – apart from the last two which were badly affected by the pandemic. It’s a return to fixtures – home and away – against other clubs and, thanks to brilliant work by our fixtures secretary, there’s a pretty full programme stretching into next April.
For most of our younger Minis and other players who may have joined us in the past 18 months this will be their first taste of truly competitive rugby, so exciting times ahead.
We pride ourselves on being an accessible, inclusive, welcoming club and it will come as no surprise to learn that we continue to have the cheapest subs in the area. What’s more we’re holding our fees at last season’s level – £70 per player and £50 for siblings. We know that fees can be difficult to find for some families and as ever, we’re happy to assist those who might need help with subs. And one thing we guarantee is that every player will get time on the pitch during competitive games.
Don’t forget the boot swap – there are plenty of pairs available if your youngster’s feet have grown, and all we ask is a £5 donation to club funds if you don’t have a pair to hand in.
If members introduce another player, they get a £10 gift voucher, so spread the word and bring your kids’ mates along for the most fun they can have with an odd-shaped ball.
Our commitment is that every player is made welcome, everyone has fun and there’s game time for all. In junior and mini rugby it doesn’t matter how big the squad is – everyone gets to play. That’s the philosophy of the Rugby Football Union (the sport’s governing body) and it’s one that Hungerford Rugby Club are at the forefront of embracing.
