“Club members. I was copied the following email from one of our U10 parents whose son was unfortunately injured whilst on tour last weekend.  I thought you would all be lifted by such positive feedback on how this whole family were looked after by the U10 coaching and management team. Well done and thanks to everyone!
Ian Dance – MRFC Chairman”
I have sent this to a lot of people because i wasn’t sure of the correct target audience.  My name is Mike Roberts and i am the father of Vinnie Roberts who plays for MEDWAY RFC under 10’s or more commonly know ‘The Mustangs‘.
Vinnie loves Rugby, his favourite players are Brad Barrett and Neil Back (Vin is a hard hitter with the best of the smaller guys).  This weekend was to be a joyous occasion with the annual mini rugby tour and on Sunday we were all set up to watch a fantastic festival of rugby in Sleaford. So the opposition had the first play and set off on a charge, Vin(Vinnie) was up to make the first tackle and nailed it, but then unfortunately nailed his head on the ground, Vinnie didn’t move. It was from this point that i was reminded why rugby is so special and the following people in particular deserve acknowledgement.
  • Neil Stanton, Medway RFC mustang coach was absolutely brilliant with Vin, kind, caring compassionate and reassuring to a frantic dad, The man was outstanding was with him on the touchline at the really tricky part.
  • Carla Johns Medway RFC Mustang manager was legendary, she took us to the local hospital because my wife and I were really in a state of shock, she spent the whole morning and most of the afternoon with us, gave up her time as she has done all season in making sure that others were looked after before herself(bear in mind that her own son was playing and there was no hesitation in thinking of us first and missing the whole festival) selfless.
  • Darren Jones Mustangs head coach – What can I say, He is the most enthusiastic, passionate coach I have ever come across, quite rightly he has told us that Vin needs to stay out for 23 days and this is a good news story, he got the all clear from Grantham hospital and it’s not that serious BUT Darren is constantly asking after Vinnie and has made him feel so special. 
This is not the end of the story…….We joined from Gravesend RFC 2 years ago and it was the most amazing thing that we could have done for Vinnie’s rugby development, Coaches Darren Jones, Andy Johns, Neil Stanton have been truly phenomenal, they have created a culture not just in young kids but with the parents as well that it feels good to be part of a bigger family, they are so encouraging to all the players and I know for one that my son loves them all and feels really great about playing for Medway RFC.  I would like to nominate all of the above for a RFU award be it national. regional, county, it doesn’t matter.  These are the kind of people that keep rugby alive, give players hope, give them constructive criticism and the ‘go forward’ to keep playing and getting better.  As i said in my headline ‘ People and organisations talk about culture, few are dedicated enough to create one’ The mustangs management team have done this with aplomb and style, I tried to find Bill Beaumont’s e-mail address but could not find it, i know however he would get this and please send this on to him.
Thanks
Mike Roberts
