Spirit of the Game

Welcome, one and all, to the team of the town,
The local community rugby club, acclaimed of well renown
We know once you’ve spent time here, you’ll understand all the fuss,
But let me take this chance to tell you a little about us.

We’re a growing, happy rugby club who do well, compete and thrive
Historians tell us that our first games took place in 1965,
And although the Guinness Book of Records says other clubs do us precede,
Here at Northwich, we prefer our Guinness to drink, rather than to read!

We ‘play in the original spirit’ here, enjoying pre-match lunch and social dinners,
Our committee are all stalwarts with long distinguished careers.
We are One club committed, and integrated are the players,
With a small group of Coffin Dodger, volunteers

Over the years at Northwich, these few have bent our ears.
Reminiscing of past glories after quaffing many beers
Then we have our sponsors, the backbone of many clubs
Not forgetting our invisible, getting YOU to pay your subs

The club is all inclusive: no one’s too old or small;
A superb group of minis, excellent in ruck and maul
There’s talent in our Youth team and an enthusiastic group of Vets,
Though often, the morning after, aches and pains cause them regrets!

A qualified group of coaches who keep us at our peak!
Behind the scenes there’s plenty, to get sorted every week,
A terrace of supporters; but alas too many to name!
We’ve a plethora of alickadoos, who come to every game.

So what I’m trying to tell you, is you are welcome here,
Join us in the Sports Bar, stay and grab yourselves a beer!
And let us all remember, no matter what the score, it’s about the spirit of the game,
So bring your spirit, pride and camaraderie -and we will do the same!

Enjoy the Craic and enjoy your rugby club, everyone!
