This Friday 14th we will be hosting an U16s game between King Edwards Five Ways and King Edward School. Kick off is 7.00pm and the clubhouse will be open. We hosted a similar event earlier in the season, the standard of rugby was very high and it made for an entertaining game. Come down to watch.
The 1st XV are at home this coming Saturday at Avery Fields and would welcome your support. The clubhouse will be open as usual. The afternoon has been declared Christmas Jumper Day so come down to watch wearing your finest seasonal knitwear. As ever it is an open afternoon but we are especially looking forward to welcoming our Past Players that day.
Avery Fields will be hosting another Open Mic Night on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th. To book as a performer contact Anthony Theopahnous. For other information contact Kevin in the clubhouse. There are further dates planned for January 2019 too.
We have a number of Christmas Events coming up.
Our Minis & Juniors have their annual Kids’ Christmas Party this Sunday 16th December at Avery Fields after training (11.30 onwards). And then there is a Minis & Juniors Adults’ Social again at Avery Fields on Friday 21st December.
The organisers of the Kids Christmas Party would be grateful if anyone has a fake tree and/or decorations that they can lend or donate in advance of Sunday. Please can you contact Richard Underwood if you can help.
Add some Rugby to your Christmas on Saturday 29th December. The clubhouse will be open from 12.00pm and showing Harlequins vs Wasps on the big screens as well as putting on some Special Offers on drinks throughout the afternoon.
Otherwise the club will be closed from 23rd December opening again at 4.00pm on New Years Day. It will be business as usual from then on.
We have a newly appointed Managing Director at Bournville having recently announced former Worcester, Birmingham & Solihull and Coventry Director of Rugby, Phil Maynard, to the role.
“I have been impressed with the Bournville set-up over a number of years, watching from afar as they have developed on and off the field. Over the last ten years they have risen through the league structure, building a reputation as a great place for amateur and semi-professional rugby, it was clear not having a ground was an issue, but now they have their first permanent home in their 109 year history, the sky is the limit”.
