ABOUT SALISBURY RFC

CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE

Welcome to the 20197/20 season

As another new season begins, we all look forward to many opportunities to celebrate successes but realise there will be challenges along the way. Not least, the fulfilment of our many fixtures and all the lettings and events whilst we complete the building of our new changing rooms.


The 1st XV continuing in South West 1 (East), welcome a number of new players and coaches to the squad and 2nd, 3rd & 4th Men's teams continue in their D&W leagues. The Women's team step up their aspirations this season, entering the RFY NC3 League.  Player availability is a significant factor in all our senior team's successes and the whole Club is committed to producing a positive culture across all the teams to encourage and sustain player engagement.


The Youth section is buoyant and with World Cup fixtures about to start in Japan we expect to be welcoming many new young players to the game. Last season saw a significant investment of time and funds into Youth Coach qualifications and we look forward to the children reaping the rewards of the high-quality coaching Salisbury RFC provides this season and beyond.


Walking Rugby continues to grow and has now established a committee to help with the arrangements of training and festivals.  Having watched the July Festival, their sportsmanship and enthusiasm is to be applauded.


Project All Change, the redevelopment of our changing facilities has finally begun, following several seasons of fundraising efforts.  Thanks to all those who have given so much time, effort, and funds to this project and we hope everyone who visits Salisbury RFC will be able to appreciate what has been achieved for the long-term benefit of the Club. The opportunity to 'Buy a Brick' which will be displayed on the front of the building for future generations, continues this season. Please show your support. Details are on the website and in the Club.


Finally I remind you of the many social events that take place at the Clubhouse, including a return of the Club Captain's Dinner this season.  I look forward to seeing you at the Club to enjoy all the successes and challenges the season has to offer.
 

Best wishes,

Nicola Rawnson

Chairman of the Salisbury Rugby Club
