Ipswich RFC Colts-2016-17IPSWICH RFC COLTS (2016-2017 SEASON)

1 SEP 2016

Good day,

After the successes of last season where the IPSWICH COLTS fielded two teams throughout the season and completed 50 playing commitments, this year we will field the one side playing in Eastern Counties Competitions and the National Cup  – as well as completing a number of friendly fixtures.

At the time of writing, the COLTS is a squad numbering 23 players and so we will welcome any new recruits that are willing to give Rugby at Ipswich RFC a go – regardless of ability or experience.

Training sessions are at Humber Doucy Lane (HDL) on Wednesday evenings (7.00-9.00pm) with most games kicking off on Sunday mornings (11.00am).

The coaches will be pleased to meet with any lad that is willing to have a go! Following an assessment of ability, experienced newcomers may find themselves in the match day squad within a fortnight of joining.

This year, registration to join the squad takes place at HDL on the morning of Sunday 4 September 10.00am – with training to follow (10.30-12.00pm).

The season kicks off with a friendly against Southwold RFC (at HDL) the following Sunday (11 September).

In common with the RFU we believe in, and hold dear, the Core Values of TEAMWORK – ENJOYMENT – DISCIPLINE – RESPECT and SPORTSMANSHIP.

So, lets have another successful season!
