Committee/Club Update

Evening all,

It's been a while since a club update was communicated via email. After a long committee meeting last night, it was agreed that I (Aitch) would start a weekly club update, to inform all of those not on Faceache of the on-goings of our rugby club.

An emergency meeting was held after committee last night, the upshot being that your rugby club needs you. We are now two months into only being able to field one team due to an extended injury list, but more importantly a long list of absent friends. Please note the below is a call to arms. Your club needs you.

Woking RFC - Woking Club of the Year 2018

At the awards evening last night Woking Rugby Club claimed a top award , Woking ‘Club of the Year’. With the first team being runners up in ‘Team of the Year’ it was a very successful night for the club.

President Mr Stanley Fisher commented that the recognition was well deserved by both the 1st XV led last season by captain Michael Aitchison and all those volunteers and members that make Woking Rugby Club such a great club to be part of paying particular tribute to long standing driving force and Club Captain Mr Richard Grady.
