Second Pre Season Warm Up This Saturday, 29th August
Norwich play their second of three warm up games this weekend at home against Huntingdon & District RFC. Come along and support the players. This is a whole squad session so there will be a lot of players keen to catch the eye of the coaches.
Please note kick off is 3:00pm
Charity Yoga Day in support of trafficked children in Kolkata
Katia has been working with the players introducing them to the flexibility enhancing qualities of Yoga. We're not too sure how she got on with Popey as 'Popey' and 'Flexibility' don't necessarily sit obviously together in the same sentence. However, grateful for her help, we'd like to promote this worthwhile charity day that she is hosting to raise funds for in support of trafficked children in Kolkata. If you are able to support her either by attending or just making a donation, please do. A larger version of the poster is on the downloads page. Thank you.
Many Thanks - Club Clean Up Day
Many thanks to all those members that pitched in to tidy the club up on our annual pre-season clean up session. Special thanks to Mark Bartram of Bartram Mowers for the use of his commercial machinery that Henson looks forward to playing with every year. With the assistance of the senior players and the massed ranks and friends of the Regester clan, we were finished in a couple of hours and munching our way through bacon rolls and drinking tea. The place looks a whole lot better now. Thanks to everyone that came to help.
Limited Run Norwich Rugby Club Umbrella
Now in stock in the club shop, a limited run of 50 high quality umbrellas. They are vented storm proof sports umbrellas, 14mm fibreglass shaft, 75mm storm proof ribs, rubber coated pistol grip handle, and matching colour sleeve as modeled by the not at all superstitious Mark Loveday.
Priced at £30 these will make an excellent Christmas present to put aside or to use yourself and be the envy of all your friends, at least when it's raining.
Sponsors support for the Colts
We are most grateful to Lanpro Services and the Cottage pub in Thorpe for their generous support of the Colts. Lanpro have bought new post protectors and flags for the Colts and The Cottage Pub have provided dress shirts for the Colts team.
Chris Leeming from Lanpro said "We recognised the vital importance of helping the development of our Colts into senior rugby. We are delighted to provide some support to Julian and his team and wish them all the very best for the season ahead."
