During the last season I have been contacted on more than one occasion with news that one of our members/supporters has failed to live up to the high standards of behaviour expected from anyone representing UCFC whether as a player or a volunteer or a spectator. In general these have been fairly minor incidents by themselves, and have all been dealt with in an appropriate manner at the time.
Whilst this is very unusual it is still a cause for concern, and I would therefore like to take a moment to remind everyone of the core values we stand for as a club and the code of behaviours we adhere to:-
RFU VALUES :- Teamwork • Respect • Enjoyment • Discipline • Sportsmanship
Everyone involved in rugby in England, whether as a player, coach, referee, administrator, parent or spectator is expected to uphold these values.
CODE OF RUGBY
Play to win - but not at all cost.
Win with dignity, lose with grace.
Observe the Laws and regulations of the game.
Respect opponents, referees and all participants.
Reject cheating, racism, violence and drugs.
Value volunteers and paid officials alike.
Enjoy the game.
Remember that we should be good hosts and good guests at all times, and you don’t have to be wearing the shirt to be representing the Club.
