Corona Virus update

Southport Rugby Club Statement
Corona Virus 21/03/2020

Following the Governments recent press conferences and subsequent guidance from the RFU all rugby activity at the club will cease immediately this includes training and matches. Please see link below

Following the Governments announcements yesterday the clubhouse and bar will also close until further notice. This will be kept under review and we will keep you updated in the event of any change.
This will be a difficult period for the Club and there can be no certainty as to when the Clubhouse will re-open for business again. We are, however, committed to returning to normal operations as soon as possible and are planning for a number of events to be moved to late Summer or Autumn. Details will follow in due course.
As regards the competitions that the club teams are involved in at all levels the RFU have issued the following guidance.
Adult competitions - we are currently looking into the implications on, and options for, the conclusion of our Adult Men’s and Adult Women’s competitions for this season. This review work is expected to take the next few weeks and a final position is unlikely to be clear until April.

Age Grade season and competitions - the regulated Age Grade season finishes for clubs, schools and colleges on Sunday 10 May. We are aware that the current suspension of all rugby until Tuesday 14 April impacts on some competitions, we are exploring options on this and any updated position will follow once available.

We will monitor the current state of affairs and issue an update as and when the situation changes.
