Aspatria have the players but do they have a leader.
Aspatria have been invited to join a new iniative from Cumbria RU. I am sure there are plenty of bodies about to get a team but what we really need is someone to put their hand up and lead. Is than you? If so let us know.

Cumbria Vets Programme 2011-2012
I am writing to inform you and your Club of the Cumbria Vets programme this year. As Part of the Choose rugby initiative and taking the opportunity that the Rugby World Cup will provide in creating new interest in the sport, we are looking to run 3 Vets festivals throughout the coming season. We are hoping that clubs will follow up from these festivals by organising a Vets match with another club over Easter Weekend, which we are going to promoting as Vets weekend throughout the county.
The Idea of the Vets programme is to help produce new or returning players to the game, to support your already existing teams within your clubs. We have decided to run these days on a Sunday for a couple of reasons:
1. So there is no clash with the Cumbria Shield League.
2. To give people an opportunity to play who may not be able to on a Saturday.
The festivals will be run at:
• Workington RUFC on 27th November 2011 1pm start
• Carlisle RUFC on 29th January 2012 1pm start
• Windermere on 18th March 2012 1pm start
• Vets weekend 6th – 9th April
The rules for the festivals are:
• Between 10 – 15 a – side (bring what numbers you can)
• Players over 35 (2 players are allowed to be between 30 and 35)
• Normal RFU Rules
I look forward to hearing from you and if you would like more information feel free to contact me. If you would like a hand I am sure your local Community Rugby Coach would help out.
