Reply to Nigel, JKHS

Sorry Nigel, I did not return home and see your email until after you would have finished work for the summer holidays. On the off-chance that you read this at home during the holidays, the answer is yes - I can be there, 10:30 on both days.

Ross Rugby Football Club - 'Unfamiliar Positions'

Ross' season kicks off on the 20th August with a trial game at home. This will be a first opportunity to take stock of this summer's hard work and give those new or returning to the game a chance to stretch their legs. The game promises to provide some interesting combinations of players, as no positions in the team are given this year. The presence of new blood and some old familiar faces returning during the off season, will undoubtedly have had an impact, as has the impact of those players looking to secure positions different to that which they held last year, the starting line up for the first game may well see some players in unfamiliar positions. Those who are looking to play this season will at least have a first chance to get a feel of the ball and an opportunity to prove themselves during this first trial game. The emphasis this year is for Ross to be expanding on the successful aspects of their game from last season and converting the commitment and skill into points on the board.

The committee was recently able to clarify that Ross are entered into at least three competitions at both national and local level as well as looking to enhance their position in the regular league. Feedback from the committee confirms that several sponsors are looking to contribute to the club this year in support of they 2005/2006 season though in what capacity is yet to be clarified. There are a number of people this season working behind the scenes to bring to the club the extras which maintain Ross' status as something more that just a club for people who play rugby.

Training proper has started in July and despite the warm weather has seen continued commitment from players keen to make an impact from the very first game. Training continues at 6:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the sports centre off Wilton Road. Ross continues to extend the offer to anyone experienced or new to the game or just wishing to have a run out at their local club to come and get involved on a Tuesday or Thursday.

Looking forward to the start of the 2005 Season and the first Match on August 20th 2005 at the sports centre ground of Wilton road.
