Buxton needs you !

Calling on all age groups!! Minis, youth boys & girls and adults!!

Buxton needs you!!

So here’s the deal….. during the Buxton Festival we are having a mud run at 1000hrs Sunday morning and the club needs every group to design, build, supervise and subsequently pack away an obstacle.
I’m calling on all managers to rally their troops, get their thinking caps on and design something that is challenging, fun, appropriate for all ages and ultimately – safe!!
Please submit your designs (or ideas) to me and myself and our club Chairman, Mo, will check them, coordinate with other groups and allocate a space on the course.
We are limited with the kit we can provide, so we ask that you are able to beg, borrow and provide your own gear wherever possible.
Please could you get your designs to us by Friday 9th July – please email to Chairman Mo!
We look forward to seeing them. Remember challenging, fun, appropriate for all ages and SAFE!!
Thanks – please could you ensure this message is disseminated and shared throughout all of the club’s group pages.

MRFC Girls – Coaching and Management Team 2021-2022 Season

I’m very pleased to announce our coaching and management team for next season.  We start next season in a very healthy position with a record breaking 14 U13s, 17 U15s and 44 U18s.
We know those numbers will grow even more over the summer and into the new season.  We say goodbye and thank you to two wonderful coaches in Jamie Settle and Mike Harrison whose daughters move on from our girls section. We shall give them a proper send off on the 10th July end of season party.
And finally,Richard Warran finishes in the U18s and starts all over again with the U13s. Only 7 more years Rich. 😂  Our section wouldn’t be a success if it wasn’t for all of these volunteers, so a huge thank you and bring on next season.

More accolades for the MRFC Girls Section

Another outstanding achievement for our Medway RFC Girls section. Four of our U18 girls have been selected for elite rugby training and education programmes at Henley College (Ealing Trailfinders) and Gloucester-Hartbury.
These full time residential programmes will see our girls study either A Levels, National Diplomas or Degrees. In addition to their study, they join elite rugby training programmes at the colleges to develop them to a professional rugby standard.
Whilst we will be very sorry to say an early goodbye to these fabulous young ladies, we are immensely proud of them as individuals and proud of the success of our girls rugby programme at Medway RFC, creating the future superstars of female rugby.
This coming Sunday all four girls will play their last game (at least for a while) in the Scarlet and Gold colours of Medway RFC, so a day of mixed emotions ahead.
A huge congratulations to:
Tess White (Gloucester-Hartbury)
Amelia Williams (Gloucester-Hartbury)
Sarah Harrison (Henley)
Sophie Molton (Henley)
