Lots of hard work has gone on behind the scenes and I for one am excited about the year ahead. Recruitment has been top of the agenda and both the 1's and 2's squads are looking health as we approach pre-season.
From the 4th onwards we will train at MFR every Tuesday / Thursday between 7-9pm. Sessions will be varied and will encompass the following:
- game play
- team building
- strength and conditioning
EVERYONE is welcome regardless of ability as one of the main aims of pre-season is to unite as a club, work hard and have fun. The plan is to have a BBQ and a few beers after training on a Tuesday night. If you have any mates, relatives, work colleagues etc who might fancy getting involved then make sure you drag them along.
As it stands we have the following pre-season fixtures:
Saturday 12th August - Abingdon 7's tournament @ Abingdon RFC
Saturday 19th August - Cheltenham @ home (1's and 2's) - 2:30pm KO
Thursday 24th August - Henley 2's @ home (large squad) - 7pm KO
Our first half of this season will be a reflection of our commitment to pre-season. Please don't see it as a chore, get involved early and you'll see it's varied and enjoyable + you'll be buzzing for the new season.
Stash sizing will be done at early pre-season so there is another incentive for boys to get down.
Charlotte James is looking after membership this year and I know the committee are working hard on your behalf to make this worthwhile. In addition, there are plans to bring in other player incentives which will again help to create the buzz we need in the clubhouse, details to follow.
Look forward to seeing you there!
