Our new and innovative team has been formed consisting of 11 active members spanning across the Club including our younger Senior Players, Committee Members & Coaches including the appointment of a dedicated Club Requirement Officer, this being 1st XV Player Sid Hiremutt.
The Club has provided and reserved a Budget to accompany the team of £2’500 which is already being used for the purchase of Flyers, Banners and more.
The main purpose of the team is to focus on recruiting new players, attracting players that may have stopped playing our great sport of Rugby and increase team numbers across the Club. This will bring fresh ideas, support our social media communications and ensuring Eastbourne is visible within the Community and wider to attract players to our great Club.
This will be a phased approach and the two areas currently focused upon are 17-30 year olds but will soon be extending to our Youth Section and areas where numbers can improve upon.
To date the team have;
- Attended Airbourne Event in Eastbourne Polo’s handing out Flyers
- Will be hosting a Stall at the Brighton Uni Fresher’s Week, Eastbourne Campus on September 26th with Banners, Flyers, wrist bands etc.
- Posters, Flyers distributed around Eastbourne including clothes shops, gyms, pub’s and even food stores.
- Commenced a FaceBook advertising campaign targeting every male from 17-30 within an 18-mile radius.
- And much more.....
