Welcome back everyone and I hope your starting to get just a little bit excited as the clock continues to count down towards the new season ahead, not that long now especially with the pre-season friendlies just around the corner, which I will get to fairly soon. Elsewhere is this edition we have both the Colts and Athletic fixtures now ready and published for everyone but before all that we start this blog by introducing you to our new membership secretary Mr John Sloley. John has a massive task ahead as we can now announce that BRFC memberships are available from today and even better news the prized and valued Silver membership is just £100 for the season (£90 for over 65’s) for entry to ALL 15 home National 2 South league games for the Chiefs. To get in touch with John just email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
As you know the season gets underway on September 4th with Barnstaple Chiefs first home game on the 11th. Entry on the day is £10 for each home league fixture but even better buy a Silver membership and save yourself a whopping £50 for the full fixture list of home games. Not only that but you also become a full member of Barnstaple Rugby Football Club with all the entitlements and prestige that comes with it. So what are you waiting for get over to the website and purchase your Silver membership or just click on the following link. MEMBERSHIP
August see’s the return of the Pre-season friendlies and Barnstaple has four this year, all against Devon opposition with Ivybidge, Okehampton and Exmouth coming to Pottington Road, while the Chiefs take a visit to Brixham. This will be a great chance to see how the team shapes up just before the season starts. Dates and times are as shown below. This will be your first chance to see what exciting new signings we have for the coming season.
Finally they have sorted the Colts and Athletics fixtures out and both can be found on this website as will the newly reformed Bucc’s which I hope to have up in the next day or two. Can Athletic finally win that merit table title after being so close over the last two seasons, with the influx of some talented former Colts players who have moved on to senior rugby everything is possible this time around.
So just a brief post to let you know rugby is almost here so don’t forget to get those dates into your diary for what will possibly be the greatest season yet. Before we go remember the club is also showing ALL the Lions test matches against South Africa, I haven’t had details as yet but I’m sure if you contact Jacqui Edwards at BOOKINGS she will let you know how to reserve your place to watch these two great teams go head to head this summer.
