young rugby chairman's welcome

Monmouth Young Rugby continues to grow, both in relation to player numbers, coaches and volunteers and we can all be pleased with the progress made last season. With new records being set at every age group, the trophy cabinet upstairs in the newly refurbished lounge is nearly full!

The appointment of a MRFC Schools Rugby Officer Craig Everett this August will have a profound effect on player numbers and help to cement our relationships with local schools and the greater rugby community.

We look forward to the 8th Annual Young Rugby Tournament this season, when we hope that our very own Monmouth Young Rugby players, who have recently won Welsh senior honours, Hallam Amos and Cameron Watson Boycott, will return to the club to inspire the next generation of young rugby players.

Last season also saw the establishment of our Lucky 4 Tote Lottery. Every ticket sold provides much needed revenue to fund projects at the Club. It is critical that every Young Rugby team takes responsibility in helping to sell tickets, to make a contribution to our future. Please buy a ticket – it could be you winning the weekly cash prize of up to £15,000.00!

Thank you to ALL our volunteers and sponsors

Once again, our many sponsors did us proud and provided a sound financial platform for us to achieve our ambitions last season. Combined with the fantastic band of volunteers at the club, it is not difficult to see why Monmouth RFC continues to flourish.

The end of last season saw Young Rugby’s third visit to The Tigers Challenge at Butlins Minehead, with us once again returning home with multiple trophies. This season we look forward to our next successful tour to Tenby, Pembrokeshire.

Last season saw the establishment of our Maidens Girls Rugby franchise which was a great success and which will continue this season as we help to develop girl’s rugby in Monmouthshire.

The highlight of the season for many was the Wales under 20s pre World Cup training Camp, which was hosted by the club in May 2016. A massive thank you to everyone who helped with organising the event and with billeting the 32 players in their homes. We all gained so much out of the event and everyone that took part thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Our season ended with Awards Nights for every age group, which gave everyone a chance to reflect and celebrate a job well done. The club also won an award – The best Community Club 2016 in WRU District A – making us the best community club in the region!!

We are about to embark on a new season, where lifelong friendships will be formed – future stars found - where rugby will continue to be played in the true spirit of the game – by rugby playing warriors and gentlemen - of all ages and abilities.

Welcome to Monmouth Young Rugby. I wish you all every success this season.

Chairman of Young Rugby,
