It was great to see the majority of last year's regular players back for a new season and to get stuck into the fray of the contact era. Well done all you guys. Great to see you and the parents again for the 2017/18 season and thanks to the new players/parents for joining us too.
Next week, Sunday 17th, Sep we've got one more fun/training session at the usual time followed by an early fun session and matches with our friends at Eastleigh Rugby Club on the 24th. Do check emails already sent for news about this but players/parents who haven't handed in completed paperwork and paid the new seasons subs (of £55 per player and/or £75 for two and/or £15 per subsequent players) by or on Sunday 17th won't be covered for insurance purposes and won't be able to make the trip on the 24th - so do get those forms completed and ready to hand over to me on Sunday. Don't forget that you can alternatively pay online on the club site instead: http://www.vectisrugby.co.uk/payments.
For faces we didn't see on Sunday: Come back! We missed you. Emails with pre-completed forms have been sent to you or grab a fresh copy from the homepage.
Final reminder for next week (the 17th) don't forget wet-weather gear, gum shields and a decent pair of boots - and don't forget to check the club boot bag if your old boots are getting too small and you want to swap them for a bigger size (or just donate your old boots for the next generation).
If you still have any queries for the coming season do call/email directly any time that suits. Calls received after midnight will be forwarded to Miles Watts so do call anytime. ;-)
