young rugby chairman's welcome

Welcome to Monmouth Young Rugby

Last season was yet another outstanding success for Monmouth Young Rugby with a record 76 new players joining the club at all age groups from U7s right through to U16s. This success was further complimented by yet more coaches passing their WRU Level 1 and 2 courses to further boost the ever expanding group of volunteers who continue to make the club one we can all be truly proud of!

Volunteers make up the very foundations of our club and help us to ensure we offer every member the opportunity to play rugby in a safe environment with the best facilities possible. I am very proud of the fact that as a club we continue to strive each season to review, remedy and improve all our offerings throughout the club both on and off the pitch, something which would not be possible without the generous support of our many sponsors. Thank you so much for your continued support for your club.

The club Lucky 4 Tote Lottery also continues to provide much needed weekly revenue for Monmouth RFC so please buy a £1 ticket for the draw each Thursday - last season saw us once again host a very successful Young Rugby Festival led by Young Rugby Vice Chairman David Lalley and early indications for the next Festival are that it will be even bigger than those before!

On the pitch we continued to uphold the club ethos of “Warriors and Gentleman” with some fantastic rugby played in all weathers and yet more silverware collected. Once again The Griffins took top Honours scooping the Inaugural Osprey’s Rocks Trophy at Porthcawl and other age groups enjoyed great success on our end of season tour to The Tigers Challenge at Butlins Minehead and the Bath Festival. Awards nights rounded off the season which gave everyone the opportunity to reflect on another fantastic season of rugby and a job well done.

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

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