key objectives

Monmouth RFC continues to flourish and has done since 1873! Our 400+ rugby players, 50+ coaches, managers, administrators and 1200+ members continue to support the Club and enjoy the welcoming and friendly environment that is Monmouth RFC.

As a Club we have set ourselves a number of key objectives:

New Flood Lights

One of our primary objectives has been to install adequate floodlight facilities on Chippenham playing fields. Last season we installed new state of the art floodlights on two pitches on the Chippy, making it the first floodlit grass playing facility in the Monmouth area. Training on grass during the winter months is critical for rugby training and development during the season. Both the senior and young rugby players will benefit enormously from this new facility as training is mostly undertaken after school / work.

The cost of floodlight installation was over £65,000.00. Thank you to the generous individuals, the WRU, Sport Wales and Monmouthshire County Council for their support and financial donations, which made the project possible.

Our thoughts now turn to pitch maintenance, with anticipated maintenance costs of over £6,000.00 per season, with the additional use of the pitches for training purposes. We will also look to install two new floodlight columns on the Druids pitch, allowing us to play competitive matches on the Chippy under floodlights for the first time.

Enhanced Clubhouse Facilities

Our newly refurbished clubhouse is an excellent facility for use by our patrons, sponsors, other clubs and associations and the general public. We recently hosted the Wales Under 20s World Cup three day training camp at the Club, a Level 2 coaching course last season and a WRU brain storming session, including a canoeing trip down the Wye!! Club Stewardess, Emma Henry, and her team provide a professional and welcoming environment, with every catering need being met to suit the requirement.

These enhanced facilities allow us to use the club more effectively throughout the season and provide the opportunity to generate additional revenue. Please come along and enjoy the new facilities. Non – members, businesses and other clubs and associations are more than welcome to use the Club facilities.

Excellent Coaching - Schools Rugby Officers and Ambassadors


Our key objective is to be the rugby club of first choice for rugby players and to develop the game at all levels. In order to achieve our objective, our coaches need to be at the forefront of their coaching prowess.

We have invested in our coaches and currently have
the most qualified coaching team in the WRU Dragons region. The recent appointment of our WRU – MRFC Rugby Schools Officer Craig Everett and our Rugby Ambassadors – Monmothians and Welsh Internationals Hallam Amos and Cameron Watson Boycott have had a profound impact on player numbers within the club and will help to cement our relationship with the local schools and the great Monmouth community.

Excellent Social Calendar

The Club relies on revenue generated from bar sales and from social events to survive financially. This year will see an enhanced social calendar, with Club Days, large social events and Sponsors Days taking place at key times throughout the season.

Key dates for the diary including key social events will be published early to encourage attendance and early bookings.

Please support these events and get involved. You don’t have to be a rugby player/member to enjoy a good time at the Club- everyone is welcome!

Continued Playing Success

Monmouth RFC is an amateur club. It is incumbent upon the Club to ensure that our players are well looked after in the event of injury and that the social set up of the Club is as good as it can be. It is also important that the players have great kit to wear and our sponsors are key to our future success in this respect. Our first aid policy provides for the best complimentary medical care for our players.

Please come along and join in as players, coaches or volunteers. We look forward to welcoming you to our family orientated, community based club.
