New Volunteers – We need your help

We are very lucky to have a large number of Volunteers eager to help out with all matters Rugby. For this we are most grateful. However, as we increase the activity at the Club, we really do need some further help from anyone who can spare some time. There are a huge amount of Jobs in the Clubhouse and on the grounds for anyone who can spare an hour once in a while or regular hours or days. This would be ideally suited to someone who is retired or has a little time on their hands. We are putting together a list of regular and ad hoc tasks that we require help with and would welcome anyone who can spare a little time. Please contact Steve Ward (chairman@sprufc.co.uk or 07891-637616) in the first place. Thanks for supporting your club.

Tiger Cubs

As I am sure you are aware, the Rugby Tots Franchise has been sold and the current Franchise finished at the end of June. The Club has taken the decision not to renew the Franchise, but to put in place our own training session for young aspiring Rugby Players. We are calling this ‘Tiger Cubs’ and this will be open to children from 3-6 years old. Initially, we are going to run this on Wednesday Evenings, starting at 6pm to coincide with the Under 7s and Under 8s Training. The aim is to start this on 14th September. Sessions will last 45 mins for 4-6 year olds and 30 mins for 3 year olds. The Tiger Cubs will be managed by Gareth Payne and Hamish Orr, who will ensure that the sessions are fun and meet our high standards for the safety of the Children. Gareth and Hamish are both […]

Terry Keepe – RIP (updated)

It is with great sadness that the club has to report the passing of another Club old boy, Terry Keepe. Although he had not been to the Club for a number of years, he will be remembered by many as a fiery hooker who became a very good society Referee. He could also be seen on the pitches on a Sunday morning refereeing the Junior games with aplomb. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Terry’s Funeral is at Agecroft Crematorium on Tuesday 16th August at 13:40, followed by a celebration of his life at Fairways Lodge in Prestwich. The family would be delighted for Members of Sedgley Park to attend the Funeral and/or the Celebration of Life. Please let me (Steve Ward) know if you wish to attend, so I can give the family and indication of numbers. The family have set up a tribute page to Terry […]
