Friends of Taunton Titans Association

4 weeks ago By Richard Walford

The Friends of Taunton Titans (formerly known as “Friends of Taunton Rugby”) was started in the summer of 2006

with the main objective being to improve the opportunities for senior players at Taunton Rugby Football Club, mainly by fundraising, to ensure that they played rugby at as high a level as possible for the benefit of the players, the club and local community as well.

  • Currently the association is managed by a group of Trustees: Stephen Bell / Dick Macey / Richard Walford (Secretary & Treasurer) / Ray Hall / Alan Rouse / Dave Jarvis / Brian Tanner / Bernie Burnett) appointed each year at its Annual General Meeting. This year the AGM will be held on Tuesday 25th July at 18.30 at Hyde Park prior to the parent club’s AGM at 19.30.
  • In the last eleven years the association has contributed IRO £146k towards the playing budget of senior rugby within TRFC.

  • We have an annual minimum subscription of £100.00

  • In 2017/18 we are acting as administrators in TRFC’s “push for promotion” initiative

  • Most of our fundraising comes from pre-match lunches arranged to coincide with Titans home league games.

  • These events, of which there has been IRO of 85+ over the 11 year period, have proved very popular and can range in number of attendees from 50 to 300, providing a very pleasant easy way of socialising and networking at the same time.

  • Due to the inevitable increase in cost prices passed onto the Association by TRFC our 2 x course lunches will in 2017/18 be £18.00 per head plus admission charge on the gate if not a season ticket holder.

  • We are always looking for new members so if you would like to join us, or if you would like to contribute towards the “push for promotion” initiative, then please feel free to contact me at rwalford_trfc@btinternet.com or phone me on 07712 770115 and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

If you and your family / friends or business colleagues would like to join us for one of our pre-match lunches (see dates for 2017/18 season below) then please let Alan Rouse know on alan.blagdon@gmail.com - Mob: 07845 778898 - BOLD PRINT or James Tolman on james.tolman@tauntonrfc.co.uk - 01823 336363 - NOT BOLD PRINT
