On behalf of Ipswich RFC and the Mini & Juniors section, I am again delighted to extend a warm welcome to all parents, players and supporters alike, whether you are returning to the club for the new season or joining us as a new recruit. I look forward to enjoying with you over the forthcoming season what I hope will be another great year of rugby and the enjoyment that this brings to all involved. Above all, as last season, I would ask that you continue to support the game, the players and the club in a positive manner to ensure that we achieve the absolute maximum enjoyment and camaraderie for all that play and visit us at Humber Doucy Lane, the home of Ipswich Rugby Club.
Last season we enjoyed a further successful year throughout the section, particularly in respect to our achievements in the various cup competitions. Our juniors were well represented at County level, Schools of Rugby, EPDG and even the Northants Academy. This success, however, is not just down to individual talent but also the support of a host of coaches, managers, parents and volunteers and on behalf of all the Ipswich players, past and present, I offer my sincere gratitude.
To become a Club member, please ask for details or check the website and take the opportunity to support your club, having your voice heard can make a real contribution to the on-going success at Ipswich.
Finally, as before, I hope that all players have an exciting and injury free season and that everyone enjoys their rugby. Game on!
