A message from Rob Newman, Club President

Dear Ironsider,

I know many of you will be feeling despondent as Rugby returns to Stage A on the roadmap and all activities are cancelled.  The difference this time compared to March last year is that now there is a vaccine and, with it, real hope that life can soon return to a pre-COVID state.  Once the vaccination programme is sufficiently underway, lets us hope that we will see schools re-open and U18 sports allowed to continue.  However, those green fields may be slightly further off that we hope, and we should be prepared for possibly up to three more months of mud to wade through before restrictions are lifted. 

In order to maintain spirits during the coming weeks, the Club is looking to see what can be organised across all age groups.  On Thursday 14 Jan, the Ladies are arranging a Zoom bake-a-long with our own patisserie chef, Tania, showing off her special choc chip cookies (Gordon Ramsay, eat your heart out!).  We are looking at how to provide on-line strength and conditioning with our own Jason ‘Wicks’; and we are seeing if we can run any individual skills challenges or coaching alongside the RFU’s on-line offering.  Would anyone like to volunteer to help organise a virtual ‘Rugby Dinner’?  If anyone has any ideas, please drop me an email and let’s try and roll it out across the Club. 

Several Ironsiders were very active with charitable activities and initiatives during Lockdown 1.0.  If anyone has an idea this time, please can you drop an email to our Charity Officer, Tony Oulton, so we can try to maximise the funding capability of the whole Club.

January and February are rugby months and although we cannot be out playing, as a community of some 1,500 parents and players we can be a huge force for good.  We have those core rugby characteristics of resilience, discipline and enjoyment that will help sustain us and those around us over the next few weeks.  We can see through the mud to the green fields ahead. We are Ironsiders.

Rob Newman
Club President
