2009 Review

Well done and a big thank you to everyone who entered into the spirit of the Xmas funday, players and supporters alike. Mr Gregg Fabb wins the fancy dress 1st prize in his red longjohns, although Scott Caplin's hat and Phil Jones' modern dance outfit were a close second and third. I think the Parents proved to be testing opponents, but on the day they weren't quite up to the high standard of the Players.

We will have a break this coming weekend (27/12/09)to enjoy the festivities, but we aim to rejoin again on 03/01/10 to play away at Waunarlwydd. Details on times and directions will follow on the blog next week, but for now I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I have some Kooga Vortex MRFC training tops for those that couldn't make it on the day. I can either distibute them in the New Year, or if you would prefer you can contact me this week if you want to give them out for Xmas.

2009 has proved a mixed bag with great weather and rugby on offer through September and October, but with November a bit if a damp squib to say the least. The Players individual skills are really beginning to develop, but more importantly in my book, they all seem to be enjoying it and getting to know each other more as a team, on and off the pitch, which will pay great dividend in the future. Thank you to all of you who have contributed to the building of the team through the year, be it supporting in the cold and rain, collecting tags and carrying bags, fundraising, assisting with the coaching, or helping on the catering front. Your continued contributions through 2010 will again be highly valued and will no doubt assist in keeping the team and club something to be very proud to be a part of.

"The Frost Report" 20/12/09 0930hrs

We intend to meet as planned (10.45am-11.00am) at Underhill to see if pitches have thawed out enough. If pitches are deemed unplayable, then the backup plan is to congregate at Caswell beach for around 11.30am.

Please accept my apologies to all, the Funday is this Sunday the 20th December (not 27th as originally posted).

A nice lay in awaits this week with a later kick off time of 11am for the Parents v Players game at Underhill Park, then all back to the Rugby Club after the match.

I felt genuine progress was being made in a (purposely) short match against a very enthusiastic and competitive U8's Bont outfit that have had a full 12 months more experience than us. The Vikings seemed to take a bit of the concept of supporting the ball carrier (which we practised beforehand) into the match, more than before. The fact that we had a game of any description was a triumph in itself after all the rain in the last 6-7 weeks, and given the cold conditions I thought everyone did fantastically well(especially all parents stood freezing on the touchline) - your steadfast support is really appreciated.

On that note, you will all have the opportunity to keep warm this Sunday at Underhill Park in the Xmas Players v Parents match - Mums, Dads, Gramps and Grans not to mention Aunts and Uncles are all welcome to join in - Santa hats and red tops are obligatory for all Adults since it is Christmas!(times to be advised).

We will combine with the u6's and play on the top soccer pitch and have Hot Dogs and some Xmas treats afterwards. (Again, exact times and post match venue to be advised).

looking positive for Sunday!

Hip hip hooray! The sun is shining and with the forecast looking positive, we are hoping for one last tag game before 2010 is upon us.

Pontardulais have confirmed they have a team for us to play. Please be at Bishopston soon after 10am, hopefully we will have a 10.30 kick off.

We are also hoping for a Vikings vs Dads, Mums, Grampa, Grandma, Uncle, Auntie extravaganza on the 20th December. More details to follow.

See you all on Sunday for the match!

If so you can help the club raise funds by using the link posted on the Mumbles Wildcats blog (see sidebar). It will cost no more than the price through Amazon would anyway, but the club will receive a small % of the value of the goods as cashback from Amazon.
