Use of Mumbles Rugby Club

A big thank you to all of you who regularly make the effort to return to the rugby club after matches and training - your attendance and support is really appreciated (especially given it's location away from the pitch and the difficulties parking etc). Generally, whilst I feel the behaviour of our players has been impeccable to date, can I please highlight to parents their obligations towards junior players at the club:-

1. Whilst no boots are permitted to be worn in the club, junior members are requested to wear clean shoes or trainers at all times since there can be small pieces of glass found on the floors.

2. Junior members are requested not to stand/walk on chairs or benches.
3. Junior members are requested not to run in the club and to keep general horseplay to the dancefloor and immediate surrounding area as tables and the bar area can be loaded with glasses.

4. Junior members are requested to refrain from convening at the window in the corner of the club on the raised platform. The glass in this window is not toughened.

5. Junior members are requested to refrain from playing on the stairs or within the toilets

6. Please ensure all rubbish including unfinished food is placed in the black bins provided. If no bins are apparent, please ask behind the bar.

7. The Fire Escape is only to be used in the event of an emergency, not for ventilation or access. Please report it if you see it open.

8. No junior members are permitted within the kitchen or behind the bar areas.

With everyones co-operation we can look forward to building on the already proud history of our club with our own generation of players.

Gorseinon match report

Well done to both the Gorseinon and Mumbles teams today who both played with good spirit and with no little display of determination and skill. A big thank you also goes to Gorseinon for continuously fielding a team to give both our teams a good game each, and also for making the effort to return to our clubhouse where Sara and Carol fed the masses with aplomb.

South Gower Review and Sunday 21st March Arrangements

A big thank you to Lee and everyone else who helped contribute to what I understand was a most enjoyable day at South Gower RFC. You will no doubt be glad to hear that my iron count is fully restored to normal levels following my prescribed course of Guinness in Ireland, so (weather permitting - rain is forecast so please check blog Sunday @10am) training will resume this weekend at 11am at Underhill Park. A big thanks also go to Jan and Emma for organising the hot dogs last time, and to Sara for volunteering this week - unfortunately the Rugby Club have a prior booking and the Cricket Club are not opening, so there will be no after match function.
