The best way to keep up to date with Chippenham RFC


Mini Rugby - THIS WEEKEND and TOUR

5 years ago By Matthew Stephen

The weather is now the topic of conversation, with Bath Festival this Sunday and then the West Coast Festival - T-Shirts or Wellies??

And there's still more to come in this busy season! If you love Rugby - Chippenham RFC is where tiz!!

This Wednesday, The Firsts are taking on Oldfield RFC in the Bath Combination Final. It's being played at The Rec 8.00pm KO. If you can get down to Bath, it promises to be a great Final and it's free to get in.

This Sunday (29th) we have the Bath Festival for the U8's, U10's and U12's which is being held at The Rec so watch out for traffic chaos in Bath. This is always a very well run event attended by a large number of local clubs.

The weather forecast is saying 14C, with a mix of sunshine and rain (A usual forecast for this time of year!!).

Also on Sunday, there's training for the U6's, U7's, U9's and U11's at the Club.

Please note that Dorset and Wilts U17's are taking part in a triangular fixture against Irish Exiles and Welsh Exiles on Sunday. This is being played at Chippenham and a number of our Juniors have been selected. First match starts at 3.00pm.

Talking about the Twin County, they've just put out a Newsletter (Link below) and great to see that Chippenham Mini Section have two articles, covering the Chippenham Festival and Olly Barkley's involvement and the U12's and U11's winning the Land Rover Cup. Good to see Mighty Chippenham getting the recognition it deserves!!

A little reminder that all the plans for the West Coast Festival in Barnstaple on 4th May to 7th May are going really well, thanks to Naomi and all the Team Managers. We have over 100 players taking part and over 300 travelling and staying for the weekend. It will be great fun and this years Tour Theme is Star Wars, May the 4th be with you!!

All Players will be presented with their unique Tour T-Shirts on the Friday Evening - (Artwork below) and the order has now been placed. We do have a small number of extra ones and these will be sold on site on the Friday the 4th.

So get your Light Sabres ready and don't stray into the Dark Side AKA Taff's Tavern.

Where next?
