…With a more local feel to the league, this can only be a good thing for clubs and their supporters. Our supporters will no doubt follow us to away games without the need for a passport like last season. Alnwick away last season was only for the seasoned travellers.
A quick look back at last season saw our 1st Team endure a very challenging season but came through it gaining valuable experience at level 5. The 2nd Team after a very trying start came through with a great finish to the season with some notable scalps, who can forget Chester at home? And last but not least the 3rd Team, who made us all wait literally until the last minute to gain promotion on the last day of the season – well done boys.
I know anyone who pulls on a BRFC shirt is proud to do so and myself and all the “Old Boys” will always support you home and away, usually very vocally.
I would like to formally welcome all new players to the club for the forthcoming season at all levels, you will find us a family club with a reputation for good hospitality, enjoy the season and the bar.
We look forward to renewing old acquaintances, like Stockport and Manchester in the new Regional 1 North West league and as is the rugby law enjoying a pint at the bar with all visiting teams, after we win of course.
Finally, I need to highlight one part of the Burnage Rugby Club which sometimes goes under the radar. I can’t name all involved but with Mike Thomas and all the Academy “helpers/coaches, “ this club is in a very good position going forward. The Academy goes from strength to strength year on year and we will reap the benefits at open age in the very near future. Many thanks Mike, can you please pass on my gratitude to all your “team” from myself and the rest of Burnage RFC. It is all done on a volunteer basis and it doesn’t go unnoticed.
